Guys, I need advice on what brand of lift to use on my 1997 extended cab 1/2 ton Z71 4X4. I want a 4-6" lift with the ability to run 35" BFG All Terrain T/As on it. It will see no off road use and will be stricktly a daily driver for my wife. Some pics of your trucks with lifts on them would sure be appreciated so I can see the look I am looking for. Thanks.
PS. I would also appreciate any Colorado shops that you recommend to have it installed.
I have seen and read about how a lot of you guys get rid of the IFS and do a SAS. Can I expect trouble with an IFS, and 35" tires? I see Rancho recommends only 33" on their kit while Superlift recommends 35". Your truck looks great BTW.
I ran 38.5" TSL's for a long time and had to replace a few things.. Got the 36" (well 36.8") IROKS now and less stress on the front..Running 35's you should be fine.. I just want to go bigger and badder and worry less out on the trails..
If you want to run 35's and do it right, get a full drop kit like the dick cepek 6.5". Don't crank the t-bars over stock and don't run a wheel wider than 8" or you may get rubbing. Those are what nearly all manufacturers recommend for a 6" lift.
