sorry if i missed it(and i'm too lazy to go back and read) but how much total lift did you end up with in the front? I love the way you did the front fenders to clear the 37s. I'm planning a tear down and expedition type build on my 93 and would like to be able to clear 37s at flex without insane amounts of lift, preferably 4-5".

did you do any work to the inner fenderwell for clearance?

ok, i went back and read a bit. I see you went with 5" lift springs and about 3/4" of lift from the longer shackles. so ~5.75" overall. so that answers that questions. have you had it at full lock/full flex to see if it rubs at all?

sorry for all the questions, this is just the only truck i know of on here running 37s. cheers, justin.

So sorry for the delayed response! Yes you are correct on the lift size, but after the SEMA show I noticed the truck was sagging in the front end compared to the rear. Im guessing the weight of the 12 valve? So I had BDS ship me a set of front "add-a-leafs" and now it is PERFECT! So it is now close to 7-8" lift, just hard to say because of the sag in the front springs. It did rub a little before and now it doesn't seem to at all. The truck just came out in Street Truck magazine also, I will try to post up some pictures in the next few days.

Thanks! It's been my daily driver now for 6 months! It's a little rough ridding but a blast to drive. I just drove it from riverside California to Arizona and got 18.5mpg running 37".
