      Well Its Not Really A Kit, I Think The Shop That Is Doing It For Me Is Going To Get Torsion Keys, If Im Correct, For The Front And Make Me Custom Shackles For The Back To Even It Out.

      I dont have any updated pics with the new tires and body lift. But it has a 5" suspension lift, lifted shackles and a 3" body lift. I will have some new pics after MOAB!!!!!I am looking forward to Moab, but these gas prices are getting me worried:eek:

      Sorry the pictures are a bit big. Mine just has a 3" body lift and rear lift shackles. Most of the details are listed below. There are a few others, like front and rear 2" receivers, winch hookups (warn 9000), etc.

      after raising the front, and getting the new tires on...
      [​IMG]

      nothing extreme...this is our DD, and I didn't want to get too carried away, or into changing gears and stuff.
      At least now you can tell it's a 4WD truck!

      Sorry guys here is a pic of mine 3"tt with air shocks in rear at 175psi to give 3"lift in rear. I will be installing a 3" PA bdy lift in two weeks. Future plans include 3.5 inch lift spindles in front along with 3" torsion keys as for the rear custom made 3 inch shackles and an axle flip with blocks to complete. This will be about 12" of lift but when i install the 37" tires i should have close to 16" total[​IMG]

      I just have to know. Has doing the torsion twist hurt anybody's trucks? Early failure of CV Joints, balljoints, tie rods, etc...? I REALLY want to raise mine up a little but I'm worried about screwing up my DD

      Gus Gorilla - If you crank it more than 2" on a 4wd then it will probably wear out your CV's, but if you have a 2wd like mine then you can go up to 3" since there aren't CV's (i heard), but it wouldn't be very smart. I just went 2" and it rides the same.

      Hey John, was that up at Spring Creek? I was up there at General Sam's this afternoon, and hopefully if all goes well with my Silverado, I'll be up there again next weekend.
