The second pic with the Coor Light on the lift is a keeper. Beer+Truck+Work=final product. Without one or the other its just another product. Good looking truck.

I havent lifted the back of my truck, just have air bags, and still my goose neck trailers drag the ground sometimes, even with the tounge all the way up.

Hey its just a hobby shop, and I promise I diddnt open that beer until I was done working. Dad and I are into jeeping so we have the shop to work on them and then I do lifts on the side for friends.

I had 10" added to the tongue of the trailer to make it higher then I lift the adjustible coupler all the way up for my truck and lower it all the wat for my dads truck.

I have 95% of the lift installed right now Im wiring the air system. Then I can get it sitting on the suspension and complete all final adjustments.
