Well it all started when my buddy and I had BDS 6" lifts put on our trucks like a month ago. From the start i didn't think my truck look that big. Not to metion his truck sits a little higher (95 f-150) Well this guy I know has an 01 z71 looks ,identical to mine, He's got a 3"BL and 33's and he sits just as high as i do and a little higher in the back.:flame: So I'm going to get a PA body lift. but i wanted to clear some things up. Are the tow hooks still functional? If not do guys have any pic of some ideas or just the bl it self. Are there any mods to the lower fan shroud. Any other surprises I should know about.I help a buddy put one on his obs but not too sure about the nbs

Well, once you do that and you get your tires... It will be bigger. Duh.:insane:

Yea I'm sure larger tires and a little crank would a bigger difference than you think. Plus wheels/tires would defintely help with the stance.

Nice truck though!

dude your friend with a 3" bl is bigger than you because his tires are 2" bigger...tires are the only real thing that make trucks huge. You put on 36's with just that suspension lift and youll gain like 4-5" just off the tires and your ground clearance will be way better... lift + stock tires = jackshit

He's only going to gain about 2 inches from the new tires.

Snap some pictures of your front suspension looking at it from the front of the truck. I bet you could crank a couple of inches up front.

Wickedgmc - MT mtz 375/60R18

01jackedZ - thanx for the complement. I have Nokya Stage II blubs in the low and hi beams

Well I knew from the start I wasn't going to tower over him, My front already sits just as high as my rear I'm afraid that it will look goofy if i crank it. Anyone think different?
