I finally got my beloved 2008 set up and looking the way I want it to this weekend. Apparently, the last retard with an air impact at the tire shop over-torqued one of the lugs and stripped one of my rear wheel studs. I had to drill it out and replace it. Not a big deal, but just reinforces the reason why I do all my own work (if I have the tools required).

It consists of:

Nisstec Extended Travel Ultimate suspension lift kit:
- Radflo 2.0 extended travel coilovers
- 550lb Eibach springs
- SPC upper control arms
- clearanced coil buckets to avoid any possible ball joint contact
- OEM lower control arm alignment cam bolts
- rear add-a-leaf
- Bilstein shocks in rear

4x4 Parts 2" body lift

18" KMC Addict wheels with 1.25" B.O.R.A. wheel spacers

LT285/65R18 Nitto Trail Grappler M/Ts

I am checking into getting color-matched silver Line-X sprayed onto the front bumper molding, fender flares, and rocker panels to cover the 8 years worth of road rash...then I will be done....for now!

Looks excellent. What are your thoughts on the Nisstec lift kit? I've been looking at that same one.
The Nisstec lift has been great but keep in is just third-party components that Nisstec packages together and sells as a lift; i.e., Radflo coilovers, SPC control arms, Bilstein shocks, etc. Extremely easy to install. I did it by myself with air tools in half a day.

Looks great! Did you use gap guards for your BL?
I didn't use gap guards. In fact, I don't have any front fender liners currently either. I've been running without them for a couple weeks now. Just waiting to find time to install the new ones I bought - the old ones were getting ratty and ripped.

I have never had anything in the can see clear through under the bed above the rear tires. Never really bothered me and no one has ever commented on it.

I do want to replace all the body lift hardware with grade 8 stuff though. The hardware 4x4parts sends with their lift kits is garbage and rusts horribly.
