Well, this was a difficult business decision for me, I wanted to sell my truck to buy a new one to bag, but figured there is a bigger market for lifted trucks. Also for the time being, the Chevy recently developed a knock, so this is our offroad toy for now, as well as my daily driver for my 12 mile drive to work.

Did it all with parts I had on the truck already. 2" spacer in the front, and 1" lifting shackle in the back. 315/70/17 mickey Thompson Baja claws on the stock wheels.plasti-diped the wheels and bumpers. Had to remove and put the stock spindles, lower control arms,struts, coils, and leaf springs.

Not sure why the pictures are so blurry, they are clear on my phone....

I saw a guy on F150online do that to his truck too, he dropped it then got bored and lifted it. Looks good! :thumbs:

Yeah, I definitely didn't get bored with it, just made sense to do it. Now we need to sell the Chevy and this truck.

Looking at my bank account today, it was more than I thought...Tires $300 off craigslist, $70 for ball joints, $100 for shocks, $60 to have the tires mounted, Going to be about $60 for an alignment.
