leveled out 6.0 pics

about time i posted up my new updates.

2" BMF leveling kit,35/12.5/18 Nitto trail grappler on stock KR 18's.

install wasn't terrible, once i realize the axle was supposed to shift a ton, i stopped thinking a bunch of 4 letter words and got it done. took about 2 hours with about 1 hour of that just getting the wheels off, the few bolts undone and getting the truck up high enough. had the floor jack fully maxed out with a piece of wood on top, and my 12 ton floor jacks getting close to maxxing out (30" height on them), axle dropped and rested on the floor jack but was just enough.

a trick i learned for getting the spring with spacer back in. make the spring, spring plate and spacer all one unit and slide into place, stick bolt between springs and drop in. you can squeeze the socket in as well as a think torque wrench if you have it. this saves you the trouble of trying to get the spring twisted into position on the spring plate which takes a bit of work.

I used the aluminum spacers from ebay and it was an easy peasy install.

What tires do you have? They look great. I need to buy some new 18's before the snow flies here in MT.
