Lifts always seem weird as advertised. I mean, a 3" lift would get me 35s easily, but a 12" lift looks like 37's are the max... I think for 2800, you could have a company make you the springs custom, and 44's would fit...

Well, the company in my hometown anyway. Springs for a few hundred, exactly how you want, a few drop down brackets online, 4 link arms online (or have someone make them) seems like a better deal

Be wicked to have it on my Gaser. Dont need a 12in for the mud, its only fun if the truck gets down and dirty and into spots you may not make it out of. I dont wanna be one of those guys who has a truck so high they just put put around the whole time.

I'd get a matching front and rear bumper before moving on to a lift.. and maybe a roll bar as well.. 10" is just stupid for a 1500.. you need to re gear it get larger brakes and kiss your tranny good bye! but hey.. to each their own!be sure to post pics

I see.. sounds like a lift would be cool as long as it's not your daily driver lol I would love to have those bumpers too!! Headlights work well.. but I use my hella 500FF's most of the time! I drive to work ar about 3:30am everyday so there are very few (if any) vehicles on the road
