It looks like I should be able to fit the tires I want without much lift, mostly just trimming and making sure I get spacing right. I might have 1/2-3/4" lift at most.
I'd be interested in removing the blocks that go between the crossmembers and chassis so that I can get a bit more ground clearance. I understand that it isn't a ton, but if I want to drive over a certain size rock I'll have a lower center of gravity without the body lift than with. My impression from other forums is that there are spacers for the engine crossmember, for the tranny crossmember, and for the rear subframe. There's also a mount for the driveshaft that might need to be played with.
Is this right? Has anyone here removed it? How long did it take you? I live in California so no real rust.
Thanks for any help.
