I have the exact lift, 33's will be fine untill the coils settle. Your going to have to trim.

The coils ride great but they cant take much weight.

well put the new hatch and bumper/covers on this weekend at dads, besides the color youd never know it was in an accident ;)

we had to do some work on the frame to get the hatch to latch and close and all that, but fits like a glove now, doing the lift in a few weeks along with the exhaust, and then i plan on painting it all one solid color, havent decided 100% on what color yet.

now i have to decide on a color after the lift, probably go to that place near howell and get a full color, then just have to find somewhere to do it, if my dad doesnt mind ill take tarps to his garage and do it, simple one color then just clear coat it, then let the trails do the "pinstriping" for me ;) give her some class.
