please post pics of 6" or 8" Lifts

I am ready to buy a lift and debating between 6" lift with 37's or the 8" with 37's. I am thinking if i go with 6 i will then want 8. So if you have a lifted truck with 37 inch tires i would love to see them to help make my decision. I will probably be going with the Pro Comp stage 1 system.

Thanks

depening on price diff.....if you got the extra $$$, always go bigger. I didnt and got a 6" lift and 37" toyos.....fits great and looks good, but no options for 40" tires!

I got some new pics on my camera, might get em off there and on to my macbook tomorrow or somin if you want more pics....got one of how steep my ramps are for my stuntbike! haha


btw.......my FabTech Basic 6" kit was DIRT CHEAP for $840 shipped from 4wheelparts.com and I had good luck getting it in relatively quick and all that.

my buddy's Fabtech 8" and 37's rides really rough compared to my blocks.....I know its the more expensive way, and better for towing and stuff, but I love how mine rides, with everything but the axle wrap
