Default 5" Lift Is On!

Finally got my RC 5" lift installed Friday! Looks freaking amazing, besides needing some 35s or a 3" body lift and 38s. Here's the progress:


*In the beginning* "The Grandpa Truck"






*Middle Ways*

Wheel Spacers and the 2.5" HBS Leveling Kit:








*Currently*


















Currently running without a steering stabalizer because the stock one didn't work when he was done putting the lift on for some reason.





-Let me know what you all think!

You can't edit your own post??

Truck looks awful. Especially those tires. You should give it to me, to spare yourself the pain of having it parked in the driveway.....

Wish the body on my truck looked that good......

Yeah fix that damn pix! I see you have the after lift lean or is it my eyes. You might also let the front suspension drop to it' full travel and make sure your brake lines are long enough.

Looks really good and IMO doesn't look funny at all even with the 33's. I would definitely look into replacing that rear brake line with a Skyjacker RBL60 or similar. If you were flexing the other side of the truck I'm pretty sure you'd be at full extension...that's how mine was anyway.

Looks great! Can't wait to have pictures of mine finished and up, but I'm slow! ;o)

Definitely echo what others are saying though - check the brakelines. I've the skyjacker ss line for the rear and even as I'm currently working on the front I'm looking at the lines that are stretched out and thinking... yep... might need to work on those!

If you're looking at upgrading the brake lines have a look at these guys, our 2nd gen trucks are not listed on there site, so call them and they can make up up a set or just the front two. I am very happy with mine, one of my top 10 fav upgrades. Mine are 10" over stock length lines and I paid $145 less tax/shipping and customs fee's.
