You may be right.unfortunately I haven’t been able to spend much time with it yet. I’ll be bringing it home in a few weeks once I get everything situated. Honestly the lift would be purely for the look. I don’t plan on doing any serious off roading so was just asking if adding shackles would suffice if I’m not going to off roadIt looks like you already have anti-inversion shackles on the front, are you sure you don't already have some lift already?
What do you want to accomplish with additional lift?
Yes it’s my first , the truck is at a friends farm about 30 minutes away . We have been working on it and just got it running last weekend . I was able to drive it and it was a blast. You’re right I need to do some other things before considering a lift. What are some of the best vendors for parts? It won’t turn over at the moment so I may need to purchase a new starter and it will definitely need new brakes . The reason I was asking about the lift is because the truck sat for a long period of time and the tires have cracks in them. I’ll need to replace them before I start driving it more so I wanted to see what size tires I could put on it like it sits not as opposed to putting some shackles on them ( if they don’t already have them )Is this your first 40 series? There are many things to consider, especially if you haven’t even brought your truck home yet. You need to drive it, learn it, and study it. By the nature of your question it’s appears you aren’t familiar with some of the great vendors here. Your first priorities with a new-to-you truck should be steering and brakes. Period. A lift, especially for looks, should be far, far down that important list.
Lol, I’m not real sure about the story other than I know my uncle purchased it about 10 years ago from someone in South America. He had some work done to it but other than a new heater I’m not what else he had done. We have been working on it every weekend for the last month and was able to get it running after pull starting it. Engine sounds good and was little smoke . As soon as we figure out what it needs to get it started other than drifting or pulling I’ll bring it back to my house and start really figuring out what I want to do with itLol I love how @bkdeuce22 comes in here with the initial question and drops a diesel 45 on us!
Nice truck sir, enjoy it.
Are those not anti inversion shackles on the front? Aftermarket front bumper from what I can see.
I would feel it out, new starters are not too expensive. I went with aftermarket from Rockauto and it was night and day from my old one(plug and play), new unit spins like crazy.
Get it starting and stopping and then look at a lift.
Kurt and his crew @ Cruiser Outfitters are good folks as mentioned.
Care to share the story on the 45?
