Thanks for the help, iam going with the fabtech kit and a 3inch body lift.
my only concern is i cant use my stock rims but i guess ill just have to buy wheels with the tires. I wish i had a 4x4 now, but when i bought the truck my intentions where to bag it on big rims as i have done with all my previous rides, but as a roofer i use my truck for work and then i thought i should lift it some nice tires and some engine mods it would look nice. Nice trucks on here btw



(08XLT4x4 the search feature still works... I think.) , i did search and didnt find the answer i was looking fo

nice truck! yeah i thought they were ripping me off cause i didnt think liftting was as much as laying out a truck till i was looking online and seen how much everything was and i realized they were the cheapest. do u have a b/l?

i just got some money in so iam going to start off with a 3inch b/l since i cant run the fabtech kit without new wheels/tires and i can afford both at once. wich b/l is best for a 08 2wd single cb?
