my bad. im known for doing that lol ... but ya lifted 33 super swampers or somting along those lines.. a buddy of mine has a 87 lifted, jasper crate motor, and its a good all around truck a lil wore out at the moment.. im gonna start off with the basics but now that i have 2 trucks i dont have to worry about one beein down

Well your 89 is basically the same as his 87, for clearance reasons. So if he clears 33s you can get the same amount of lift has him. If you're not affraid to cut metal you could fit them pretty much stock on a different set of rims.

no problems cutting anything lol. already cut inner metal fender to match up the rad support and fenders.
