    soo.. just got my 2011 sport 4x4. pretty set on a 6in lift and some 35 x 12.5 with rims. minus the cost of install, any thoughts on which lift. (looking at pro comp stage II). also maybe some small performance upgrades.

    Personally, Id go with king or fox coilovers up front for 3", OME dakars in the back with fox/king resi shocks, new UCA's, sliders, plate bumper, high clearance rear bumper, and a winch.

    But if you're set on 6", the pro comp or fabtec are popular 6"s. with 35's, you should look at regears and a supercharger too :cool:

    I would go with the the Fox deal from DSM. It is about 2000 and it isn't a crappy 6 inch lift.:D

    The gears in your axles. Bigger tires have the effect of lowering the engine rpm for the same speed.

    Unless you regear back to the same relative ratio the truck will be a dog.

    Don't forget the 4wd so the cost of regearing is about 1000.
