13.5" lift finished(pics)

Ok so like many of you know I decided to re-vamp my rig by painting the axles and suspension components purple. While I had everything yanked I decided to go a little bigger. It began as a Rough Country 8" 4 link kit. Up front I have a 3.5" upper coil spacer and a 2" lower coil spacer. It has an adjustable trac bar from BD Diesel performance with a new ball joint flipped mod. I should have PMF's one piece drag link here by the end of the week and that will be in too. Rough country stabilizer kit also up front. Moving to the rear it has 10" traction blocks from Newton Lifts. 3.5" flip shackle kit from PMF. Flipped shock brackets. For Performance SCT livewire with deletes and I already had an MBRP cool duals kit but with the shackle flip kit it had to be cut down to over axle dump. Think it looks cooler anyhow. Hope you guys like it. Now I had to notch the transmission bracket to prevent the front drive shaft from coming into contact with it but its temporary. I will be getting PMF index ring and brace and also the sway bar spacers soon also. Stretching a kit this far is never good but talk to Trevor at PMF and he will help you out tons on what your gonna need to make it all work together. Oh and I am also waiting on the Sulastic hangers for my rear leafs to smooth the ride out a little more.

Holy cow, that thing is huge. The purple is a good accent color with the grey

Thanks fellas and fantom I really do think it is higher than a 13.5" lift... It looks more like 14-15 to me but thats what it comes out to... My calculations could be off lol! N
