    Well I decided I didnt want a lifted truck anymore so off came the lift and tires. Much more practical now for plowing and towing heres a couple pics of the before and after and the dogg of course.

    Looks good! What kind of lights do you have under your doors?

    there just regular old running lights I mounted them to a piece of aluminum flat bar first then attached them to the truck made it a little easier to line everything up.

    Nice. Smart idea on mounting them first...easier to work on a bench then on the ground

    Why did the lift bother you? I was considering maybe lifting my front end so I would stop hitting the curb...

    Curious, what kit did you have in? I know a lot of guys who have small kits and like them alot. That also depends on what kinds of plowing you do.

    It was more of a problem pulling trailers my family is in the carnival buisness and alot of our trailers have low hitches on them. I needed a 12 inch drop bar to pull some and even that wasnt enough at times.



    It was a 6" fab tech.

    Remember to drop your plow mount when you raise the truck. Mounting centers must be maintained for proper operation of the plow. Lifting the mount with the truck will cause excessive tripping and poor cleaning.

    I recently removed my lift as well on my GMC 08 sierra 1500. It just screws up my front end, so its all back to stock now.

    Lift kits and work trucks don't mix IMO

    when I bought the truck it was lifted and I had no intention of plowing with it but later thought it would make a good plow rig so I put the plow on it used it for a season and realized I didnt like it. So off came the lift and now I love it the truck is way more useful and will probobly last longer.:salute:
