Let's see some lifted 80's
 
Hi all,
Everybody else's thread has this, maybe I haven't searched deep into the archives. My 80 has not sold, or brought the price I wanted. So now it's back to working on it.
Let's see some lifted 80's trucks. I wanna do a six or eight. Don't wanna go down the road of body lifting but I won't discourage lift pictures that include that. I figured a 6 and a 3 inch would look pretty decent.

Lets just do specs like Lift, tire size, etc.
I recall seeing a black 80-86 truck that the steering components were painted yellow!? Had some wet dreams about that one. Maybe someone on here owns it!?

Well anyways lets see some PICTURES!!!!

This is a six inch Rough Country lift. On 285/75R16 Mud Terrains. Costs around $600.00 for the lift.

82F100SWB, lol My neighbor does mud bogs and stuff at Denis Anderson's in North Eastern NC, and his truck looks almost exactly like yours, Only diff I see is his has the newer grille. 460?

82F100SWB 11-12-2010 12:06 PM

Yup, mild 460, nothing special, it's primarily a trail truck, no racing with that beast. And, it's street legal... LOL

The truck in my "Album" in my profile has 33" tires on a 4" suspension lift.

Here's some new, better pictures of mine:

It has a shackle flip in the rear, using a stock hangar for the front of the rear spring at the front.
The front is a homebrew shackle reversal using stock front springs from a '00 F250, and stock rear spring shackles.
I'm not sure about the rear suspension height, but the front is 2.75" above a stock F350, with the axle pushed around 3.5" forward, trimmed fenders(to the body line) and a 3" BL all around.

Not sure of the lift size. Looks to me like the guy used the stock blocks in the rear and put on 4" blocks on top of it with stock springs and longer ubolts. Front, the lift is done right. Have it on 38.5x15x16.5 wheels. Could fit 40s easy and 44s with trimming.

No lift. Just sits up nice and high for those big loads they were made to pull and that leaves room for bigger tires. Good looking truck nonetheless

I just put a 2.5" suspension lift on my truck, but don't have the pictures yet. I have to wait to take pictures til the engine is back in, so it is a better representation. Nice looking trucks in here.
