The lift was pretty straight to install and the directions weren't all that bad as far as directions go. Complete with pictures and step by step directions. Their customer service line was helpful in picking out some nice complementary shocks as well. Took me about 2 hrs to throw on since I didn't have a lift available to me at the time. If anyone has any questions as to the install or how it rides afterwards I would be happy to answer them, I will tell you now though it does ride so much smoother and steers way better.

This is what I started with the day I went to pick her up.

After the wheels but before the lift, got a great deal on wheels and tires from America's Tire Company in Bakersfield, CA on Rosedale Hwy.

This is after the lift and it made quite the difference.

These are the results from my alignment after I put the lift on, someone on here told me they would have to max out one of the adjustments but this wasn't the case with mine. You can see how far out it pushed everything, however the guy doing the alignment said it was pretty straight forward and didn't max out anything.

Rear shock and rear spacer, as you can see I've already been out and had fun with it.

I kept 1 of the original rims and tires to use as a spare.

I'm looking at getting a daystar 2in lift myself and have been looking for a new tire and I think I've found it haha. Nice ride, really like the look.

I really like how it came out. I recently installed the daystar lift and im going to buy new wheels and tires also. I plan on running 265 75r16 with a zero offset, mud terrain tires.this is how it sits now.
31.65" diameter, 10.43" wide tire on a 0 offset rim?
Time for some more trimming and pinch weld Mods.
I don't believe you will be able to flex much if you have to turn...
