Put my order in!!

I noticed a very large amount of grip, these tires are very sticky, and I do feel the large lugs through the steering wheel.
You can feel the difference in weight under braking, for sure.
I really havn't noticed anything funny while braking with the wheels turned, though I've only had about 30 minutes driving in it sence the lift.
I'll defenatley let you know if something funny comes up.

:salute:

ta Ben, just be careful incase this smart arse was correct, the steering is also supposed to be more direct, with less turn required

Will do, thanks for the heads up

Haha, yeah, it stands out pretty good.
I parked next to a 3rd gen EB today at furtureshop, and was drawing some pretty good attention.
Did have some rubbing issues, gave the front a small bit of trimming, and pulled back the rest with zip ties.
But overall it went really well. :thumbsup:

i know it took forever for u to get the stuff installed so its good to see it worked out... with two inches in front, im always parking next to stock ones and comparing and u can see a good difference... i cant even imagine how much better urs looks... if u happen to park next to a stock one, mind getting a snapshot? even a camera phone will suffice
 






Yeah, no worries, I'll go hunting for a picture tomorrow.
My wife hasn't been out in it yet, and i told her I'd take her for a drive anyway. ;)
 






Truely impressive there RoadBully. It's the difference between "I'm Here" and "Get Your Carcus Out Of My Way". Question. You gave your wheel offset as minus (-) 12. Could that have been (+)12? I'm running the 2001 Ranger wheel at a 12 offset. The stance seems to be the same. I ask because I'm considering after market wheels and after seeing your's....

Again, She looks great.
 












Ok, here they are, I got some next to another 3rd gen, and also at the dealer next to an 06+.

thats a pretty significant height difference... i bet u gained a solid 4 or 5 inches of clearance from the 33s plus the springs... looks pretty damn swell man... makes me wanna give back my 2 inch ones and get some 3s and 2s for front and back
 






I think it's pretty good, not bad for a 500 dollar suspension lift.
I'll snap off some more pics after the body lift.



Ben
 






Those recent pictures are extremely insulting to my currently stock 3rd generation.














BRB spendin' 500$
 






Haha, great! I've been waiting for someone else north of the border to do this. ;)
 












Awesome, now lets see it covered in mud :)
 


















Will do, Gotta wait on the body lift though.
She's a bit tight.
Ordering it on friday, should install in a week or two.



Ben.

I hate those rear tyre carriers, had one my Bronco way back when, noisy squeaky and in the road all the time, good luck, I'm sure they're better 20years on
