Project Lift the truck way up is COMPLETE!

Stock... great for pavement.

This was because I didn't spend the $100 on lug nuts yet. The ride quality of the lift was far better than stock. You wouldn't believe it.

Then I got my lugs...

Way better. As it sits I got 10" in the front, and 8.5" in the rear from the 8" BDS all spring lift. Then I went from a 32" tire to a 37" tire...

Lift: 8" BDS all spring. $2050 installed. 1 yr labor, lifetime parts. Thank you Alden Automotive (Jeremy). Also got the lugs for $100 from these guys. Great prices for you local guys. Feel free to drop my name.
Wheels: 17x9 ProComp Rockcrawlers. $352. Thank you United Offroad (Matt).
Tires: 37x12.5x17 Super Swamper Radials. $750 (slightly used). Thank you Wolfgang .
Mounting + Balancing of these beasts = $40 Hands On Auto (Mark)... Thanks Guys!

Jack - the truck looks great. How did you finally get the tires balanced up?

with 12oz of lead... lol

I aired them up to about 45psi, and they feel fine, no problems. @ 25psi I had shaking and stuff... but that is all gone now.

Yeah that sounds about right. Interco tires always seem to need a lot of weight and playing with air pressure especially for on road use. Off road who cares??? Just throw them on the wheels and put about 10 psi in them and go!!

Got a little binding in the front shaft, so I'm going to look for a grease fitting on the u-joints hopefully... otherwise I'm going to look for another remedy.

It binds when I lock the hubs... and also when I put it in 4HI. I climbed a little hill in 4LO but I think I was going so slow, it didn't bind. Normal for this much lift?
