    Patrick has wheeled it, but nothin too crazy.. people swap suspension all the time. It's built to last. For example.. Chas who posted above me swapped his set up into another members truck and it works great.

    For 1600 go with a DB lift.. and forget installation.. we can do it.. :)

    Did you go to desert rat off baseline? Oliver (08pretaco) works there, you can talk to him about what your best option is.

    I'd recommend either Pat's setup.. and save a ton of money.. or get a DB through desert rat. Regardless, DB is gonna be your best bet for your 6"

    Lol. For sure man. Nothin planned really, might even be doin some work on the truck actually. I personally don't like the DB lifts, and try to persuade people out of them, BUT, its their truck and If they want a 6" kit then go or It. It's what makes you happy ya know. who knows, maybe you'll like the 3" on my truck lol

    I still have a bunch of beer from new years.. so I'm in. Maybe we can get Patrick over and check his out!

    Dont have DR install them, listen to the people on here and we can all help install it. Most people here (myself included) have done fully suspension installs. I did mine with the help of some guys on here it it works great. There are a few do it yourself places in Phoenix to do it.

    I would seriously listen to the advice people give on here vice listening to desert rat. They are usually going to sell you there "sponsorsed" kits that have the biggest profit margin on parts and installation for them. Block spacers and AAL's are so cheap for them and they charge a bunch to install them.

    It can wheel, it just can't flex... It might be tall and massive, but what's the fun if it can't move? HEYOOOOO
