im not trying to stir the pot or open a heated debate on which better, or why; just looking for some useful answers or some insight.
just a brief overview. ive finally gave in to the peer pressure and decided on going drop bracket lol. as some of you may know i have a full icon setup with a dakar leaf pack in the rear. icon 3.5 extended travel coilovers, icon ucas, icon 2.5 smooth body rear shocks, dakar leaf pack w/extra overload leaf. i laid the money down on this setup because i didnt forsee me going higher than this...well things change. it might seem like im backtracking, but in reality i can re-use everything i have right now with the exception of my rear shocks. ive decided on going with the procomp basic kit. since im gonna drop the cash on this expense and i already have the means to. i want to go higher than the projected 6". the truck currently sits at 3.5" in the front and 5" in the rear. could i just use a 3" block in the rear and adjust the coilovers accordingly to get me to my desired height? i dont mind a little rake (ie: 7" front, 8" rear) to help the cv angles to stay at a more neutral angle. i bought the extended brake lines already. is there anything else i would need? my truck goes in on the 29th and im trying to get the small parts i may need before then. sorry so long but any help will be appreciated.
on a side note: i asked this in the 6" thread but got buried quick LOL. i saw a few stompin tacos still with the oem skid plate. i would like to utilize mine, even though its gonna do othing but sit pretty . does the oem skid still bolt up once you go drop bracket or do you have to fab it for it to fit?
