Thanks for the info, Did you modify your exhaust at all to get it tuck into the bumper? Thats the only thing holding me back. I plan on doing some exhaust mods in the future so it wont be a huge deal to modify it to fit in the bumper cutouts.

Yup!
I was very anal about things like that....so I t as newfiebullet said. loosen the bolt and tap it so you can tilt it closer to the bumper exhaust cut out and then when ready for the exhaust, get it done then.

Thanks for the pics Andrew. I was kind of figuring it would hard to just tilt the tips up to match the bumper with the full 3" BL. Not 100% sure which route im gonna go yet but it will be a few months probably until I figure something out. Plus gotta save the cash lol That usually helps

If you want more height, I would recommend the 1.25", otherwise you are begging for larger tires which you do not want

Plus a 6" RCX, 2.1 Bilsteins and 1.25" body lift should have your front fenders up at 47.75" approx which is a big truck
Not that your truck is not big already

After about a month of all the parts just sitting around and driving me nuts I finally had the time to put the lift on. My cousin gave me a hand and we put it on in his garage using air tools of course. I have to say I dont think there is anyway it could be done without air. Even my Dewalt corded impact was not enough for some of the cross member bolts and some others.

As others have said the top differential bolts are kind of a bitch to get at. The front one wasnt that bad but the back one was a PITA. I used an 18mm ratchet wrench with about a quarter turn at a time. Overall nothing was actually that difficult just time consuming. We used the 13/16 open ended cut in half for the upper rear shock bolts. We worked for about 5 hours on friday night then finished it up on saturday after about 4.5hrs.

Setup is 6" RCX with Bilsteins at 2.1, 1" TGC rear coil spacer on 36x13.5x20 Irok's on XD Rockstars. Im actually not a fan of the rockstars and I will be switching the Iroks onto the stock chrome 20's this wknd when I go in for an alignment. The Rockstars are going to be for sale if anybody is interested let me know and I will give them a great deal on them. Heres a few pics before and after, Ill get more up after I get some better shots.


The day I brought her home:



Installed horizontal chrome grill:



Debadged:



Before lift:



Midway through:



After:







casper97ta - Do you still plan on selling your Rockstars? Or have you already? PM me if you still have them!
