Most people swap just for the quality of the lift and ride...it also is a lot tuffer and holds up better...

Hey, so pretty much, looks like you kept your leafs from the twin ibeam setup... I am going to do this to mine. Just looking for a donor 99-02 to do it with. Not only that, but I'm afraid if I do the front I'll have to do the rear as well because the lug pattern is different... Hopefully I can find some with 4:10's like mine so I don't have to spend more money to re-gear it lol
