if you go with a spindle lift atleast go with 32's , K&N air intake is not needed just do the airbox mod,

Well I'm getting the tires before the lift and I heard 32's would rub too much. I'm not getting the full CAI, just the filter.

Oh sweet. I'll look into 32s. I just wish I wasn't 450 miles away from all of my tools. I would crank my tbars this weekend if I could.

Well I don't really plan on getting a whole new axle. What do you suggest I do with the axle that I currently have?
