Yes indeed... CV's, ball joints, and I are much much much happier! Some more stuff will be done soon (I pick up the glass today and will install tomorrow), so more pics to come.

It's hard for me to tell if the back is lower than the front. Seems that everywhere I try to determine it, there is some sort of grade. I think she is level though. Before the install, my front was just a little higher than the rear, but now I have dropped 1.5" in the front, so I believe she is level now.

No, nothing has been done to the rear. Still have stock leafs, blocks, and shocks...lol... Most likely I will just do something minor (deavers & upgraded shocks) untill I can save up the money to link, cage, & coil the rear. After that, I just roll-cage her and we're off to the 1000, haha!!!

Thats a nice truck!! Im also thinking about that kit but had some question you may be able to answer. The cv are male spline type on the oem one and female type in the kit does the adaptor come in the kit and would the wheel still be in or near the edge of the fender with an oem backspace wheel? Thanks

There is no adapter in the kit and no need for one. The kit's CV's connect right the stock inner axle.

My guess is that yours will stick out a ways beyond the 6" flaired fender unless you have a 0 offset wheel. I agree however with keeping the spacers on the back wheels. I would like to even my front and rear tires out at some point in the future.
Matt, I just checked your build and see what you mean about the 6" fenders. My current setup definitely won't work with those. I really do like the wider stance that I have now, so I just contacted Jason to see if it's not too late to switch my fenders for their 10". Here is a link and pic what it will look like:

Let me know your guys opinions!

No, they are just 1-piece 10" flared fenders.

I say stick with the fenders you have now and take off those wheel spacers. Your bearings and ball joints are gonna thank you.

Well, they would only make your rear stick out as far as mine. My front is pushed out an extra 4.5" from the kit. The spacers in the front will keep you even with the rear. Look back in the thread and you can see what it exactly looks like from my before pics. I defintely liked the look of the wider stance of the spacers even without the kit.

The main reason I bought the spacers was to fill up my wheel wells to the edge of my Bushwacker Extend-A-Fender fender flares. If you open my profile you can see a pic of them. So now that I've done my mod, I have 2 sets of those fender flares for sale (1 set - used silver, 1 set - brand new in box).

Alright, I picked up the glass on Staurday. The came out sick! I did the install of the fenders in my driveway. With a lot of beers and a mess-up or two, I got them installed in a few hours. By the time I finished it was dark so the pics are few. I will post them as soon as I get home from work. The bedsides are going to be a little more work and a little tougher to do, so I will be doing those at the shop, hopefully tomorrow or Wednesday. Pics will follow that install as well.
