David,
There are many ways to accomplish that. I'd go with rovertym 3 inch springs and fox shox's. But, there a lower cost shocks out there. Thats my opinion. Others might chime in and get there choice. I am sure if you do a search on here you will find several different ways to do it.

Come on - do a search already! Why not look up members' rigs running 35's (since that's what YOU think is most important to you), see what suspension they've decided on, search for tech info on those suspensions, narrow it down to a couple, search for opinions on those and decide - or ask a relevant question then.

If you think all you have to do is tires and suspension you better think again. If you had searched you would already know that.

Than again, if you are a poseur then, yes, all you need is a lift and 35's.

Thankjs Art, I almost posted the same thing!

And I agree, not only looking at what others have done to their 90s but also wheeling your 90 will tell you allot of what you need to know! I see far too many well set up rigs with a drive behind the wheel that has no idea how capable there rig is. A stock defender is way up on the ladder compaired to most other stock to mildly modified rigs. What I'm saying, don't go get a 90, then throw 35s lockers and all kinds of other things on it and wheel it, build it up slow and learn the capabilities of your rig then improve your rig as you find yourself outgrowing it. Otherwise you don't learn to wheel, your rig just plows over everything with the drive doing little more then pointng it where told.

Looking at the bios is hard painful and for me it was fruitless. Much if not almost all that information is waaay out of date etc. Many of those people no longer even own those trucks. All the info is formatted differently, so going through each bio looking for something was a painful experience. Admittedly it was a while ago and I was searching for other stuff to mod.

Um.... Mike havent you heard of that thing called 'instant gratification'? Sheesh, what is the fun of beating the crap out of your truck when you can spend another boatload of money and just walk over things???

It could have been as simple as searching for "35" in the bios forum but NOOOOOOOOOOO!

The admin idiot had to make that too easy and not workable!

Geez!

Come on now!

Well, in fairness to David, you have to be a little more defining in using the search feature. Doing a search of just 35" produced no results which I knew was not correct but I went to the Owners bio section, and did a search on 35* and come up with 30 bio results, most of which were running 35" tires. Took under 6 seconds so I'm not really considering that "painfully hard" but if you define your search correctly, you are more likely to get more focused results.

As for the content of the bios for the people that submitted the info regarding their lift, its right there as they sent it in, some people don't go into details but regardless if the people own the truck or not, its what they were running at the time and still provides info on what they were running (again providing they went into that detail). The formatting of the bios layout are constant for each and every bio, the only difference in them is the information the person choices to send in. If they want to separate out what the mods are into the subgroups you see in some, they did that, otherwise, its just a list like you see in most of the bios.

While I admit I haven't been able to do BIO updates in over a year, I have about 80 pending updates to do, a good portion of those being new bios. Just because a bio hasn't been updated in a while doesn't mean its out of date, but on the other side of that, I cant update a bio if I don't they don't send in the updates.

Chris, Can't you make the owner of the bios post it directly and then edit it at will? Or add to it like a post. Makes your job easier. Essentially:

1. have a new bios owner contact you to start a bio.
2. initialize the post
3. owner adds bio
4. owner is only allowed to edit it - reply to original post

I realize this must be integrated with the bbs software feature but I would bet you can swing it.

And yes, when I realized it a search for 35" produced the results. Done!

Basicly thats what the owner bios are, simply a modified posting template I coded to keep a consistant look and feel for them and to make them part of the sites DB backend. At the moment for a variaty of reasons, letting people maintain their own bio is not feasable yet.
