Question For RuggedRanger15

Hey man, just saw your pics of your drive with the 33's on your truck. That looks awesome, gives me good images similar to my truck too.. exact same truck, 5 speed and all, except I have a leer cap... but now I want the big beefy tires and a lil extra height to get rid of that ... mini vanish look I've got .. I want 33's but really dont' wanna spend $$ on a susp lift, or even body lift.. I've looked at torsion crank, and a leaf spring lift or blocks in the rear to get a couple inches to fit them in.. What have you got done,a nd how tight a fit is it?? Cheers

EDIT: Just saw a couple other posts by you (RuggedRanger). Just torsion and a shacklelift.. coupel someone explain what shackle lifting involves?? Thanks

the shackle lift uses the Chevy fullsize drop shackles, flipped they lift our trucks 1-2 inches... depending on the amount of drop they are meant to give the Chevy. Belltech 6700's are 1" (i think) and the belltech 6400's are 2".

easiest if you jack up your front end, but if you are strong enough you can do it without, or if you have a long wrench that makes it easier.
