I have both types of frame mounts for the 4-link for either a 99-04 or 05+. The 99-04 would allow you to bolt right up to your frame and works with our indexed crossmember.

If you decided you wanted it, I could even design some bolt on coil buckets. I have alot of the base design files I would need so it wouldnt be too difficult.

Trevor, I'm glad you chimed in. I will send you a PM about the lift and maybe you can fill me in more on what you can offer. I would really like it if I could just keep my stock axle and would be interested in a bolt on coil bucket with integrated double shock hoop. I will try to PM you tomorrow its already 10pm over here. Thanks for your input.

ol_blue97, I live in Central TX but I am currently in Afghanistan until spring time. 1000 sounds like a good deal but too far away from me. I keep looking but I dont think the wife would be willing to go pick it up and the store it in my garage until I get back if I find one. Looks like I will have to wait till I get back. I will have to agree snap on is a little bit too pricey for me too.

First and Foremost THANK YOU FOR SERVING OUR COUNTRY I Can not express the gratitude that I have for you and your fellow service men to protect and serve our Great Nation.

I just did the conversion on mine last year. You don't need a Snap On Air hammer. I used a Harbor Freight Air Hammer. To get the rivets out all you need to do is Score the rivet head with a 4 inch cut off wheel on a grinder. Once you do that the heads just blow right off. You will need a sharp cutting edge on the chisel and a round punch chisel to knock in the rivet. The Key is to score the top of the Rivet with the grinder like an X. Make sure you have some Good Ear protection as its about as loud as a day on the firing range.
Talk to Cary or Trevor about a 4 link as it is worth the money as your ride quality is awesome. I also just relocated my rear spring hangers and am now running the 08 springs which is a HUGE improvement over the lifted Deaver springs that i was running.

Good Luck Dana

Motomez, thanks for your support. I am currently working with Trevor on getting a 4-Link made using new brackets and a custom coil bucket so I dont have to worry with the rivets at all. Hope to give him a call soon to get the ball rolling so I will have all the parts by time I get home. Im on the fence about if I should go with coils or coilovers.

I would say go with the coilovers
