    Put 3/4 ton axles in it because if you do motor stuff and big tires the stock 10-bolts are gonna go bang.

    im thinking between a 6-8 inch lift maybe a 3 inch body lift

    and nothing to much with the engine other than the regular air filter, exhaust, etc

    you are a fucking worthless piece of shit. do your research before you do something idiotic like 11" of lift.

    let me guess ... you are going to stack 3" lift blocks until you are as high as you want .... might as well bend up some allthread for ubolts you fucking hack.

    Bought mine with lift blocks installed. I am going to pick up some 3" lift springs and a shackle flip.

    Why so much lift? what size tires do you plan on running. You shouldn't need that much lift to clear most tires, theres nothing wrong with trimming the fenders some.

    I've got a 77 K5 that I'm gonna put a 4inch lift on, already have some 35's for it.

    Actually I'm ditching the blocks and going for lift springs with a shackle flip. I can see how you misunderstood though.

    you're welcome.

    stop trying to build a faggot-hauler .... big tires != big lift.

    not that it matters much but I'm getting a 4inch lift off another member of my 4x4 club. 75 for everything. Nothing wrong with it just he went to a 8inch lift and doesn't have room to keep springs just laying around.

    picking them up tomorrow
