    Let me start by saying that I swapped out kits because "I" had my toytec CO's cranked up pretty high that I kept blowing CV boots. I really enjoyed the kit and would definately reccomend it to others. Once I switched out to the RCD kit now my CV's are parallel to the ground and happy again and I gained about 2" in height. If I hadn't had Baja MTZ's on it and able to hear the road noise you would swear the RCD kit rode like the factory truck if not better. Way to go RCD. This is one hell of a kit. The first few pics are of the CV boots before and after the RCD. Tires are Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ's 285-70-17 on Moto Metal 17x9 955's. The tires don't even come CLOSE to rubbing unlike the Ultimate kit did at full flex. The 285's will definately be swapped out for 295's at a later date. Otherwise everything else is in my signature. Let me know what yall think. Better pics to come.

    I will be interested to hear your first ride report. I think you will be as impressed as I was. No more bouncing around the cab.

    Didn't somebody say wheelers had them for $1700? That's only $100 more than I spent.

    That's still not a bad price compared to other people wanting over $2200.

    Solus, are you getting or do you already have aftermarket UCA's for yours? I have the LR UCA's which always makes the alignment so simple.
