Ite so I got my 3 inch spacer kit from PRG last week. And I woke up every morning with it sittin on my bedroom floor.

I came to the conclusion that my lift belongs on a truck not on the floor.

So, by me being a 19 year old kid in college. I busted out the tools.

I have never installed anything major on a truck. I once had a zr2 blazer and i never lifted it. So i thought it was going to be a challenge. But it wasnt!

After watching the step by step on youtube i finished the front. It looks amazing and NO COIL BUCKET NOISE. It is only minor when going over a speedbump at 10 miles per hour plus I would guess...

Now tommorrow I am installing the rear one inch blocks and 1.5 inch shackles.

Anybody have any input on the steps?
Thanks guys

Plus which tires? All terrain Preferibly.

As far as the block and shackle install go they are just as easy. Just need a jack, 2 stands, and i believe a 19 and 21, not positive though. As far as at tires, most will say either bfg at, nitto terra grapplers, or like me, toyo at. Nitto is actually a branch of toyo which is y their tread design is so much alike. Personally, id go with nitto or toyo.

Any difference in handling with this lift?
It should ride pretty much the exact same, probably a little better in the rear when he throws on some aftermarket shocks, andseen as how he lifted the front 3 inches and the rear 2.5 he should have a little less rake to the front which will be slightly better for cornering

prg says you dont need new rear shocks, but after i put mine on, i noticed a little harsher ride out back. when i put the calmini lift on, it came with shocks and it mellowed it out a bit. so if you got the extra cash id get a set of decent longer shocks. they dont need to be muck longer but it should help

Well I only have the front put on thus far, the bolts connecting the shocks to the axel wont break loose so i am going to use an air compressor and tools thursday when I go home from college. As far as the handling/ride. I really cant see a difference anywhere. I am very pleased. I do notice tha coil bucket connection when i look at the spacer from the outside, but when going over bumps I dont hear a noise. According to alot of people I thought it was going to be horrible.

The handleing is fine, no problems. I do need to get an alignment asap when i put my 33's on there. I think I am gonna go with the kuhmo Road Venture KL78's due to the price is extremly wonderful.

Pics will be posted this comin weekend!
