New shots of the Limousine with DJM 3/5

Finally got the time to install my DJM 3/5 over the weekend. Most people lift their 3500 CCLB trucks, cause it looks badass for sure. However I wanted to be different with this one and I plan on taking it down the track frequently once I get some more money rolling in, so I decided to do the DJM 3/5 drop.

Originally I was running some belltech 3" shackles and torsion bar bolts run all the way out. I figured that this would be enough to quench my thirst, however it looked WAY too stock still, and I had people asking me if my truck were a 2wd all the time.

Truck is running with both overloads removed in the rear plus one spring on each side as well.. (it's a 1 ton so I have two overloads per side)

So on to the pics!

thanks gents!

Next step is to probably put the spring I pulled out back in since I'm not going to be able to C notch anytime as soon as I would like and I don't want to be breaking axles/frames from riding on bump stops haha

After that it's transmission build time. probably next summer if I can get all my ducks in a row.

Yeah I want to start racing it once I get some more go fast goodies. And that was on my mind, but I haven't had a chance to really go through and think about it too hard yet. We'll have to see.. I just don't know how well it would hold up.

Thanks guys

I went ahead and raised the rear end an inch so I compensated and raised the front as well. Now I'm no longer sitting on the bump stops in the rear (from removing all the extra springs... now I'm rocking every spring minus the overload.. lol oops.. live and learn!)

You can hardly tell the difference though thankfully. If I were C-notched it would be a no brainer to go back that low again, I loved the stance.
