And then I decided to lift a bit more. 5-5.5" budget suspension lift.

Of course after lifting it on my DIY POS lift brackets, I had to try them out and they held up beautifully. Aftermath:

I like posting pics so I'll keep this thread updated. I have "real" 4" brackets in the mail and I just picked up some rims with a better offset for $50. Will post a pic soon.

Yes soon! I just picked up some new rear shocks today. My stock ones are completely extended as it sits now.

Since I don't own a welder, I just cut a piece of angle iron and a piece of flat steel for each axle. Drilled 2 holes in them and bolted them up. Kinda like a drop shackle for leafs. It was only supposed to be for a short time until I could find a deal on real brackets. I didn't think I would have found them a week later though. I wouldn't have gone through the trouble.
