Lift Progress

Here's a couple pictures the lift shop sent me today. Notice the rusted parts from the factory have been painted.

What kind of paint did you paint the parts with? Did you have the shop do it, or did you do it? I have been up in Illinois for 5 months for work and it has destroyed the undercarriage of my truck. I want to paint it once I leave here.

FYI I like the setup you are going with. I wish they would have had those parts a year ago when I did mine.

The shop painted it for me. I think it was just a flat black from a rattle can. I can ask.

Man that thing looks Great

How is the ride with the setup you are running as good as stock or better?

Does the 4 link help the ride of the truck? I'm new to this and getting ready to do mine so just trying to learn.

The ride is better than stock. I have had the radius arm lifts before and I think the 4-link is the way to go.

Here's a few more pics.

That's good to hear about the 4 link riding better than stock in your opinion.

I'm looking at a few 4.5" lifts and got it narrowed down to 2 companies one uses the 4 link. So still trying to figure it out.

Your truck looks great.
