Installed my lift...

Installed 6" Fabtech. Took about 16 hours front and rear. 4 hours to get the pitman arm off, as my puller was the wrong size...

Looks good. I went with the 6in on mine as well. Rides awesome. Let me know how you like the single shock compared to stock.

Looks like a nice kit. Anymore pictures? 16 hours seems like a long time for an install. Hope there were lots of breaks and beer.

Ya it was a long time mostly a pitman snag, and the new brake line brakets were a bit odd. First time installing a lift. Ill post up some more pics wheels and tires should be here friday. Have BMF 20's with 35s went for Fuel Hostage 22's with 37.

That said I have some BMF's and Tires for Sale

I had 22's and 37's on my old combo and it was perfect to compliment my 8" lift (Fabtech 4-link). My wheels were 22x11's and I still rubbed, but I see a lot of guys with 37's running under a 6" lift with no issues. Sounds like a nice combo and waiting to see the final setup, congrats!

Can't wait for pictures. Still confused on doing the 4'' or 6'' lift. I don't want it real high.
