    yea i was thinking about that kit on that website you gave. and i would love a 3in body lift so i could put bigger tires. but a few things holding me back, 1. spoke to the guys at the dealership, they said a lift would void my warranty. 2. if i put 33s on my truck, will i be able to store one where the spare goes.
    3. if i did buy the kit online, could i just take all the parts to some garge and have some mechanic put everything on. 4. does the kit online have everything single thing i need for lift or are there other parts needed that i am not aware of. i want to go the easiest and willing to spend a little bit of cash on a decent product.

    yeah if you buy what they advertise as the full kit you get everything except shocks... which is really better so you can decide what shocks you want not one fits all type

    You will need extended shocks if you raise the rear.
