Default Shackles and some rain

Went out to clean the interior and snapped a few pics with my phone. Truck hasn't been cleaned in a while but the rain is hiding that. It will get it's much needed wash and wax sometime soon.

Just installed my shackles the other day and the front is next to go up 2 inches. I'll be somewhat double lifted! The rear is also higher due to the new 8.8 under there.

So far I'm more than satisfied with the truck. The 2.3 is running amazing. With the 31s and 410s out back I'm getting like 24mpg. Not too shabby. Anyways, here's the pics

Looking good so far. Have you taken her off the pavement yet to see how well the 2.3 turns those tires on terrain?

Are your leafs sitting so far back (first pic) just because of the shackles? Or are they longer springs?

I am guessing that what you are seeing is the side of the receiver hitch due to the body lift.

I see it I just thought you were seeing the hitch and wondering if the leaf pack went that far back. Judging by the fact that it reduces to a single leaf while still in view it probably ends where the black is.

----------

I am pretty sure the only reason you See that guy right there is bc of the body lift and shackle combo.
