Yep , DJM Dream Beams are the way to go up front. In the rear they use a Shackle and Hanger kit. Lower the front 3" and the rear 5. Double check your tire and wheel fitment first and make sure they tuck enough to clear the fender lip. I will be installing the DJM's on the front of Diesel but the rear is going to get linked and bagged.
