I'll have to keep my eye on this thread, as that was the setup I was originally going to go with. Good luck!

Minus the addco bar and plus some OME spacers I'm running that same setup. Wish I'd started there rather than ending up there through trial and error. I think I'll be satisfied for a while though, with the suspension at least...

Been a very busy past few weeks and just when I wanted to get started and order the remainder of the lift, my home AC decides to need some attention. Being in Houston and 99-100 th epast few days it took priority and pushed some things back a bit.

But I did manage to install some goodies that are starting to show up.

If you've lifted even with a budget boost, do yourself some justice and install the Addco swaybar and greasable Energy Bushings from Kolak ... its a night and day difference. Here is some Parts Porn to show the comparisons ....

The JKS HD Trackbar is one beefy piece of steel ... very impressive
