I think the fullsize owners are surprised when im sitting just about level with them on the roads lol. And people seem to take second looks at the truck now. I definatly think its a noticable lift. The 18th my rims should come in the mail, and ill be mounting GY duratracs, 33x12.50. Cant wait! Lets cross our fingers for the rims coming sooner lol. Anyway, heres how it looks!











And heres a fun one, this is called 'redneck row' lol. I normally dont park here but thought it would be funny since i just got the lift on. Those are two of the bigger trucks in my school, feels good to kinda fit in haha. The orange chevy is sweet as shit too, the blue one is gay if you ask me. Never sees even a dirt road and the kid knows jack shit about it.



Heres some process pics.



well....A process pic haha.
what size tires are you running in these pics?

Def wont look dumb!!!! Those are around 29's!! DO IT!!!

Haha i started on friday around 11 or 12, had to break at 130 for a Dr's appt., got home at 330 ate lunch till 4, worked into the night got up the next day started at around 10 or 11 and finished around 5 or 6. Its not hard just a lengthy process of small things.

Itll look good. Personally id optimally like to see 32x11.50 on it, but 31's would be like the 32's on my truck. It definatly wouldnt have the look mine does where its like oh wow, those look tinnnnny. 33's might actually be too big for a 94 even with 3" BL IIRC

Dang thats not bad at all. Yea after seeing yours with 29s maybe mine would be ok. I think STL has 31s with a body lift and looks good. im seriously debating it after seein ghow good yours looks. only thing i would have to make a brush guard brackets to make it fit right.

He may have 32's. But yeah, mine might convert to 30 inches but when i measure them i only get 29, you know how tire size and "actual" size go. And thanks man, im glad people are saying it looks sweet. I kind of get to taking my truck for granted and since its mine looking at/knowing about all the little imperfections and such. Oh yeah, it was only me and my dad doing it too. So its definatly managable. And shit, being able to say i put on my own lift feels damn good

----------

Its just a taste thing for me. But as you say the 3.0 and gears you have better suit 31s. And plus it wont look bad. Youll have plenty of flex room and a nice a/t or m/t will fill out the wells just fine.

Mine sucks gas too but it is what it is. I dont think ill see too giant of a differance from now to then. And i wish they made like a 32x12.50 cause id have got that, i like the wideness not the tallness so much. But the tallness is cool too. And yeah even though i know the little things, this lift made me fall in love all over again.
