    - Rancho 2.75" quick lift with Skyjacker leaf packs - Rancho 9000xl adjustable shocks - 32" tires - New 16" wheels with "0" off-set - Borla ProXS exhaust - nfab nerd bars - Weather Tech floor mats - Wet Okole seat covers
    Just completed my lift today and I am super happy with the lift and the ride. Next step is tires.

    I really like the Rancho 9000xl shocks because you can adjust them for towing, off-roading or regular use. If they fail, they are backed by a lifetime warranty.

    I thought the group might want to know since the OME twin tube design is so popular with the group. The Rancho 9000xl shocks are a similar design, but can be adjusted. :)

    Mine?

    I put Eibach springs and Billys 5100s set at .85 and 2" AAL w billies out back. Now it feels like it is planted to the ground. No more soft spongy felling.

    I had a friend that traded a 2009 DCSB(all stock) for a 07 GT500 because he said it drove like crap. We hung out at a buddies house to watch football this past weekend(a keg was involved). He had to drive me home. He said "If I knew I could make this suspension feel this good with just the upgrades you did, I would have kept the truck."

    1" Toytec body-lift, K&N filter, coolant by-pass, mesh cotton screen delete, TTBS, WeatherTech in channel visors, 2.5" Rancho full suspension kit, Oil Catch Can, Toyo 285/70 A/T-2's, 21.5" light bar in grill, blacked-out grill, de-badged entire truck; and again, more to come.....
    So how's the lift thus far?? I may be going the Rancho direction myself?? I looked at the Bilstein 6125, or whatever, with 5100's, but wasn't comfortable knowing I would still need diff drop spacers, UCA's and leafs at an extra cost... So are you satisfied with this kit??

    Holy thread revival, batman. I doubt you'll get a response from the OP. They haven't logged on since July 2012.

    I saw that, but figured they might get an email or some sort of notice?? Even so, I received some pretty dumb-ass responses on here, so I may not be here much longer; or at least posts... Oh well, kids will be kids, boys be boys, and men will just carry on...
    Lol!!! Thanks for your response tho!!!

    No issues at all...I have the RS66901R9 lift on my 2013 DCSB. I did add the Toyotech 1/4" spacers up front and I removed the front mud flaps and cut the plastic behind the flaps for more front tire clearance. I run 285/70/17 BFG K2O. I don't do much off-roading, If I had to do the tire combo again, I would go with 275's or 265's if you are going to off road a lot. But I do like the lift a a lot.
