      Very nice man, how does it ride with the superlift and radius arms compared to stock?

      The ride has changed a little bit, but its hard to say with the big lugs on the BFGs cause when you go slow the truck sorta shakes which isnt that bad actually. All in all the ride is a little rough but its not horrible, once you get up to speed it smooths out. Off-road, the front flexs better with the sway bars off (duh) but not as good as the rear, which is because I dont run rear sway bars. I'm very happy with Superlift, but when James Duff comes out with their 6" lift I'm more than likely going to swap out my parts and get all the front axle pivot brackets from JD or I might go SAS...

      The hardest part of the lift were the rivots that hold on the axle pivot brackets. Grind all the rivots down first, then take a few swings and they will pop out. I had to learn that the hard way... try pounding on one flushed rivot for 3 days and getting no where :fire: Besides the rivots it was a pretty simple lift to put on. At least give it a shot, it'll be worth it in the end
