I would do the RCX
I have it and love it.
Plus is 1/2"-1" taller than most 6" lift kits. So you'll have an advantage

Nice! But will it be too big for 35s? I like room for articulation but not too much...might look kinda doofy. LOL I want 35-12.50s, nothin bigger than that though.

As long as you do the 6" lift only, it will be perfect!
When you start adding Bilsteins and a body lift, you'll need to start looking at 37's and in my instance 38's now.

But 35" on a 6" lift, is perfect

Thanks man! Thats what I'll do. I checked out your truck also, too frickin sweet!! Did you do the lift yourself or have it done? And did your CAI or exhuast add any power? Power adders will come right after the lift and tires.

Nope, I did not do it myself to my busy work and family schedules. Plus it would probably take me 2-3 times longer....LOL

I didn't notice that much power increase from the CAI or exhaust, but Im sure it did something.

I would say you would get 15hp from both the CAI and Exhaust and those are rough numbers and maybe high.....LOL

But yea, BD has a tune soon to be released in 2 weeks that I pre ordered

Jump on the bandwagon.....LOL

Sounds good to me! I might have to grab that next! And I'll post up some pics once I lift it. I'm trying to sell my Firebird so I can get it sooner..LOL
