    You could always just get one of those steel roll pans and install it, that's the plan for myself if I ever go body lift too

    I believe I'd mount a light bar between the hitch and the bumper to take up the gap. Makes for good reverse lights or just a work light

    2" leveling kit, that is actually now removed. I must not have put it in right, as it felt like I had no shocks installed. Bouncy/springy as hell and over even light bumps I felt like the front wheels would come off the ground and skip/screech on the pavement going faster than about 20 Mph

    The plan was to lift it 2-4 inches then throw some 33's under it. I think the plan now is to just get some more rock/sand capable tires as this will be my hunting rig. Oh and to get the passenger car tires off it...

    A front shot, ignore the sagging bumper. It'll be fixed soon :p

    It's just both of their kits combined, the spindles and springs with a bigger block in the rear. I would imagine the ride would be stiffer up front.

    I hope they did enoghe R&D to prevent the upper control arms from hitting the frame and causing frame damage.

    When I had the 4" spendels (RC) and a 2" spacers (other) .I had problems with alingment to where I needed extended upper control arms. And even then the control arms were bottoming out on the coil bucket on the frame and caused my upper control arm mounts to rip and crack the frame. All 4 of my UCA mounts are welded around the front and sides because of that.

    I have since dropped down to a 1" spacer and have had no problems.

    Just my .02 cents on the subject.

    I'm considering lifting mine back up 2". Using a body lift this time. I can't ever leave it alone. Need to get it in better shape mechanically first but once that happens... I just might do it. :whymewhyme:
