Hey what's up bud. I have had the cst 4" for about 6 months now and love the quality and ride of it. I will post up a few pics later when I get back home. I have a link in my sig with a short write up and a few crappy pics. I still have the stock tires and wheels right now, doesn't look too bad honestly. If you check out the calendar vote thread in the picture section, I have a few there as well. Lemme know if you have any questions.

Ok so I have several questions, first off do you think you could fit 35s. Where did you get your lift from. How much did you pay, did you put it on yourself and if not, how much did it cost to have it installed? I was thinking I might do the lift then wheels later. just so I can start modding my truck. Wanna get her looking really good. I will take all the help and advice I can get. Thanks and I would love to see pics with the lift.

I ordered my lift from performance lifts . com. I paid somewhere in the $950-$1000 range. That is with the rear 1.5" spacer. I would not get the 1" spacer because you will definitely sit nose high. I am just about dead even with the setup I have. You don't need new shocks front or rear. You could easily fit 35" tires no problem. Me and a buddy put it on in about 4 hours with air tools and standard jacks and stands. If you have ever done any wrenching on a vehicle, you wont have any trouble. I plan on adding the 2" front spacer and the 4" rear in the future. If I were to guess on an install price for a shop, easily $500 and up. But here are a few pics.

Before:



and a few afters:

Man your truck looks good. I wish I had the money right now to do what I wanted with my truck, but I wasn't really financially responsible when I was younger, so im fighting that. But I am so happy to have my truck sitting in my drive. I am hoping that in 6 months that I will start the extreme mods such as a lift and wheels. But for now its just new head lights, bull bar, and grille

That's a good start!! Just realized you had an 08. You should be able to fit 35s in there easier actually, and the rest of the info I gave shouldn't affect anything either. Good luck with the mods man!

Thank you very much for suggesting Performance lifts.com I just visited the site and found everything I needed in one place. Gonna go with the 4" lift spindles with 1" front lift spacers, and 2" back lift block. Even had an option for the extended brake hoses. So happy I will be able to get everything in one place, and be able to add an inch to what I was gonna put on. Might just get this first and sit on the stock wheels, save up some money, and get what I really want later on. Would make the little lady happier too.
