I just ordered my kpcomponents 6 link. They said it should be here in a week or so. What do I need to do before it gets here. The front is already bagged. And im pretty sure I have all the parts and stuff. I know ill need a notch, but what else. Can I leave the gas tank where it is and order a devious customs one later? Anyone know of a cheap deal on one? Any help would be great. Thanks guys

I would just raise your stock tank while you have the bed off getting the notch put in. A raised stock tank has the same ground clearance as the devious tank, and will cost much less.

Yeah i cant wait. I already have the bags, the fittings and plenty of line. So i think im good on the parts. Just waitin on the 6 link. Yeah i think ill go with raisin the tank if everyone else is doin it and no problems. Do you have to cut the cab when you raise the tank tho. Thats the only part im worried about.

Yeah im with you. How high do you have to raise it. I have heard just an inch. Do you have to cut the cab to make it fit? Someone please explain.

Humm if you went 1" front and back would you still have to notch that crossmember? Also how far did you have to notch it? Half way gone in that spot, all the way gone in that spot or what.
