Ben, I can't wait to do the body lift on my '98. These trucks, all 3 gen, look soo good with lift and tires. And I love to see all the guys on the board that use these for more than soccer practice!! Go ExplorerForum!!!

Your truck looks great. Have you done anything to the drive train? What axel do you have in the rear? ( open, LSD, what gears? )

Stock CV's in the rear, and I haven't touched the pumpkin.
So far everything is holding up well with the oversized tires, and she has no problem flinging mud. :thumbsup:

Your truck looks silly man!! WOW.. I am impressed.

More pics though... from the side. That last pic makes it look like the rear is a solid 3" higher than the front.

haha, I'm not sure I want to have a "silly" looking truck, but I'll take some more pics in the morning.

Looks good man, but you need bigger tires now...Just kidding! I like the look of a fuller wheel well and less frame, but it looks good. I'm partial to the pictures with just the 3" springs w/ wheels and tires, but that is just me.

I know that I checked in via pm for the heights after the springs, but what are you looking at for measurements now (looking for step up for getting in the door in particular)? What are your plans for it now?

I like... :thumbsup: But, how am I suppose to keep up with that?:eek: I think now I am truly Mini Me. Have you taken it offroad? Does it handle well, or does it feel less stable?
