definitely get them. They hold all the bracketry and front subframe in the truck and keep it from moving front to back with any big potholes or bumps you may hit on the road or with rocks or anything else offroad. No reason to skimp out

The Cepek kits are offered without them (ie. the Stage I kit). Geoff (Cracker) has the Stage I kit and it has stood up to the beatings he has put it through. I dont think they are completely necessary. If you want them, then get them.

They are like $80 extra... Worth it in my opinion. Hell half the time I forget to charge the customer for them!
Sweet! I will be needing some shocks and steering linkages. If I go through you, will you forget to charge me for those??????:)

I don't have any on my superlift kit.. the fuckers sent me the wrong ones and still never sent me the right ones. So no, they aren't necessary, its just additional support

i don't think the FTS 6.5" kits come with them. There's holes in the subframe to add them though.

The RC 5" kit sounds like a good deal. I saw on RC's site that in order to run the 5" NNBS kit, RC says 18" or larger wheels are required. Do you know the reason for that? I've seen other brands of similar size lift kits that allow 17" wheels on the NNBS. I was hoping to run a set of Pro Comp 17" wheels with 305/65/R17 rubber.
