Lifted pics

Hey all I just got the truck back last week after getting the 8" lift installed. I have a couple of questions. Since I bought the SCT and got the tunes from DJ when the truck was at stock height with stock rims/tires do I need to get another tune for the different tire size? The leaf springs Outlaw Offroad sent me were missing the overload leaf and possibly another leaf. When I called Outlaw they said that the guys in cali run airbags at 10psi instead of the overload spring to produce a smoother ride. Does this sound right? I am missing the bracket for the airbags that mounts to the frame rail anybody know where I can get these? The lift is done except for the airbags and traction bars these will be done next week when the parts come in. Please excuse the dirty truck I felt the need to test out the 4 wheel drive today.

looks good...maybe its because the truck is on an incline but does it look lower in the rear than in the front?

and about the air bag thing... i guess you could use the bags just dont run them too high or they will ride rough....

did you buy the kit used? the rear shocks look like they have rust on them

The airbags do give you a much better ride and they are adjustable. You don't need either unless you are going to carry a heavy load.

I was told in cali they take out the overload spring and run airbags at 10psi for a softer ride is this acceptable ?

The overload springs dont have any impact on everyday driving. They dont come in to play until you load the truck down enough to make the overload spring contact the pads on the frame. So removing them wouldnt effect your ride.
