2wd lift???

ive got a 6" on mine... when i bought the truck off a friend of mine it was already on it... seems to work great.... i think its a pro-comp, but im not sure... clears 35's no problem.... i think 6" is the biggest that is out there for an off the shelf kit... you could always add another 3" of body lift... but that wouldnt look to good in my opinion...

2wd lift???

im am happy with it... it is a little bit higher than a stock 4x4... i would say its the same height as a leveled 4x4... im always suprised at how many people are against lifting 2wds (only to see half the lifted 4x4s driving around here missing the front shaft, go figure)... i have found it very nice when towing my tandem... with my old truck the trailer would dig in some steep driveways... with the lift it clears nicely... also for a lifted truck it still gets excellent mileage... anyways if you do decide to go with the lift i think you will enjoy the new view out of the drivers window ...

thanks... your right half the trucks you see dont even run the front shaft but I really like my truck and not ready to trade it I've seen and heard of too many problems with the post03's so I figured a little more ground clearance would be nice we do alot of ridin and camping, I don't really need the 4wd I keep up with my bro's 6.0 4wd wherever we go anyway but some more hieght is gonna be nice.. By the way where are you at in so cal? i'm in so cal too..

I'm stationed in Yuma (but in Iraq now) and we ride our dirtbikes at Glamis, Gordon's Well, and especially Ocotillo Wells. I'd like to get a 2wd lift on mine. I can't stand the nose down look.

Right with ya buddy I don't like the look either... Hey Raul keep us posted on the meet and greet and yes we ride quads too but I ride bikes alot more my quad is a 4x4 we ride mountains and do some huntin mainly I just like to explore and try to find some land where nobody else can go and bring all the drama, that needs to be left in the city.My wife tells me I'm a country boy STUCK in a city boys life, anyway I can't wait to get my truck lifted as long as it's a little higher than a stock 4x4 I will be happy
