I believe I have made a decision on lift. I think I'm gonna go with a 2.5" rough country level, mostly because it's only 250 bucks. But it also levels the front and back, so I don't have to worry about the hideous "Cali Lean". If I get this I will be able to fit 33s. Any thoughts?

sound like the perfect combo enough to ditch the rake and fit a little extra rubber, but leaves the right amount of practicality IMO.

Yeah if when the time comes I have enough, I will go with a 6" lift and 35s, but for now I don't think that money will come before I have a tire blowout haha. I'm running on racing slicks

I dont know if you mentioned it... are you 2wd or 4? if your 2wd, I think 33's and a 2.5" level will look perfect, if 4wd, I'd try something in between 33-35. you can fir t35's with a 2.5" level on 4wd but the wheel well looks a little too filled for my personal tastes

If you are thinking 33s, definitely go with the 2.5". Otherwise, the 4-6" lift would be better with 35s and a gear swap.

Got my cb in, but still got to wire it into the fuse box, but that's a lot different than in my 98 lol.

I was trying to wire up the radio and dropped a fuse. Anyone know if a 5 amp fuse can be replaced by a 7.5 or 3? I don't have an extra 5 amp one

so they will all fit but obviously a 5 amp fuse is put in the place where a 5 amp fuse is necessary, because over 5 amp would be too much for the wires or the device. now in an ideal situation, these devices should never pull more than they need, they are there in case something goes wrong. I wouldn't put a different rated fuse in but if you had to, a lower rated fuse would be my first choice (and likely blow) and a higher rated fuse would be if i needed it to go to the parts store to buy a new one.

I'll probably just wait and get another. I think I have some but there not at the house. And do you know which fuse is the ignition?
