Thumbs up Before/After pics! 33's w/ T-bar crank. BL comming next week!

Alrite I got my 33's mounted up and put on my truck!! I did my t-bar crank today. I only got about an 1.5" of lift out of it, but it gave me enough room to clear my 33x12.5's! Untill i get my body lift.. Which is getting done in a week. Heres some before and after pics of my truck. (Stock suspension, aprox 1.5" t-bar lift, 33x12.5 Firestone Destination A/t, 15x8 Cragar soft 8's)

BEFORE:


AFTER:



Before I put on my rims and cranked my t-bars I measured from the ground to the bottom of the door well. It came to 20". After i did my t-bar lift and put on my 33's it came to 22". So i got a 2" lift from adding tires. After my 3" body lift it'll sit a total of 5" taller than stock. Sweeeet

I actually don't know if i plan on tinting my windows. I've had 13% on my previous car all the way around and am kinda over the tinting thing.. By me, cops are looking for me. So its jus one more thing to get me pulled over.

now that you mention it....


(though that's 1" BL and 32's, I think it gets the point across. lol)

Here's my buddy's old truck...removed valence, bolted on lightbar w/ lights on his old '03. He's who I got my suspension lift from. (torsion crank and 33x10.50's)


I'll reply to your PM here shortly.
