    Brah once I leveled this thing out the ride is so much smoother I guess I'm not diving nose first into bumps now so the rear can actually dissipate a lot of the movement. My qa1's actually can do their job now. Brian said it was that and the street tacos magic he puts in every block lol ha ha ha.

    Yup and the bilsteins helped a lot too. Ur stock shocks up front must be toast!! Lol

    Do you have aftermarket swaybars on your truck? I know you have an X-brace, but I don't recall seeing anything about swaybars.

    I drilled out the rivets where they are going to mount. I have the brackets and everything I need, just need to order it from xii. Ill probably just get the rear for now, hopefully I can still mounts helper bags with the rear sway on. UNless someone is selling a used set of xii sways :)

    i donno those look cheap. I want somthing that will last and i heard good things from reading other threads about these power window and lock systems. Swiss made baby! Plus i hate how universal kits never end up being universal, then its all china made stuff that either doesnt work out of the box or breaks soon after, stuck power window in the rain is not for me. Plus the kit im getting is made for our truck and bolts right into factory location, no modification ;) Oh and these guys actually have a number an dare real people not some chinese guy who doesnt speak english. lol

    Nice truck, I've been tempted to lower mine lately, specially since I will need tires and shocks soon, I just might lower it and replace all that at once.

    Which sway bar kit is that? Is it bolt on, or is any fab required??

    well nvm just saw the post above..

    lol yah im pretty happy with the look after lowering. Oh and the xii is a pain to install as you cna see. Plus you need to get all the parts and remove one frame rivet on each side to mount the factory brackets like an x runner has. I heard hellwig and addco bars are pretty good and they came with everything you need. think you gotta drill one whole in the frame for mounting the end link bracket, but thats a piece of cake and they give you everything you need!

    ***oh and i noticed this morning my drinks arnt spilling over anymore ha ha ha
