    welcome to tw. that lift would be a good lift for you......................unless you plan on adding some weight to the front, then i'd opt for the toytec lift with stiffer coils. and since you have 4x4................dont forget about the front diff drop too................good idea to have and they arent expensive.

    Thanks for the fast response. Any realignment issues that you know of? Ideas on performance off road, Im satisfied with the trucks performance in stock form (except of course ground clearance) off road. Will this retain the little bit of "flex" the truck has or am I gonna lose a little.

    Thanks again!

    i dont really forsee any realignment issues......but anytime you mess with suspension, at least get the alignment checked to make sure its within specs. you may lose a bit of flex....but i seriously doubt you'd be able to tell........you may lose none at all.

    Hey,
    Darrick here.
    Yap, that is a great lift. To answer your questions, your ride is going to be nicer than a spacer lift with this kit. But not quite as comfortable as this up front, but they do cost a bit more. Both kits will allow for easy alignment. With the light duty springs, your ride will continue to be nice and soft.
