    I want the more aggressive look but don't want to compromise the ride and feel of stock ride, what do y'all suggest? I was looking into pro comp 3" w shocks! I was quoted at $823.00 with instatalltion, after looking around online I noticed the same package is 3-400$ online! What do you guys think?

    I purchased the 2x4 because i live in the valley all flat lands, I don't really haul and will occasionally use to dump or carry work equipment that ibt to heavy, so a 4x4 wasn't really a necessity, that being said since it is a daily driver I don't want to compromise the original ride to much, these trucks handle exceptionally well almost car like suv like, I enjoy that but like I said I don't want to lose that, but I love the lift look and will soon be throwing on done XD wheels, so procomp could just be the way?

    If you like the ride of your truck and you are A 4X2 get spindles with A AAL.. I was kinda skeptical about getting a lift and losing ride quality... But when I put my OME 3" lift, the ride actually was A lot nicer than OEM... IMO...
