Re: 2wd lifted, pics. and info.

I actually like that picture becuase he has his bumper and plastics all color matched like me. I have seen a few trucks lifted on xtremes to and they look reallly good. hmmm

Re: 2wd lifted, pics. and info.

Only thing is you would need some wheel spacers with xtremes but I think it would look really good. Would remind me alot of SC's truck

Re: 2wd lifted, pics. and info.

with 33s youll drop under 300 a tank and it will constantly seach for 3rd gear when going up hills because of your gears. with 31s or 32s it wont be as bad

Re: 2wd lifted, pics. and info.

My 33's are not bad but I have the 3.7 not a big difference but I have 3.73 gears

Xkmacx- oh okay that makes sense. Have any idea of what kind of backspacing? I dont like spacers all too much but love the way the red truck looks

Re: 2wd lifted, pics. and info.

yep I have the 3.73s also but I want the 4.10s. Kwon could probably find an axle with 3.73s pretty easy. you'll want the 3.73s atleast.

Might be getting tired of your truck like that, but since the last time I saw your truck it looks 100x better, I bet it will ever be better than it is now lifted haha

Lil Black truck, you sure you want 4.10s? I just made the move from 3.73 to 4.10 in the camaro and all I have to say is damn glad this is a "race car" not my daily. holy smokes

Re: 2wd lifted, pics. and info.

Yea thats always an option. I wouldnt go crazy big. Id like a 2'' with 1.5'' body lift and run 32's. And haha yea it should look good lifted. Might need a set of z71 flairs to look better.

Re: 2wd lifted, pics. and info.

kwon 3.73s would work well with 32s or 31s, check in your glovebox and see if it says you have 3.73s. you may even have the locker also

naval people claim going from stock z71 tires (30?) with 3.73s to 33s with 4.10s keeps you in the same power range as stock. something about small motors really need the help from gear changes to compensate for tire height changes.

I see that but its got to be killer on highway. I mean the truck getting up to speed isnt that bad, just like a honda lol
