any specs on that thing? it looks to have at least a 5 inch spring lift and then some good size spacers on top of that..

It looks cool and might be fun to drive around town but it looks like a truck that has never seen mud.

Here is the link to the website I found it at. There are SiCk trucks these guys build! They are based out of Ohio - and they seem to have it together!

If you would, could Fabtech lift owner/ installers please describe how that lift system corrects the factory trackbar? If it is a simple bolt on part, I can get it through my parts store as we can buy parts for the fabtech kit individually. It would be a lot cheaper than that DT trackbar that is over $300. I know it is adjustable and sounds like a really good product, but that's a lot of money for a big steel rod. That particular part is not listed in our catalog but only a very few are. I know we can get the coil springs, rear add a leafs, and shocks all individually. I really do appreciate the help.

The Fabtech kit comes with a fist sized or so steel bracket that bolts to the old frame attachment point of the trac bar. Then you are supposed to TIG/MIG weld it on. They also include a short reinforcement bar that bolts between the bracket and the cross member.

I blew this off in favor of the DT bar. The factory bar will be short lived with a lift and bigger tires. Heck, mine was dead even before the lift. A factory replacement will cost almost as much. IMHO do it right the first time...

For a good overview of an install of this kit, go to:

And click on "New Kit on the Block" under Technical.

Well, personally I have to say I read that article. It's just a bit off on the install time! Considering that is for someone who has installed those before, it's a 8-9 hour project. Add the fact you and you buddies haven't installed one before, you double that time easily! <IMG SRC="/board/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif">

P.S I love the fact though that I was part of the installation of my lift and that the truck is GREAT with the new suspension!
