Bulletproof, PMF or.....

Plans changed guys... again.


What I am doing now is a 12 inch lift, 40/15.50/22 Toyo Open Country MTs on 22x14 Fuel Offroad Hostages with a -76mm offset.

My question is, What is the best way to get to 12 inches on a the 08+ trucks... Everyone is saying if I go over 10" I will run into Steering problems.

My Options so far are...

12" Bulletproof Suspension Kit with Fox Coilovers.

PMF Custom Built Lift with Coilovers.

or do a 10" fabtech with 2 inch spacers...

Let me know guys. as of now I am doing bulletproof but its $6880!!!

any feedback helps and keeps me from doing something I may regret.

My 2008 is getting the 12 inch pmf lift right now....it uses stock rear leaf springs.This will keep me a factory ride.Basically if you break down the price/quality/function of all three lifts,you will see the pmf is your best buy.Ive already spent months researching.My truck will be done in a couple weeks.I will get pictures,and better details. I had a 10 inch on 40/15.50/22.Need that extra 2 inches to look perfect.I am also getting the transfer case indexed

Sounds good man. I actually have been working with Trevor, but that was on an 8 inch kit. I want to go 12 now. I am going to see what he can do for me. When will you have pics of your truck buddy?

The front is just my old rize 4 link with a 4 inch spacer and 8 inch springs.The draglink/pan hard bar is getting redone to except the additional lift.But if your starting from scratch,I would get the whole kit from pmf.

Yeah I like Trevor, He seems like a great guy. I actually want to go coils and shock instead of coilovers at first, then upgrade later to save a little money.

I also heard that if I go higher than 10" on the 08+ trucks, you get steering issues. How do I get past that...
