Grilles and Lift kits

I was wondering if anyone with chrome bumpers has put on a FX4 grille. Would like to see pics. My truck is white and was thinking about it. Also, I have a 6" lift with 37s and was thinking about going to an 8" lift. Any pros or cons? Anybody done it? Thanks.

I went from a 6" to 8". It involved new front coils, new front shocks, and I ended up going with OUO traction blocks because any more block than what I had with a 6" created significant axle wrap.

What type of 6" lift do you currently have?


As long as it's done properly, no issues with going up 2" in height.

I am currenty running a 6" pro comp stage one lift. I'm also planning on running OUO traction blocks in the rear. I was going to upgrade the shock anyway but didn't know if anything else needed to be replace other than the front coils. I also wanted to put new radius arms on the truck.

By the way jrod, thats a good looking truck. I was also thinking about going up to 38's but my toyos are brand new so it would be a while before I did that. What gearing do you have?

If you are looking for new radius arms, have you seen the One Up Offroad Adjustable Link Arms?
