I haven't posted any pics since I got my 1.5" Zone put on. 35's are ordered, just waiting for them to come in.

Getting ready to go do some fishing tomorrow morning at Kentucky Lake/Lake Barkley (I have a seat open). :tongue: It will be the first time I've towed since the lift, so we'll see how it goes. Hopefully no Stabilitrak problems...etc.

I am not worried about the gears right now. I am worried about Stabilitrak fucking me when I am on the ramp loading/unloading the boat. The ramp is at a pretty good angle. I can't remember who it was, but someone else on here had the same problem.

Edit: I think it was jonyb that had the problem.

18 footer with a 150 that scoots it about 65-70...definitely fast enough for me. Rangers are a dream to fish out of, though. Sit so nice in the water.

are you goin with kuhmos again?

nice fuckin boat!
Negative on the Kuhmos. They aren't all that bad, but just don't need the M/T. Going with the Procomp Xtreme A/Ts it was either that or Toyo M/Ts, but, like I said, I don't really need the M/Ts so I went back to the A/Ts. I love the looks of the Toyos though.

Nice truck man, the 33's don't look too bad on there right now. Is that 7.5" of lift or 5.5" of lift? What are your fender measurements?

I don't know how much lift the Rancho gave me because I forgot to take stock measurements. It is between 5.5 and 7.5, I think. Here's the measurements.

Front - 44 1/2 from ground to fender 28 1/2 from axle to fender. Rear - 45 1/2 from ground to fender and 29 1/2 from axle to fender this is with my 33" tires.

Do you know what a stock 4x4 Z71 runs for measurement, generally?


Thanks for all the compliments gents.
