    If you do the same lift up front and in the rear, the truck will look like factory, but 2-3" higher.

    2.5 up front, with 1.5 in the rear, it'' be around 1/4 - 1/2" higher in the rear.

    3" up front and 1" in the rear seems to be absolutely level in my experience

    You can remove 1 of the 2 overloads on the Dakars and they will retain the same ride characteristics but be about 1.5-1.75" of lift. Which is a good match for the front if you put some gear/light loads in the back once in a while or while wheeling.

    Thank you for the information. So would you recommend me pulling the trigger on this setup? Compared to the Fox ultimate suspension kit?

    3" in the front, and the deavers, they'll sag out a little bit over time, as long as you can deal with a little rake for the first few thousand miles.

    Dan is right as well, you can alwats pull some leafs

    Okay thanks. I plan on eventually putting on a pelfreybilt rear bumber as well so that should help bring the rear down a little

    That would be a pretty awesome setup with the Kings. I think we have all that in stock at this time as well.

    I would. Only time you would cause any extra strain on the stock UCAs is if you are lifting tires off the ground.

    Pricing is pretty tight, but I'm sure we can work something out. Just give us a call or shoot over an email when you are ready.

    The bumper weighs nearly the same as the factory with a hitch so don't expect that to bring the rear down.
