Talking Lift is being installed today...

So, I just dropped off the rig at the shop for the 8-inch lift, new wheels, and new tires. The before and after shots will follow...

Don't have the "after" pictures yet. I decided to go with an 8-inch FabTech lift, with 18-inch Fuel D557 Anza wheels, and 38-inch Toyo Open Country M/T tires.

That should look killer.

I just LOVE the look of lifted white trucks.

So, now the wife is complaining that she can't get in and out of the rig because it's too high. All joking aside, are there any good steps out there that drop around 9 inches? I was hoping for those powered steps, but they just don't seem to drop low enough. Any suggestions? Thanx.

I got the bully universal ones. I'm always skeptical about anything that says "universal fit" but they worked perfectly. They use a screw on the top holes into the body, and a bolt through the step and pinch weld strip - I'm pushing 250lbs and they hold me just fine.
