Default body lift is finally done!

woooooo took long enough! tires will be here tomorrow then i have to go get my rims from randy on friday, then mount em friday or sat. wow it was a lot of work but sooooo worth it. i have some left over parts like front tow hooks and fog lights and tow package! not sure what im gonna do with it all... might re install some of it, might sell it. if anyone needs thew stuff holla atcha boy




the ghetto front spare is due to a big ole blow out on the front tire, so untill i get the new tires on im rollin ultra ghetto. here are the pics of the tire, whole sidewall split open!





oh and a before and after picture!



the after pic was taken before the front bumper was lifted and before the tire blew out.

Nice job! And that tire probably wouldn't have blown out if you didn't stick your shoe through it!
