I'd get the RCD kit. Well, I was actually looking at getting that same kit so, um, cough, go with any option other than #3. Just kidding. Good luck with the RCD if that's what you end up getting. If not, I'll be looking to snag it!

The RCD kit runs a 12"X2.5"ID coil. Kit shipped with a 600# coil but most people run a heavier coil to maintain a level stance.

You should enjoy it. In my experience RCD trucks ride much smoother than stock. I am not sure what the ride is like on 800# coils though. The other cool thing about the RCD kit is that your approach, departure and breakover angles are greatly improved. Lastly, I always ran my kit with the front sway bar attached. I hear that the kit offroads even better with atleast one of the sway bar struts removed.

Glad to see that interest level is still high! Whoever gets it should be happy. I am not playing favorites, just going in the order of the pm responses. That being said Ford'sFORD was first through the gate.

I completely understand and that's totally fair. I'm not trying to over-step anyone. I'm still interested and I'll be watching to see how things turn out.

after several talks with Matt (Quasi242) and seeing his install, i too opt'd for the Dixon Bros LT kit. so, i am no longer first in line to take up his great deal for his RCD kit w/ 3 sets of coils. check with him to see if it's still available. you just can't beat that price!!!

GREAT!!! I'm glad Matt's getting it sold, since he waited out on me for a few weeks. He should have never mentioned his DBR kit to me, LOL...

Haha, I know! His truck looks awesome with it! I'm gonna start w/RCD and see where it goes from there. My truck sees more highway time than off-road time where I live right now so I think the RCD is perfect for what I'm doing. If I get really into some crazy stuff, I'll probably do a SAS but that would be WAAAAYYY in the future.

It's all good. I am glad that everyone is happy. In my opinion, both setups are good. They just serve different purposes.
