    I have an 09 DC, SB and egerly want to lift it with 33's. I am wanting to go with the Fabtech 6" Basic system. I am looking more for the looks rather than for off-roading. I use my truck in the city and occasionaly on the highway. I know it's expensive and can't go back once you upgrade. Any one here with 6" lift? How are they? :confused:

    FYI once u upgrade, you can always go downgrade or go back..... but if ur only wanting to run 33's just get a 3inch save the money in the lift and extra gas

    Most of us are running 3" lifts and love them!! But if you want to go for the extra 3"s, go for it!!!:D Just know it limits on where you can drive your truck. Your garage maybe and building parking garages as well.:eek:

    Oh okay. I have PIAA 520's behind my grill and I think they should be good to go on the streets. Hopefully because I use them a lot!!!:devil:
