    It seems all you hear about are 3" and 6" lift kits. I was wondering how many people have the 4.5-5" RCD lift beside myself? Post up some pics and let's hear your comments. I love mine. The ride is just about back to a factory ride as compared to my toytec ultimate kit. The wheel travel is awesome and the handling is even better. I don't have any action shots yet, but here are the first few when she came home. Anybody else?

    Can you guys get the longer coilovers from King/ ICON, etc.? Will they work with the RCD?

    According to my paperwork, the kit uses an adjustable 5100 up front. That is why it is a 4"-5" kit.

    Solus is right. I just looked. Yes you can supposedly add king or Icons CO's to this but then you would probably have CV issues again. I think I paid around $1700 for my kit.

    RCD must have made a running change on those front shocks then.

    Solus, after seeing yours I think I am going to sell my N-Fab bars and just go with the factory black Toyota running boards. I think my N-Fabs don't make it look as high.

    Hmm, I don't think it would add anymore lift or affect the CVs but I could be wrong. I'm just thinking of how it will ride offroad. Have you tried yet?

    The press release actually states that the front bilsteins have different settings on them in that kit. But evidently RCD changed the setup without letting us know. Oh well. The Trucks look Great!!
