Thanks so far all I can tell is the lower control arms are different cast out of aluminum everything else looks the same. My truck came with the XZN code (raised ride height) not sure what that means exactly but it will be lowered ride height when im done...

Hmmmm... that's interesting. Would like to see the control arms.

Raises ride height?!? Can they go any higher with these trucks from the factory? haha


I can imagine you will have it sitting pretty in no time!
