FROM THE DRIVER SEAT
This truck definitely turns heads as it cruises down the road, which is exactly what we were looking for. The lift kit maintains the factory suspension geometry, provides a smooth rides, and requires no specialty tools to install. We did have to trim the plastic liner on the inside of the bumper to alleviate rubbing when lock-to-lock. We thought, with the MB Motoring wheels having a +25mm offset and only being 8.5 inches wide, we could rule out any rubbing, but the 34-inch Nittos do rub the bumper edges when the suspension is compressed. But, it's a compromise we're willing to make. The intake and exhaust added 21 RWHP to the 5.7L and counteract the MPG effects of the lift and tires. Our only complaint is a random, high-pitched whine that occurs at cruising speed and comes from the intake. We've tried everything we know of, and that annoying whine won't go away. The time spent working was very minimal and it was simple enough for someone to do in his or her driveway. To say that we are pleased with the results wouldn't cut the mustard. We are ecstatic. Finally, our new truck blues have been cured.
