The driveshaft is sold separate with either lift,yes you will need to either buy the SL driveshaft or have yours CVed. The RCD lift you have to get smaller rotors and they are notorious for breaking the side diff bracket when offroading,a gusset will tke care of that.
Don't get me wrong....the RCD is great lift,expensive but you get what you pay for. I rode in a ranger with a RCD lift and it rode better than mine factory. Due to all the extra parts you had to buy and the price I went with the SL.
well the cost isnt a issue, i just dont wanna get screwed over on the price
i just called the guy
superlift sounds like the best deal but i would like the extra height from the rcd, but i guess thats nothing a 1" bl couldnt fix
superlift has the 4" kit, install, driveshaft, alignment, aal (but i may switch to the deavers), and about $2900 is the only price he can give me until tommowrow when he figures everything and can give me a actual price
for the rcd kit he said, they have never had to change to brakes
K. Blakeley, have you have any problems with your superlift? anything i should know about off-roading with it?
also do you have any pictures of it with out the bl?
You can still crank the t-bars..but me I would use the body lift to get as much lift as you want...keep them bars down for a smoother ride...but thats just me..I hate having my bars cranked because it rides so so rough..you could always just crank them a little though. The superlift looks like a great lift..thats what Im going with..as far as backspacing I think everyone is saying between 3.75-4.5. With that much lift and only 33s I dont think you will have ANY prob. with rubbing.
Those pics I posted of my truck was with the full lift and t-bars cranked to level with back...about 3 months later I took the aals out and de-cranked my t-bars level with the rear. Lowered the truck 1 3/4in but it rides better and the CV shaft are strait. Heres some pics I took on how the trucks sits now....
The CV shaft angle before..
After I de-cranked the t-bars..
Striate and true now.
