Talking Parts on order!!!

so i bit the bullet today and finally put off orrdering my parts, got plans to lift my truck with the 6 inch bds lift, 17'' rims and 35'' tires. here is what i have ordered, let me know what you think









once i get my parts and they are installed i'm gonna take my front and rear bumpers off and fab up some pre runner style tube bumpers with skid plates, winch mount and light bar, possible also through on a cargo basket with roof light bar aswell

this is my idea for front bumper


and as far as the roof rack

Not crazy about any of these kits that use a plate to drop the passenger side TTB pivot bracket. Make sure you install a bumpstop for your driverside front axle or you'll punch a hole in the top of your front diff when you compress the suspension.

I had a picture that shows the relationship of the bracket to the diff, I just don't know where it is right now.

not to bust your bubble...but do you plan on regearing at all? and if those are going to be stacked blocks....ive been there done that...and it sucks. Axle wrap up the ying-yang, and i just felt dirty with them...and not to mention not so safe.

Yes....me likey as well. Just a notice on those rims....my brother-in-law bought a set to go with the new extreme mudders he purchased as a package and he had the worst time getting them to balance with the mud tires. He was given another set of rims and it was the same exact thing with the shimmys once again. Tire Kingdom got a set of MT wheels (bead lock style) and the tires were balanced to almost perfection (as much as perfection can be with mud tires, lol). Something with those rims. Could have just got a bad batch of wheels in at the dealer which very seldom happens but he had two sets and that is unusual. Another guy was there the same day with the same problem. He bought the Procomp wheels and 35 inch BFG KO tires as a package deal as well. The guy came back twice with a shimmy issue. Just make sure you drive that truck right away somewhere...don't just go straight home in other words. If you feel anything you don't think should be there take it right back. I had issues before with several dealers when I bought new rims and tires. They make sure you are happy or they loos a customer and money.
