    Where'd you buy the lift at and who installed it? I'd like to do it myself if possible!

    +1, save your money and get the ICON 3", far better product and actually improves ride quality, until you actually adjust to 3" then a good bump and highway speeds may rattle your fillings out. But if you stick with 32" tires and not 33's then you wont need to set it where I have mine to avoid any rubbing or the CMC(cab mount chop). And look at it this way, if you're not going to wheel too much then there is no need for you to get the UCA's...

    Don't buy anything from 4wheelSHARTS, chances are you wont even get the right part you ordered the 1st, 2nd or even 3rd try

    you are a lucky one! I've tried ordering from them in the past and had to return items over and over because they would constantly send the wrong freaking parts.
