Is it and Edge or an XLT.

If it is an XLT, go with DJM.

If it is a Edge, you are **** out of luck, as no one makes a kit for you. You can flip the rear end, and loosen the bolts on your T-Bars, but that can make for an unstable ride.

It is a 2005 xlt reg. cab short bed. I think djm makes a kit and western chassis. The djm uses a flip kit, but western uses shackle mounts and spring hangers for the rear. Which way/one is best and who has the best prices? Thanks.

Use the DJM kit. They make a 2/3 kit and a 4/5 kit for you.
