Okay. Update. Bumpers are ready so it's time to order the lift. I want a 2.5" to 3" lift.

Anyone have an opinion on the pros and cons of the 2.5 v 3" lift?

Learned that my pro-4x sits level. Therefore, I want a kit that raises the front and back an equal distance.

The PRG kit seemed to be complete while the nisstech appears to need to be pieced together.

So what appears to be needed is


4WD PRG Radflo 2.0 Coilovers,
PRG Upper Control Arms w/ new bolt,
urethane bumpstops,
PRG Deaver 2-Leaf Spring Packs
PRG Variable Height Shackles for additional lift
Bilstein 5125 Series Rear Shocks or PRG Radflo Rear Shocks
Cam angle spacers for alignment

With the PrG it says 3" frt lift, but it appears that you give up travel for lift

The nisstech say 1.5" to 2" of lift.

So what is the difference?

On the nisstech lift. I went with this kit as recommended by Chris.

Chris provided the technical exercise and took the time over several phone calls to answer and ask questions, explain technical details to a uneducated consumer and his recommendations where approved by two subject matter experts who have built numerous lifted trucks . . Mud and rock crawling as well as highway oriented 4wds.

complete Radflo 2.0 Extended travel kit with Alcan springs,
Cam Bolts, and Bilstein 2-4"

Went with the heavy duty front springs and custom Sloan rear springs and Chris got it right on the spring rate. It rides trust loaded and unloaded!

The front and rear brake line kit runs an additional $159.00

I just took a 11hr round trip in the newly lifted truck. It rides almost or as well as the factory suspension. This is the hardest to evaluate since my old suspension's rear shocks had gone and I was hitting the bump stops every time I hit a bump.

I cruised at 75-80mph across Texas. No problems with handling. High side winds did push me around today.

I am happy with the lift and everything that Chris suggested.

Schrockworks. Great people great workmanship! They built the bumpers and one of Jim's employees installed both the lift, the bumpers and the winch for a very reasonable price.

The wait has been worth it!

The schrockworks rear bumper. I was worried about The swing away tire carrier: would it squeak? Would it make it hard to access the rear hatch?

The answer is no. No squeaking . . . And the rear hatch is easily accessible. The carrier latch is ingenious.
