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!

Well, I wouldn't kick it out of the driveway for leaking and I don't know about slow - I would think it something was going slower than you than it would feel like a speed bump! <IMG SRC="/board/images/smilies/icon_razz.gif">

The word gawdy comes to mind. Trucks should look clean and proportional. It's like he took every accessory he could find and bolted it on. It's the truck equivalent of Tammy Faye Baker.

Hands down the Fabtech is the nicest lift I have ever owned. I have had it on for about a month now and have no complaints. Will give it its first real workout this Spring in Moab for the safari.

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.

I'm with dented Ram. The DT trackbar is such a sweet product. Do it right the first time and go with this product. It is fully adjustable and my axle is perfectly centered.

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!
