    looks perfectly level, love it! Am still deciding on my 3" lift options, this is definately in the running. How is the ride? Self install?

    I appreciate it guys. I self installed it. It took me about 7 hours total. It was my first lift I've ever done. I did it on base at the auto hobby shop. They have every tool you can imagine.

    I found my lift at Truckadons.com, they have really good prices if you call. I got my complete lift with shipping for $390.00 bucks, with rear shocks as well.

    Its funny you say that. HAHA... The whole time I was driving back to my house, I was just waiting for something to snap or come loose. I really hope I tightened everything. Im going to check over everything tomorrow, after I get the tires. BUT yes, I am very surprised and proud that I did it myself!!!!!
