A few before, during and after shots

Well just thought I would share the results in case some one is on the fence or contemplating a leveling kit and some new rubber. I know I looked at hundreds of pictures before doing it. Glad I did!

Before:






post leveling kit


And with the new shoes






used a 2.5" aluminum spacer and 35" nitto terra grapplers on 18" wheels.
Rides way better with the softer Nittos and I think it looks a little better too!

have you noticed any negative effects as far as bump steer or harsher ride or poor handling with the changed geometry?

No negatives thus far, ride was greatly improved with the bigger softer tires, no bump steer or "tippy" feeling.

Agreed, but I wasn't going to say it as long as he likes them, just not my style. The stance is badass though.

Off topic, but I love your signature. That is amazing, how'd you manage to get a shot like that?

I love the XD Rockstars! Cant wait until I need new tires, so I can get the rims too. It does seem like a lot of people have em though.

Where'd you pick em up, and how much?

My friend actually took that with my iphone haha. I just stabbed it to take off when he took the picture and it got the smoke as I was taking off, the background, what can I say, Santa Barbara California is a beautiful place to be. Thats the ocean off to the left.

Thanks man!
