Well I ordered all my new parts over the last few weeks, things are starting to show up now, getting pretty excited. I got the rims and tires, and Nick from NorCal has shipped the lift kit, should have that real soon.

Will be nice to finally be rid of this piece of shit torsion lift, I seriously hate it.

Lift is the Cognito 7-9 non-torsion drop with 6" deavers and dual shock hoops.

Here's a picture of the rims and tires for now, the are Fuel Offroad Octane 18x9 with 35" Toyo Open Country A/Ts, yes... A/Ts I do way to much driving to run mud tires.

Nice man. I really like the choice of wheels you went with....gonna look BA on yur truck.
Might I ask why you hate the torsion lift ? Also, is that just like a leveling kit ? If so, you wanna get rid of it ?

Thanks guys!

jlb444l: I hate the torsion lift because it rides awful, bump steers, wind pushes it around, wears everything out quicker. Its 2" blocks in the back with the bars cranked up. So it's not leveled.

Man this wait is killing me... shipping companies are so slow, they need to tune their diesels so I can get my shit faster.
