    Look at his signature...it says exactly what he is running. I have seen his truck in person and it is a beast.

    that looks like a pretty sweet truck and pretty capable. thats all i need, i wont do much more than that and all he has is UCAs and coilovers, but i didnt really catch what he did with the rear, could you do deaver leaf springs like the 3 pack? also what is Alcan AALs?

    alcan's are another brand of leaf springs, if you go deaver you get a 10 pack, part # j66, get some longer travel shocks in the rear and that is it.

    I would definately reccommend this kit engage came out with a good kit, in2nite the black taco is the guy i got my coilovers from, that kit would be all you need for the front end.
