Talking Body Lifted on 33" BFG's

Ok well it has been a while since i have posted here but i figure its about time i do, the past weekend i installed a 3" BL from Performance Accesorries, then i went and ordered some 33" BFG All Terrain T/A KO's and got them put on yesterday. Washed her up (quickly, its only 1 degree C. out) and went and snapped some pics.










































Some future mods i am thinking about are:
-new rear bumper(one thats not bent and get it lifted)
-Fender Flares
-Herculiner on bottom of truck, fender flares and bumpers (like 00RedRangerXLT did)
-Headlight mod
-Paint emblems black
-OHC
-CB or Police Scanner (maybe both... any units 2 in 1??)
-maybe some window tint

What do you think? any other ideas?

Easy to fix if you have the brackets still, or just throw a roll pan on it!

Can you unbolt the bracket from the frame? Try soaking it every day for a couple days with wd40 or something and get something with some torque to move the bolts

Looks really good. Did you do it all yourself?

Ya it is just a retainer it kinda makes it a pain to get lined up especially with a hitch and doing it by yourself.

If you having trouble spray the bolts down with PB blaster or another penetrating oil to help.
