I take my truck camping all over the western US, been to Utah, OR, CA, AZ, NV. Sometimes drive marginal roads so was looking to beef up my truck just a little for better clearance and handling off the pavement. Also I have a hitch mount bike rack that would drag through the dips sometimes.

First I got some bigger tires (235/75/15) Goodyear Wrangler's. They fit the stock truck, but pretty much filled up the wheel wells.

I cranked the torsion nuts a bit and got about 1 3/4" of front lift out of that.

Then ordered these shackles from 4x4parts
and got 1 1/2" in the back.

I like the rig so much better now. Drives and looks alot more like a truck and less like a pizza delivery vehicle. :)

Looks good.

I got about 2" from the T-bars and then have 2 inch longer shackles from Calmini. 235/65/17s

Went from:

To this

Mostly did this to help with ground clearance and to make it look better.

I love the looks and the truck gets into some pretty hairy places with out much trouble or 4WD.

The ride is quite a bit rougher and can be very jarring on rocky roads.
