Not bad numbers. Thanks guys, I'm going 8" 20x12 and 37's. Haven't decided on lift yet. Wheels and tires are ordered. Can you guys tell me pros and cons of 4 link suspension lift over radius arm replacement lift. Thanks.

35's
20x10's
4" lift
3.31's
Was at 17.9 before winter mix and idling. Now I'm at 16.2 mixed. That's doing 75 to 80 on short highway runs. About 55 psi in tires

I honestly would say its personal preference 4 link looks better and is supposed to be perform little better due to better articulation but with a 7k# truck your not rock crawling most of us just daily drive em cuz usually once your over a 4 inch lift its not a tow rig anymore haha Just my .02 go for the Icon 7 inch any stage, a friend of mine has it on his 14 KR on 37s and it rides fantastic with the replacement leaf pack and compression adjustable shocks.

Shooooot there is a huge range in price the stage 1 is just over 2400 and the stage 5 is a little over 8 grand its just what your needs are and how deep your pockets are , if you got 8k to burn get the stage 2 and buy a MPD turbo kit hahaa money well spent . Then your probably looking at another 3k in wheels and tires .
