Just got my RC 4.5" lift done and 35" trail graplers on XD monsters

I installed lift over the weekend. It was a breeze, it took 5.5 hours from start till finish. I went with the 35" Nitto trail grapplers on 20x10 XD series monsters. Truck rides/handles better then it did with stock suspension. Im glad I went with the trail grapplers over the Mud grapplers. I have had several sets of the MGs, and needed a change. There is a slight hum to them, but not bad at all. Discount tire hooked me up with that setup.

Start...stock



RC 4.5 installed

looks real nice! I usually think that 20's look too big but with the black rims I think its looks like the right size.

Thanks guys for the compliments. I wanted to go with the Icon lift, but for $600 for the RC lift I couldnt turn it down. So far Im really happy with purchase.

This was my last truck....8" on 37s....to big to actually use it, thats why I went smaller with this one
