Well I finally have done it fellas. I got the body lift from Tex Lurch in on Thursday just as was promised (great seller) and I put it on today with the help of 2 friends. Thanks Stephen (in one of the pictures below) and Jonathan because they helped a done and it wouldn't have been done with out them. It took us a little over 7 hours to get it all done, but about 80% of that was the gap guards, bumper brackets, and such. I can not believe that I wasn’t going to do the body lift y self and I am so glad that I have friend who are mechanically inclined. The truck clears my 35’s pretty easy if you ask me and I am not sure what tire combo I am going to go with now. I did it with the PA body kit and it worked and went together greatly. Well enough rambling here are the pics that you all want.
P.S. I will get better pics tomorrow when it is bright and sunny and nerf bars will be coming in the future to take care of that frame showing.

Looks good man, Its always a surprise what a mere 3 inches can do for a truck. I think if your crank the tortion bars a inch and a half or so and get some 2 inch blocks in the back its look really bad. Just my 2 pennies. But really, looks great and keep it up. BTW, how do you like your L5's?? My cousin works for kicker and got me a really awsome deal on some and now i just need to get them put in. How do they sound?

Tha's my boy blue truck in the picture, but it used to be my truck before I sold it in order to get my Z.

Thanks for the compliments.

The L5's beat down pretty damn hard man. I really really like them and they can take some power. I feed mine about 500 a piece and listen to them wide open about 90% of the time i am in the truck and they still sound clean and tight everyday. I'd go for them man.

dude it looks damn good, a slight torsion crank and some 1.5 inch blocks would make it look freakin awesome. i wouldn't turn my torsion bars up much though, from what i hear it isn't too good and it rides like a bitch <--- i know from experience!

I am not sure on the tire and wheel combo yet to be honest. I was thinking 35's on 15x8 or 33's on 15x10's but I am not sure. I might try to get some 35s on 15x10 to fit with some trimming but I doubt I am going to go that far with it. Maybe just some wide 33's.

why would you want to cram a tire under there like that? It just doesnt make sence to me, best off sticking with 33s IMO.

Well I already have 35's under there on the stock rims and they cleared fine with just a tb crank before the bodylift. So I am having a hard time justifing a 3" lift in order to run tires that are 2" shorter.

Well I believe I have decided on the rims. I am going to go with some Centerline Hellcats in 15x10. I just wish that I could find them in chrome, but I found them brand new for 515 to my door so that isn't bad at all.
