Any idea how much a person could lower the Pro Comp 6 inch to make it more like a 4 inch? Any chance you could post or send some pictures my way of the upper control arm and axle angles? I would assume they are at an angle being Pro Comp doesn't use a true 6 inch cross member drop. 6 inch looks good but not practical for pulling. I know other companies make a 4 inch but they don't offer the powertrain warranty that Pro Comp does. Also, how has the Pro Comp been holding up? Thanks for the help.

You could have it powder coated black or white...I'm thinking of doing that to mine. It's starting to show some diet spots.

If i had my time back i'd go with the BDS, my next truck will have a BDS lift. they also make a 4"

I may end up with a 4" in the future with 33" tires so i can still get my truck inside the garage for the winter months. If i find some 4.10 or 4.56 gears i'll keep the 6" and just use some smaller tires, use the metric system to get 34.6" tall and 11" wide. it should tow good set up like that.

I know a few guys with diesels and 37" tires on an 8" lift and it still tows just as good as stock, with 4.11 gears.

You have to run 18s with the 4in right? Could you run a deeper offset to avoid having to run 18s? I have a 2in Leveling Kit and running 17x9s on 33s, I'm wondering If I can get away with running a 4in Lift with the 17x9s on 33s.

loving the truck, very jeallous! How did you learn how to take apart interior and what piece coincides with which piece, I mean for the most part common sense, but the little more minor pieces. Manual?

Did you use a relay for the lights under the doors? How many amps/watts do they draw in total? I'm going to be installing 14 single leds, 4 each side and 6 in the bed, to turn on when I either open the doors or hit the fob unlock hopefully by using the wire for the puddle lights that is sypposed to be run but the lights are not there. Oo and for the bed lights im going to be using a on-off-on switch so that I can have them just on, off or come on the the fob/door opening.
