While it looks like you've spent a good bit of money and invested quite a bit of time in this truck, I have a hard time believing there's $20k invested in the suspension on that thing. A set of leaf packs ($500-$1000, depending on who you have 'em made by), HUGE rear blocks ($100), long-arm front kit ($500-1000), track bar & bracket ($350-500), a bunch of fancy tubing on the rear to mount 6 shocks ($$$???), and probably no more than $1k invested in shocks (I didn't pay attention to what kind they are, but I'm guessing nothing along the lines of Bilstein 7100s, Kings or Foxes)...All of that, going with high side guesstimates, is roughly $3600.00 and I'll throw in another $2k for miscellaneous parts (extended brake lines, the tubing on the rear axle housing to mount those shocks, the bracketry for the upper rear shock mounts, the rear traction bars etc.), for a grand total of (ballpark) $6k. Maybe that $20k in suspension you write of impresses some potential buyer, but anybody who's worked on these trucks or is familiar with them can see through that.
I'll let you know what his/her reply is, if I get one. :bigthumb:

Maximum Altitude is known to charge waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much for their work. I know a guy that got a SAS done on a '96 Z71 by them and they charged upwards of $12k, and that was just to clear 44's. (And they did the swap with an 8 lug D44, and kept the stock 6 lug rear :roll: )
