Got the LIFT on the ol girl!

PICS uPDATE!!Finally put my icon 4.5" lift on that i bought from a fellow member. Probably the easiest lift ive ever installed. IFS f150s...sucks....Jeep JK not too bad....superduty awesome! Only thing i dont know is how to put on the dual steering stab with bilstein shocks. I also didnt know how to get the pan bar or track bar to be what it needs to be. it came off a truck. so i figured it should be already to length. I still have to re-center the steering wheel and do i need to do anything to the driveshafts. I bought some spacers that you can add, but the kits instructions didnt say anything about needing them. Anyway i snapped a few crappy pics. it was stormy and dark in the old shop. Wheels and tires are on the way

Don't rule out DW just yet. You have affecively just changed your whole setup. If it arise , don't use the dual stabilizer to FIX it, because it won't.
