    33x12.50 Tires, 15x8" Rim, 3" EDGE Spindle, 1" Torsion Twist. Bumper and Upper Arms on the way. Still contemplating taking off the eddie bauer fender flares, but it looks like crap without them in the back.

    King$nake - Your Ex looks just like how I want mine. Only difference is my Ex is black. Do you have any sort of body lift, or is it all just from the spindle replacement and TT?

    No body lift here. I went with 3" EDGE spindles, warrior shackles and a TT

    Do you still have stock shocks? Would there be any advantage to aftermarket shocks? Any complications while you lifted your Ex with the mods you listed?

    Nah I threw away the stock shocks. You dont need them for the lift, but I decided to install bilstein shocks while I was lifting it because the stock shocks had 150,000 miles on them. No real complications, pretty straightforward.

    I agree with King$nake, it is a straight forward install. I installed mine within a few hrs. And there is no way to use stosk shocks with this lift, wou have to use 3-5in longer travel shocks.

    With the spindle lift you can use the stock shocks, but I just opted not to. I know of some guys that are running stock shocks on there spindle lift

    I can not see that. I installed my lift when Pro-Comp was still selling them on the market back in 2002, and it came with 3" lift shocks, and I still found no flex travel with the 3" lift shock, the backs always would full extend when hitting road bumps. Finally haad to upgrade to a longer traveling shock.
