Try and find a used superlift Brenda. It'll save you a lot of money.

You can get them for even lower than that if you just wait a little while and do some good searching.

Did that include the upgrade drive shaft and all? Who installed yours?

Sometimes on my ranger and sport trac I wished I would have bought a suspension lift instead of body lift. Mainly because I think it would be easier to install, no messing with recievers, exhaust, etc.
But I don't like the drop brackets with the superlift, and people with the RCD kept breaking CV joints, had sagging coils after a few months, etc. Plus you need a new driveshaft which sucks.
I missed the part about installing it, are you guys doing it or having someone else do it? It can be done in a weekend no problem, but a shop will charge big bucks for it. Nothing is hard about it, it is just time consuming. Use lots of ziploc bags and label nuts/bolts by where they came from. Use a torch to heat up the bolts to help get them out, it makes a HUGE difference.
The hitch and exhaust cane be done later, just not too much later, haha.

Oh and for the record I still love my KM2s, and my truck is a daily driver. It doesn't go offroad much at the moment, but for the few times I really needed the traction it is great to have them. No hydroplaning, great on snow and ice (for a mud tire), quiet on the road (again for a mud tire), and very smooth. I have over 15k miles of "spirited" driving and they look almost new still, wearing very well. They do get a little slick in the rain, but generally I have enough weight back there that I'm only spinning tires when I intentionally want to. When winter comes I might consider having the center of the tread siped, it has made a huge difference in winter driving on other mud terrains I've had.

Thanks Brian! After pricing out the SL's and then adding tires plus other stuff I want to do, I'm leaning more towards just doing the BL and dealing with modifying some things. I already want my exhaust rerouted out the sides so as long as I know someone that can help reroute the hitch and my Waag bar, I should be good. Oh, as for the install, I'm hoping my good ole friends will be helping with that since my hubby and myself haven't done one and aren't too familar with lift stuff.

LOL That way everybody realizes that when you do a bodylift you MUST raise everything. And besides Brenda, you're not old.
