    So i contacted Down south motorsports (I highly recommend buying everything from them) and i am ordering my 4 inch RCD lift on monday WOOOT:eek:! while i was talking to them i did ask some questions about getting 6 inches out of the lift using 6 inch coilovers, and they told me

    so eventually when i have the cash i will upgrade to some icon/king/pro-crap 6 inch coil-overs and stuff some 35s with better ground clearance then any of the other drop bracket lifts.

    This is my question when i was ordering i asked them if they could give me a smaller block then the 4 inch one provided along with the AAL, what i want to know is how much lift i want in the rear to fix the rake. I know on Peejays truck its lifted 4 inches front and rear and the rake is still there so i am thinking to fix my rake i need a 23/4 to 3 inches in the rear but idk:confused::confused::confused:.

    You can get different size blocks from 4WP. But I really doubt that the block you get from RCD will be a 4" block.

    RCD is just a ProComp "knock off" lift. They basically copied the Procomp kit. I really wouldn't be surprised if ProComp makes that kit for RCD.

    I see you load 2 bikes in the rear of your truck? The suspension will be too soft for that much weight. You'll need some type of load helper.;)

    Not true. I've had the kit on my truck for almost a year now and i haul a lotta of shizzz. put up to 800 lbs in my bed before and no worries, i also have the 4 leaf pack from the TSB though. I'll measure the bottom of the fender flares to my 33" tires tomorrow.

    I'm going to order the king coilovers with remote resevior from downsouth motorsports for $1475 plus new UCA's. One of their reps said the king coilovers will have a 1.5" lift without even cranking the 2.5 preload spacer on top!!
