    As for spacer lifts, there are good and bad about them. If you're going wheeling at least 1-2 times a week then spacers may not be for you. But if you're like me and does some off roading 1-2 times a month then a spacer lift will be fine. Some complain about ride quality but my ride quality got better when I installed them...

    Oh ok well it does look good! I'm thinking about putting on a aero turbine muffler on mine. Should I? Pros and cons of them?

    No, safety wise you're fine. I've ridden my truck hard on trails and through rough terrain and have had 0 problems out of it.

    Eh, if you have the right tools it isn't to hard. You might want to talk to somebody else on here that's more experienced on this. My dad did my front end for me while I was at school. It may be easier for you to take it to w wheel and tire ship and have them do it for you.

    When you take the bolts at the top of the shock off. Do not take the center one holding the shock in with the spring intill its compressed. Damage will occur...

    Usually labor charges are 50-70 $ an hour. You could do it yourself just ask for directions from us through it and itll be free and somewhat easy. I just did mine 3 days ago :D
