Default Pic Request: Height comparison standard height vs double lifted 4x4

It is what is says it is, a request for a pic of a double lifted 4x4 on 33s or 35s next to a factory height 4x4 on 31/33s.
Or better yet, a pic someone measuring bumper height and wheel arch height.
The wife wants to see how much bigger Rini is gonna be before she ok's the double lift.

Thanks guys
Mark

She has seen a BL truck, and is okay with it, but I off road quite a bit, like every 4 or 5 days. Anyway, I want to superlift and body lift it. I have the tbars pretty much maxed and she is already asking for nerf bars, so to keep my backside out of the doghouse, I am asking for pics showing how much taller it will be before I just show up with it done. I have a tendency to do stuff like that, and it has burned me before :P

She already accepts that I will never get over 15city so its whatever. Her complaint is that she is 5'2" and already has to climb into the truck. I told her that I could keep a step stool or something in the back, but she gave me that "you're kidding me" look. So I dunno. I like the look of bru's rig, its freaking sweet, but there isnt anything to give a comparison to it. Before and after pics are okay, but side by side really shows it off.

how about a custom retractable ladder step to keep her happy? i bet u could rig it to open when u unlock the truck w the remote

----------

since it sounds like ur not body lifted, get one lift first then see how she feels ya know? or if ur trying to skip it and make sure she doesnt have a chance to hate it on te first step...do them both at the same time

Default re: Pic Request: Height comparison standard height vs double lifted 4x4

The plan is to do a double lift in the spring with tax money. I really want to double lift it and slam some 35s on it, but at the same time, I could do a lot of damage with the 3k its gonna cost to do that. I wish I could find an old rcd 5" kit and be done with it. Im not really sure a BL is gonna work out real well anyway. I beat on it a lot and im not so sure the polymer spacers can handle it. thought about having some custom cut from billet or tool steel.

Tires is what is gonna make up the bulk of the difference. 35" duratracs or MTRs are not cheap by any means, and wheels to go with em. I dunno tho, I really like my factory alloys. Would a double lifted truck look odd with 33's?

----------

Oh, I misread your comment. Yeah, Im for sure on the SL, but the BL is the big iffy part of the deal
