Good god, I wish this kit was available for my 2WD when I had mine... I love the bracketry... But I'm with Zach, that's a super nasty control arm angle... Especially for having stock uppers... I would look at some Doetsch Tech uppers or some Fabtech replacements if it were me.

What do these usually run to buy? Is the ride extremely rough after as if you put coil spacers in or is this alternative a lot nicer to keep the truck feeling stock?

37's on a 2wd?! Even locked and regeared, You must be Insane! Might as well throw a 350 small block in there too!

Nah, he's got a 4L... 4.88's and a expo rear would be awesome in that thing! It's not unheard of on a 2wd...

True, But IMHO 33's are the biggest that should go on a 2wd. Ive seen many like that in town with even 38's, and I just laugh. Better off doing a SAS and find a transfer case.

looks good, but a little too high. i'm not a fan of BLs but i'd take it off until you found some 35"s. there is just too much gap there.

where is that guy who had an 07 or 08 that was similar. black, reg cab, 4 banger then lowered it?
