  1. Why spend the money on the pricey lifts when you can just buy a Zone Lift (sister company of BDS) for a fraction of the price? All the reviews I've seen on here speak very highly of this lift. Anybody know the big differences between one vs. the other? My truck has the steel control arms, not the aluminum. I really want to lift the truck, but why so much variance in kit pricing? I'd imagine there can't be too many ways to lift a truck, so the parts/materials in each kit are likely very similar right?

  2. Hi all, I've read a few places that lifting your truck could potentially lead to a torque/hp loss and turn your truck into a "dog". Any truth to this? Anybody know how this all works? I mean, I understand that if you put bigger wheels and tires on you'll be making the truck heavier and thereby weighing it down a bit, but are the reported losses of power true? Forgive my ignorance, but does it have anything to do with the air moving under the truck? Why are people reporting power losses after doing suspension lifts?
  3. I'm no expert by any means, but I've heard good things about all those lifts (including Pro Comp). Heard a couple negative grumblings about Rough Country though..
  4. It fits on miiiiiine....my carwash doesn't have a typical track. It has a conveyer...super wide belt too!
  5. Oh man this is gonna be close! Thanks for your input! @bdkR1
  6. Man, I'm ready to put a lift on my truck, but I didn't want to go with FabTech cuz it's like $600 more than the Zone Lift. I can get the Zone for $899 online...the Fab is like $1600 (for the 2WD). That said, I'm not doing it unless I know it can fit in my local carwash. I got a deal there for unlimited washes for $19.99 per month, and I love to keep my baby CLEAN! Over there, the max clearance is 83". The Zone Lift is a 6.5" and not a 6" like the Fab Tech. You think if I put some 35"s on with the 6.5" Zone Lift it'll sit just as high as yours? That would give me 1/2" clearance if my math is right!
  7. gatoroi: $1900 installed for a 6" Fabtech?! Are you serious? My local shop wants $3k!!! Where do you live bro? Must be cheaper living out where you are. These California prices man..
  8. Call me crazy, but couldn't you achieve this same look with a leveling kit? Don't get me wrong, the Camburg "lifted" truck shown in the photo looks great, but it just looks like a truck with a leveling kit on it, not a lift. I could never justify that expense, even with the money to burn. Do you NOT like the way these trucks look with a proper leveling kit on them? They're still beasts, and with that extra $2000 you save, you could go out and buy some wheels! I know, I know, it's your call, your money, etc...I'm just sayin'
  9. My ReadyLift 2.25" leveling kit rides a little stiff; but then again the day I installed it I also had the wheels and tires switched out (from the stock 17's--Tire--265/70/17 to the chrome factory 20's--275/55/20. I've talked to several people about it, and they tell me it's a combination of the two that stiffened my ride up. #1-The billet spacer is HARD. Good for durability, but no "give". 2-Tires went from a 7" sidewall, to a 5.5". The tire shop tells me for a street tire, the largest I can run with the lift is a 275/60/20. Does anyone have any opinions about whether or not that 1/2" thickness to the sidewall will help my ride quality? Dude at the tire shop did. Note: I'm pretty sure I can fit a wider/mudder tire (like a 285 or a 295), but I just don't really want a noisy tire right now. Looking for a street tire that'll give me a softer ride.
  10. Ah yes. Diablo Trinity T-1000 Tuner. Running 91' Octane Tune. Silly post, I should have just done my research to delete the limiter. Sonoma Raceway here I come! Or maybe Stockton...it's closer. Anybody here do the Wednesday night drags? That said, no more street/hwy smashing you guys...I promise! Safety first.
  11. Hi all, Does anyone know about the speed governor on the 2014 Silverado 1500? I have some performance upgrades on my truck and I was on the hwy last night and realized it cut me off at 100. I couldn't accelerate anymore.
