2011 lift choice

Im looking to lift my truck but am at loss on what lift to go with. I will probably never take my truck off road other than maybe some very mild trails around my camp. I was thinking 2.5 to 4 inch with 35s. I want some thing that rides nice on the street and keeps good handling. Im on buget and want to get the best bang for my buck. Any feed back good or bad thanks !!!

On a 2011, any 2.5" system will easily fit 35" tall tires! A 4" system will easily fir 37" tall tires!

Let me know if you have any questions regarding any of our Pure Performance Systems! Good Luck with your build!

If I were getting a leveling system, it would be a Carli. There appears to be quite a few people who say they will never go back to the other manufacturer's kits.

We carry both Carli and ICON, out of the two my personal preference is the ICON kits but you can't go wrong with either kit since they are both top notch quality. Let me know and I can get you a quote on either a 2.5 or a 4.5 kit.

Thanks

I am not going to lie, I almost pooped myself when I saw the valve circuit. I was like is that ours until it rolled to a stop. I have never had a King shock fully apart, but dam, they are similar from a distance. LOL...

All we need is time to get the video stuff up to speed! But we have alot of other things to do first that are just in the way!

Nice video. Someday we will get a chance to get out and play! Even if we roll out in a Jeep or something else, whatever we have on the west coast at the time...
