It's my father in laws truck. He told me to find him a lift but still fit under the toy hauler.

So i went with a
6.5" FTS Full drop kit
Hiem Steering
Tubular upper control arms w/ uni balls
Front shock hoops
8 chrome fox shocks (bling bling)
rear axle dual shock kit
idler arm support brace

We are going to go with 33x11.5x17 toyo MT's.

Just got the kit today from FTS. Taking it to the powdercoater tomorrow and we are going to put it on next weekend. I'll take a lot of pics. Here's the pics i took today.

I don't know? They don't have many kits that are raw. The lift was like 1300.

We are going to put slam bags in the rear.
should be sick when its all said and done, what color are you powdercoating everything?
Not sure yet, going to be a candy though. Either red, green, orange, blue, yellow. He wants something bright.

IIRC FTS switched their 6.5" Kit to knuckle, so this must be a used/out of production kit no?

PC it a color that could/might help tie it in to the trailer he wants to tow.
:word:

Gonna look sweet even though I hate duallys. Whats he going to run for wheels/tires?

They have both still. Frank is pushing the spindle lift though. We got this so the front shocks will be a little longer instead of the real short shocks. And i like how the full drop looks compared to the spindle.

Planning on running the 295/70/17 toyo's. 33x11.5x17

We got the same kit as dizzle has. It's the weld on shock mounts to the axle and crossmember that goes on the top in the frame rails. 35's will probably be too big. We are from cen cal, we like small tires. Plus we don't know if it will fit under the toy hauler. We already have a 3" block w/ the kit, and if the tires are 4" bigger that is going to raise it another 2".
