lol thanks. I'm thinking about repainting it though.
 












99 xls OHV

Front: 2" TT
Rear: 2" Skyjacker Dodge 1500 add-a-leaf
3" body lift

33x12.50 Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

The dodge add-a-leaf is perfect in my opnion. It lifted it about 2 1/2" and has settled to around 2 1/4" and rides good still, plus no longer shackle hangind down. I still have rub issues in the front when flexed up and turning due to all the plastic flares, but I'm not planing on getting rid of them, just need some more trimming.

Just about the same lift that I have on mine. Yours looks great. What wheels are you running? Width, backspace? I want mine to have the same stance.

I think you may get away with 35's maybe... id just stick with 33's
 






Ya i will prob stick with 33's but 35's would be dope!! and i know -__- i need to save up money for the tires!!
 












I just removed the bolt going through the leafs, removed 1 stock leaf (3rd from the top) and replaced it with the dodge add-a-leaf. I cant say if the other one you linked will do that same because I have no idea.

The add-a-leaf was about twice the thickness and probibly 5 times stiffer than the leaf it replaced. I found a grade 8 bolt that was a little longer to go through the leaf pack to make up for the thickness.
 






Sploder, thanks for the info on your wheels. I was going back and forth between 4" or 3.75" backspace but your truck convinced me, 3.75 they shall be. I love your truck. It sits just right. How do you like your Duratracs? I just ordered a set the same size for mine. I've heard pretty good things, and they look mean enough. Plus in Quebec, where I am, they want us to have the little snowflake mountain symbol on our winter tires. LT's are still allowed but only for a couple more years so I might as well get ahead of the game.
 






I'm in love with the tires so far. I havent had them in major mud yet, but as far as stump jumping and ditch climbing they have been excellent. Low road noise as well!

Any way you could get a few close ups of your leafs? I'm just curious how it looks. And also how is the ride with them??
