yes, and you can tell theyre spindles because the front its way off the tire, if it just had 31s and no lift, theyd be stuffed. and get 2in lift shackles for the back, or blocks. whatever you feel like doing.

That's actually before the spindle lift. Here's my truck now.

This is a 2001 XLT 2WD. I have 3" Fabtech spindles in the front and a 2" rear leaf in the back. I swapped out the wheels and now have 16s with 32" tires. The front bumper I ordered new along with the fogs.

I bought the chrome bumper and plastic valance from Pacific Coast Body Parts (Info) and the fogs off ebay.

My truck, stock, had a 2" block under the leafs. I chose to go with a standard 2" leaf from Summit Racing and added that to what was already on it (evened out the truck nicely). It was pretty quick and easy, the only problem I came across was the U-Bolt that holds them all in place was a half inch too short. I ended up getting custom U-Bolts made. You'll have to do this for any rear lift unless my truck is an odd ball.

I think so! That was right after I bought this new one. I ended up selling it to some dude with a camry. That was a sight... watching him twist and turn it into the trunk then back seat and a bit into the front seat.

Nice! Looks good. Yeah, I like the 4wd setup a lot more. How much did you end up getting yours for? New or used?

Yeah, I've been offline for awhile. I bought myself a '90 VW Corrado which has been a complete headache!

Nice! What did you end up doing for a lift?
