    Well I just ordered the 6 inch Fabtech Performance kit with the coilovers and dirt logic rear shocks, after much debate over whether to go with procomp or fabtech, basic or performance. I have some 18x9 Dick Cepek DC-1 Chrome wheels with Kumho 325/65/18 tires to stick under the truck once it's lifted. I know alot of people don't like the drop bracket lifts, and those who do have strong opinions on whether procomp or fabtech is better. The Fabtech looked good to me and the guys I am going to let do the install have done multiple procomps and fabtech, and agree the sturdier of the two is the Fabtech. I thought when I went with the 3 inch lift 2 summers ago I'd be content......I was wrong. LOL Hopefully it'll turn out good!

    I think you should keep your 3" coil overs and use them on the DB to make 9" of lift!! Post pictures!

    Sorry It's taken me so long to put up pictures, but I'm a busy man most days. Heh. Here are some pics of my truck completed now with 6 inch Fabtech Performance system with 325/65/18 Kumho Road Venture ATs on 18x9 Dick Cepek Wheels.

    Nice truck man. Put a wider size tire it'll look meaner.

    They actually stick out further than I thought they would with an 18x9. I think the Kumho AT's non aggressive tread makes them look narrow in pictures, hehe.
