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
I would expect atleast a year...probably a lot longer than that though...:imo

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
ive just always been a lowered guy and now i want a lifted truck i know the basics of the parts and stuff i just dont really know about the extra maintenance of a lifted truck if there is any or wat i need to watch out for

BJs, pitman/idler, wheel bearings, CVs(not that likely to break if it's a mall crawler) plus if you do break a CV you can get one with a liftetime warranty for around $75...keep the alignment good so you don't wear out those mud manglers :crazy:

EDIT: rotate and balance also

Thats a badass mamajama. I would def go for it. Like others have said, you won't be replacing parts on it every couple months. More like 1-2+ years, if that. If you are going to romp the hell out of it, of course all that changes. Good luck with the deal, I think you will love the change of altitude/looks.

The front lift on that does not look like cognito imo. the front shocks are too long to belong to a knuckle lift. just how it looks to me
That doesn't look like a Cognito kit to me, unless its one of the older full drop ones, which it most likely isn't since he just put it on. The shocks look too long, and the corner of the front subframe that you can see doens't look like a Cognito crossmember.
good idea lol


whiptrash IMO

so if its not a cognito is this thing still worth it? im gona bring it up to him though
I'd be more worried that the guy lied to you about what the truck had on it. From what i've heard, whiplash is a lift to stay away from. someone else can chime in with a little insight as to why.
