Nice wheels, and I see you're fond of white trucks lol.

Are you running the 6" superlift?

More pics!

I have been looking all night for some iroc pics mounted with anything other than a rubberband and this was the only pic I have found...

I am thinking about 285/75/16's (a touch smaller than yours) on my first gen with 3 inch bl and a tbar tweak with shackles.
More!

Really got some height with the lift and tires over the stock height (second pic) Looks fantastic!

Do you have any pics of the clearance between the tires and the fender? I am just wondering how much to cut. I have no problems bustin out the die grinder and gettin to work. Maybe a shot from above to see how much the tire sticks out past the fender, if it's not too much trouble?

I am going with a 3 inch bodylift with 3 inch shackles and cranking the t bars up all the way. I should be close to your height. I am going with a 1 inch narrower tire just because I am worried about clearing the frame and whatnot. It will never be taken off road, it's just for looking bigger than anyone else in the parking lot.

I wish I knew how far I can raise the front, the bolts are about 3/4 the way out, so I have 3/4 of the bolt to turn in. I am hoping for 2-2.5" I know everyone says not to crank them any higher than 1 1/2" because it kills the half shafts, but I don't have a front axle in mine so I can eliminate that worry. I need new balljoints and basically everything in the front end anyway, (250,000miles all original) so I figure, I'll lift it and drive it for a year to make sure everything is kosher, then I'll sell it. That was my intention when I bought it from Craigslist last year.

Do you have the lift with the new upper control arms and the indexing keys for the t-bars? That's the only "4" inch lift I know of. If so then I should be able to hit the same height with tbar crank and shackles.

Thanks,
