I got the truck done last night. All I can say is that RCD lift kit is amazing. The thought that went into each part made is shown by their great fit and finish. The only problem I had was with the brake line rubbing on the tire during full turns which was fixed by reinstalling the stock lines. The 03 caliper looks to have a different mounting hole for the line then the older years. The ride is great. The truck feels more solid. I can feel the smaller bumps a little more then I use to but the coilovers soak up the bigger bumps. I like the ride alot better then with torsion bars.

I brought the truck to the dealer I work at today and got the tire mounted. Haven't driven it on the road yet, so I'll see how those ride. The guys here at the dealer would not believe that they would fit. I don't know why, there is tons of room. I'll post pics in the snapshot area when the weather clears up. The weather station said that it will rain for the next week or so. I'll also write up a review once I get some miles on the kit, but for right now, the kit exceeds my expectations.

If you don't mind me asking, How much do you have wrapped up in just the rcd and tires? I'm trying to get an idea of how much money I'm gonna have to save up.
