    How do you like the lift kit? Decent ride? I want my truck setup like yours at some point. How much lift do you have overall?

    Honestly, it’s stiff, reminds me of riding around in my grandfathers 65 stepside. But it’s able to haul pretty much what ever I want with no squat or sag. Had 1200 lbs of scrap steel and it sat level.

    The kit I bought was made for the extra cabs and double cabs so it came out right at 3” and hasn’t changed much since, I expected it to settle but it really hasn’t.

    Doesn't look quite "stock" to me. Look for a spacer lift just above the front struts, as well as wheel spacers, unless those wheels have hella low offset.

    Old Man Emu lifts are the best bang for your buck. 600lb coil springs in front and Dakars in back with the nitro chargers are what I run on my reg cab and it's a great combo for a moderate and functional lift. If you don't plan on taking it off road much, then just leave it as is.

    Yeah, that doesn't look stock. It already looks lifted in the front so check your cv angles, you probably don't want to go any higher. See if you can post a picture of the coil/shock area to see if there are spacers or coils have been replaced. Your truck looks similar to mine and mine was already lifted 4" up front when I got it and I brought it back down to 3" because of severe cv angles. Mine also has an add-a-leaf in the back. Here's mine when it was at 4".

    And then after I brought it back down to 3". It rides a lot better at 3".

    You write out how you did this anywhere? I know you need the bracket and the console. Anything else to note?

    The headliner in AC/DC has more of a hump in the headliner in that area than the RC does - might require spacer of sorts between console and headliner if gap.............I took easy way out and just bought compass/temp/autodim/maplight/homelink mirror to sidestep all that ovh modding. Homelink and or having hidden spot for garage door opener like in base model ovh was my angle.

    Yep.
    I haven't. One of these days I'll start up another build thread.

    It wasn't easy but it helped that I had all the parts from my 05 AC, including the temp sensor, and both complete wire harnesses. It required required some hours on TIS to get it work correctly.

    The mechanical side wasn't bad. Measure, a lot, and locate the bracket. Take more measurements and locate the console on the headliner. Cut a big hole in your headliner. Lining it up correctly was probably the hardest part - my final cut was 1/2 off and I had to get creative to fill the gap on the front side.
