  1. The gas milage I'm not 100% sure about yet since I haven't recalibrated but...I can tell a significant difference. The DIC is saying around 13.5 average, for me thats a 50/50 split between city and country on my drive to work and back. I'm guessing once I recalibrate that like most on here i'll be seeing 15ish somewhere or around there. I took a 300 mile trip last week after it was finished and was doing better at highway speed just cruising, the DIC got back up to 16.5-17. Ill post later when I get the tuner and fix everything lol. Over all its not bad though. I went from 1 tank a week to 1 and a half.
  2. Like wildchevys said, it is about 1/2inch high in the front, mine is right at that in the front with my 6inch bds struts and 5inch rear blocks, but the only way you notice that is if you measure. To the naked eye it looks dead level. I'm also very OCD and I can't even tell. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Very nice!! Did you use the add a leafs in the rear, ride glide leaf packs or just leave it stock and add the block? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Took it to the shop, I was planning on doing it myself but with all the cutting and trimming, I decided that I don't trust myself that much haha. I went everyday to check on it so I knew they weren't messing anything up, and man I'm glad I did! Headache free vs doing it myself lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I never thought about thickness of the steps but that makes sense, it would for sure look lower if it was 2 inches thinner than the stock steps. Getting isn't all that big of a deal according to the girlfriend haha, she's 5'6" and doesn't have a problem. I'm 5'11". I wouldn't let that discourage me, it's fun getting up in it haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Just measured, front fender is 44.5inches back fender is 44.75 inches and I have factory steps, the bottom of my steps are 18.25 inches from the ground. Maybe that will help Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I don't have a comparison of the two lifts but the post I just made shows before and after my 6inch BDS. I'll try and get some fender measurements for you when I get back home tonight Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Finally a good sunny day where I can take some pics of my truck finished lol. BDS 6inch with fox shocks in the rear, running 35x12.5x20 Toyo Open Country MT's on Fuel Maverick Machined face 20x9+1 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I'll keep updating on here about my truck, I'm not Someone who trades a lot so I'm building it to last until she blows up haha I wanna do it right not cheap Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I spent over a year researching lift kits for my truck, I felt the same way. It's an expensive truck to put a crap lift on. Everyone has there own opinion on every different lift. Friends of mine who have went with rough country all have problems with squeaking and noises. There will be people on here who have had better experiences with them. That being said I finally went with BDS for quality, an amazing warranty and overall reputation. I wanted to stay away from kits that primarily used spacers, plus you have the option to upgrade to fox coil overs with bds. My angles are all close to factory specs with them also. I can't comment on ride quality or anything long term yet since it's so new but overall I'm very happy with my decision on bds. I'll have pics next week when the weather clears up and I can get some good ones lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. You will have to cut your rear crossmember to make room for the lower control arm drop bracket. if its 2wd you shouldn't have to do much more trimming, but once you cut the crossmember, your committed haha have to finish and live with the lift at that point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks! I like they way its coming together so far, everything has fit perfectly!
