    So for all you people who dont wanna check out a 23 page build thread :lol: Heres whats been going on with my truck.

    Sold the 22's. Tired of ruining tires and the rough ride.

    Bought 17" chevy wheels with new Falken ZIEX 275/60/17 tires.

    Raised truck up 1" on all 4 corners. They couldnt align it as it was.

    Sold black LED taillights. They just didnt look good IMO with 17" stock wheels.

    Sold small street scene mirrors. Also didnt look right IMO.

    Had my factory mirrors painted pewter to match. I love em!

    Bought 03+ chevy taillights and 3rd brake light. Love those too!

    With the money from the 22's ($1300) I am buying a trutrac with 4.56's for the rear, and 4.56's for the front.

    Whats left to do for new look? Buy an SS tailgate cap and have it painted pewter to match.

    Truck before:

    Definitely liking it better. :thumbs:

    Except for the fact that it looks so much lower than mine, even though we should be within an inch of the same height. :fume: :lol: You got any fender measurements?

    Drivers side:

    Front: 30 3/8"
    Rear: 31"

    Passenger side:

    Front: 30 5/8"
    Rear: 31.5"

    I obviously have the "Chevy Lean" thats for sure. Need to look into that.

    Just so we're clear on our suspension setups:

    Rear:

    removal of 2" block
    2" shackles
    2" hangers
    All leaf springs are intact.
    8* of shims between the axle pad and the overload spring, which lifts the rear about 1/2".

    Front:

    Purple keys
    3" LCA's.

    How tall are those mudders? My tires show to be 30" on the calculator but lemme go out and check em with the tape.

    Yeah the only difference is you have the LCAs, and I'm de-cranked more.

    My measurements are 32 3/4" all the way around, with 1.5" taller tires, so we're actually pretty close suspension wise, you've just got about an inch on me up front. The black on the bottom of mine always has made it look taller. Used to like that, now, not so much. :lol:
