Add me to the... Lifted '08 Club!!

Picked her up from the shop Friday and looks awesome! I'm really pleased with how it turned out Haven't had it long enough to calculate the mpg impact... but long enough to determine the looks and thumbs-up increase. It's the Fabtech 8" Radius Arm kit, Dual Steering-Stabilizer, 37" Toyo MTs, and 20" KMC Rockstars. Adding traction bars in a few weeks. There is a slight shudder from initial take-off but not too bad (Anyone else have this issue??). Other than that... still has the power to spin em' and drives great. A brake upgrade wouldn't hurt though. Ok ok the pics:

I think the shudder is coming from the drive shaft angle.

the slight shutter is from your rear drive shaft not being aligned right... do you have a 1 piece or 2 piece drive shaft? also how many of the shims in the kit did they put under the carrier bearing if its a 2 piece

Nice I'll ask the shop and have them add the shims when I take it in for the install check-up in 2 weeks. Thanks for the info bud!
