    I got this installed 2 weeks ago, gonna post a little about it cuz it doesn't seem like many people have this or know about it.

    I think this is it:

    Some people have said that it's stiffer than the stock shocks, which I guess it is, but I think that's fine cuz at least it means it's stable. I also don't know what any other suspension lift feels like, so I don't know how it compares. That being said, I love the way it looks and feels so far, haven't taken it off the road or anything yet though.

    Yeah I guess I'll put some pictures up soon. You could probably tell what it looks like just by looking at the picture of the kit.

    that looks like a pretty cool lift kit, better then any pos spacer lift... i wonder if those shocks are any better then bilsteins or ome?

    They're pro-comp shocks, and they're moderatly priced, so it's unlikely that they're better than bilsteins or OME. More likely, they're comparable to the stocks, or maybe the TRDs, but in the longer length to go with the suspension lift.

    I gave serious consideration to that kit. Keep us up on how it drives, especially once you get it dirty!

    i used to run this lift, and imho i hated it. from the moment i put it on, i regretted it. i did get it when it first came out, so they may have changed something and made it perform better.

    Loving it so far, only thing is the rear leaf springs creak a lot, but I hear that this is inevitable so I guess it doesn't really bother me that much.

    it was just more than rough. i understand that lifting a trucks gonna make it ride a little more firm. and im ok with that seeing as how its a truck not a sportscar. but mine was extra rough. every little bump, pot hole, difference in the roads surface was magnified 100 times when i put that lift on. i felt that the spring was so stiff it would slam everything down if one of the front wheels were to come off the ground.
