I'm awfully good at convincing people Carli is what they want! What is it you're doing with the truck so i can point you in the right direction pertaining to budget and which kit it is for which you're looking? Are you after a 2.5" or 4.5"?

Lastly, steer clear of those wheels. I would recommend no larger than an 18" diameter wheel because anything larger will be a significant reduction in ride quality. ie, the Carli kit will be two steps forward with the wheels being one step back.

I am not going off road on purpose the truck is vanity for me. I will be pulling my off-road vehicles. My concern is having a level ride with the replacement bumper and the 20,000lbs winch. As you probably know that the truck comes with 20" rims. I have had thoughts of removing them and sending them off to get widened also. I honestly don't want to go larger than a 35" tire, but it must keep the tow capacity. I would like to have a plush ride (full springs).

I just had a local guy with a Carli Pintop 2.5 with full leafs borrow my 35's on 18's so he could feel the difference between his factory 20's and 34's. The ride difference was so great that he bought them from me on the spot.

Now I have to get new wheels and tires for my truck.

Anyhow,
If you are dead set on running 22's and spending the coin on a high end kit like that just realize that in the end your truck may ride the same or worse than stock.

Off-Road is way easier to tune for. Most customers complain about the lack of compliance on small, on-road obstacles. If you're going to throw on a large bumper and 20K steel cabled winch, grab a coilover kit as that will allow for height adjust-ability after the bumper is installed. Just because it comes from the factory with 20" wheels doesn't make that the best choice, you're still sacrificing ride quality. I would run an 18 if you're going to go with 35" tires, that's the only thing that will assist with small bump compliance when paired with our systems. As for maintaining load capacity, no problem. Grab a set of full leaf springs and add our long travel airbags and you'll get both the best possible ride and maintain the ability to haul nearly anything.

Good Morning-
The Bumper and 20K winch is already mounted. What height is the system you are recommending. What is the cost im looking at? What about the raduis arms and the radius arm drop bracket. Are there tires and wheels you would recommend? 18" of course.

Sir

Carli does make some great products. If you have any questions on our Pure Performance products for your vehicle let us know. We can valve our Prodigy shocks to roll with your wheel selection so the ride difference is not as great. Obviously, off-road performance would suffer, but in your case, it sounds like it does not matter at all.

The system i am recommending is a 4.5" coilover system. The weight of the bumper and winch will likely cause the front end to sag on a standard coil spring setup (given the additional weight added to the front) but the coilover can be preloaded to bring the front end back up to 4.5" of lift with the weight of the bumper.

The System itself is $5,175.00 and that includes the radius arm drop brackets. The addition of the fabricated radius arms is $1,360.00 to pair with the drop brackets and the last popular upgrade is a set of full progressive leafs for the rear rather than the add-a-packs coming in at $445 to upgrade. All this ships for free if purchased through George @ 8 Lug Truck Gear and the aforementioned is representative of our current pricing on the date posted.

I have been looking at the performance system. I know I may have some sag in the front but the full sping packs will settle from what i have been reading and make things semi level. I have given serious thought to the perfomance system and adding the full spring pack with the back up air bags.
