The 10" Cognito is hands down the best IFS lift made, so your covered on having a solid, durable lift. And it looks like he has good taste in looks, so I say go for it, it's a badass looking rig :imo

See if you can find out what gears he has though...

the only thing that bothers me is i would be trading my truck with 50,000 miles for a tahoe with 75,000 miles but i guess if it has been takin care of it shouldnt matter that much

Yours will be MUCH more reliable. 37's on IFS you can expect to be replacing some front end parts :imo Mud Grapplers are rather heavy as well. Also expect 12-15 mpg's max.

yeah he said it gets 15 mpg around town but thats wat im scared of is the big ass tires wearin down parts. i dont have time to be replacing parts all the time i work like 60 to 70 hours a week and i need my ride to be reliable. im just really wanting a lifted truck

It does not get 15mpg's around town. You can be assured of that. The lift being on only 3 weeks does help the situation.

Yea you'll be replacing worn out susp. parts quicker than a non-lifted truck, but not like you'll be doing extremely often. Ive had my truck lifted two years, and just now wearing out the idler/pitman arms. And I could have avoided that with some Cognito chit.

:word: on the 15mpg's...MAYBE 11-12, but a BB tune will fix/help that :thumbsup:

he does NOT get 15 around town. I have a baby lift and 35s. I get 12 around town and maybe 15 on the freeway. I have 4.56s also.

I would be a bit sceptical about 15 mpg around town in its current configuration. No problem with that number when it was stock.

LOL you act likes parts are gonna wear down every other month...as long as it's not cranked a shit load, you'll be fine :imo just expect a little faster wear than you normally would expect

i didnt think it could get 15mpg cause i get 16 on average dropped on 22s. i mean if i only have to replace parts once every year or 2 that would be fine its just kind of a gamble i guess. i got some thinkin to do
