2010' Homebrew 2wd lift!

Hey guys! I finally got my lift and new tires installed! I went with a 6" Action van lift and 35x12.50 20 Toyo Open Country mud terrains. I had to do a little trimming for the front, but the sliding door opens fine. I know I should have went with 285's or 33's but I got a killer deal on these!

Wow!

That looks sweet!

Do you feel any power loss going to 35". What type of engine do you have?

Thanks!! I feel a huge power loss with the 35's. I have a 5.4l in there, I am going with lower gears and some sort of locker in the future.

After this van..............next time around, I will go with barn doors and a diesel

Re: 2010' Homebrew 2wd lift!

I'm running 33" tall with a 5.4L gas. Installed 4:10 and a Power Lock LSD. The speedo's back to reading correctly and have no problems with power. Walks right up the big hill leaving Bishop heading North.

Love the 20" Bling.

Thanks Lead, your van is one of the reasons I went this route! I will be doing gears and a locker next month! I like the 20's too, just not the $$$ for tires
