This truck has the Performance Accessories kit with a 3" body lift. A set of turn ups from the friendly nieghborhood muffler guy put the tips back in place.

Busy week here. Will get pics of my exhaust tips and post. I haven't gotten them adusted yet. My body lift was much smaller than the 3" PA kit so it isn't as big a gap. I am actually getting the Rancho suspension lift put on my truck soon. It is on order so just waiting for it to come in. Anxiously waiting.

Sweet deal. Are you keeping the body lift on with the Rancho kit? Also what kit did you get?

That laramie looks very nice. Do you have any side shots of the truck. Wanna know how much of the frame shows if any.

Different truck. Same Performance Accessories kit, almost. The PA "PLS600" kit also comes with a spacer for the rear springs to bring it up about an inch and a half. The rear spacer was not used on this truck, the owner wanted the "Cali Prerunner" look.

You don't see the frame under the Dodges with a body lift.

Damn that truck looks good too. It appears to me that both of those trucks look more level then mine. But I feel like the body lift is easy to do and if I want to add shocks and a lift later I can do that and remove the body lift.
