Soo i got the Mcgaughy's kit and completed in the way it should be i got the panhard bar bracket notched so it fits very well ordered custom EVS bump stops to match the rear and i have made my kit adjustable in the front, it is either a 3.25 inch drop or a 2.25 inch drop the Mcgaughys kit sits alittle to level for me so i solved that issue, the only thing i think the truck can benifit from with this kit is either shorter shocks or 24 inch limit straps ( i had straps on mine alot cheaper than belltech shocks ) $300 obo plus shipping heres a pic of the truck with the 3/4 :smileup:

Yup it is kit part number 44052 it comes with the tracbar kit which i had fixed so it actually works the whole is alittle to low youll read alot about it on this forum, and also it rides really well with the stock shocks and on McGaughys website and in the intructions it says to use the stock shocks the only reason i put limiting straps in it is because the rear sway arm end links for the kit are super short to keep the proper geometry and when you lift the truck up and let everything hang they get into kind of a weird angle, if you wanted put shocks in it ne ways the belltech street performance ones or nitro drop 2s would be good im sure but at almost 50 per shock the 20 dollars straps and the cushy ride of my stock shocks sounded great plus the 275/55/20 nittos ride super smooth

I have the same exact Body Style, and with your little modification, this should pretty much be a direct bolt on with no extra modification? Currently I am running factory 20's should I have an issues?

Yup its a fully bolt up kit the only thing you have to do is cut your OEM bump stops out in the rear and you can in the front if desired and install the aftermarket EVS bumpstops im supplying with the kit other than that there is no cutting or drilling required and yes the stock 20s will work just great with 55 or 60 series tires I can do U turns like no ones business and it rides better than stock

Just to confirm , you want to sell the kit that on that truck? also will the bell tech lowering shocks work with that kit?

Il tell ya exactly how i did it i cut exactly one coil out of the left front coil and about 2/3rds of an coil out of the right front because for some reason the right side sits about 1/2 inch lower than the left, and then when ya get that 3/4-1 inch lower the truck sits on the bump stops and i cut the stock bump stops and cups out with a 45 degree angle grinder and bolted in Daystar EVS part #KU09041BK and wella you have a lower stance and a great ride
