    You can do a leveling kit or 3'' body lift without doing any adjustments. If you do a 6'' lift or more just buy a kit and you'll be fine.

    Edge Evo
    4'' Diamond eye to 6'' tip
    16'' ion alloy, 33'' fierce attitudes
    Lots of work left to do!

    They sell gap guard kits. Pretty cheap and heavy duty black rubber mounts where the gaps would show.

    On my 94 I did a body lift and was nice because it was only 500 bucks for everything and I could do it myself. On this truck I just have a leveling kit and am running 33's so if I ever lift it anymore I'd probably do another body lift. Pretty happy with my old one. Unless they come out with an affordable suspension lift.

    An S10 on 44s???? That's something I gotta see haha. Did the S10 have any issues pushing those big tires with its relatively small engine or did you do a v8 swap? Truck looks good after the accident btw.
