4.5 installed on my baby

Just got back my ride. 4.5" springs up front and blocks in the back, dual shocks up front. I love the way it looks but I HAVE to find some 35s or 36s to go on this thing, just doesnt do it justice lol I do have one major problem with it, no matter how slow i take off it hops in the rear end, unless i just idle out to about 5 mph then accelerate. does a 4.5 inch lift and 285 95s really capable of producing that bad of axle hop????

i only have about 500 miles on them. They are bias so they are noisey. But look sexy in my opinion. I think im going to do some 37" nitto mud grapplers

Did you install a 1" carrier bearing drop? You need to for a 4.5" lift even though the kits don't tell you too. Mine did the same thing with my 4.5" lift until I installed a bearing drop.

Yeah the 36's clear with no rubbing. I might do a 2" shackle when these tires wear out and do the 37's.

My TSL's are 36x13x16 on 16x10 wheels
