ive been thinkin of gettin 2-3" blocks in the back (even yall think i never will) cause im gettin kinda tired of the cali lean..anybody got any pics of 2-3" blocks in the rear with a bodylift?
add-a-leaf pics will do, but i want to keep the stock flex with my blocks

also
after the blocks, i shouldnt re-use the u-bolts, am i right?

AAL > Blocks. Never reuse U-bolts.

i know about axle wrap and stuff, but 3" with 33s aint too much stress
is that the only reason you say AAL?

How much of a cali lean do you have? They way your pictures look, that 3" block will make you have one hell of a texas tilt. I just recently got rid of my cali lean and the texas tilt is a completely different feeling when you're sittin in the driver's seat. I haven't decided which way I like better. But i think the texas tilt looks better

With a 3" block your truck will have a rake like my mower. Go with a 2" block or better yet, an AAL. Blocks suck nuts.

If you use your truck for any kind of work, like pulling trailers or hauling anything in your bed, then the texas tilt is the only way to go. The cali lean is for looks and looks only unless you're running in a baja race or something.

I run baja races every day. Tryin to beat those motor graders to the end of the dirt roads before they resurface them.:crazy: That is why my truck is setting Cali, no other reason. At all.

That's why I said unless you're running in a baja race or something. It's a completely different story if you’re running races than everyone else with a lifted truck. There is no practicality to a cali lean if you use your truck for any kind of work. And if you’re running baja races you’re probably not using your truck for any kind of work.
