Does anybody know if 3rd coast is making bigger lifts now. I know they used to offer only up to 12-14 inch kits for the HDs, but these redesigned kits look more like 18"

That looks horrible. Their designers couldn't come up with a better design than an arrow point down with lines in it? (Or roman columns or wtf it is?)

I guess FTS used up all of the other geometric shapes.

the truck has the perfect combo but maybe a different color powdercoat might have made it look just a little bit better...but still odd

Even on stock tires, the differential/subframe/torsion bar x-member aren't any closer to the ground compared to stock. With 40" tires, they're actually 5" further away from the ground.

I can't think of any lift kits that make you loose ground clearance.

All I am saying is if your are leaving the torsion bar x-member and the subframe at stock heights, do you really gain anything. I would be scared to cross over a medium sized hill due to the torsion bar bracket being so low in comparison to the rest of the truck.
