  1. There might be a few connections missing in your stock wiring. Reach out to pgamboa that dude has the wiring on these trucks figured out, and can possibly even hook you up with the correct harness to make your new mirrors work correctly (and look like it came that way from the factory) Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  2. I used MVI Inc for my upgrade, just Google them and their website is easy to find. They weren't cheap though. If I were going to do it again, I think I'd contact th3magpi3 and see what he has going on. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  3. Just to pitch in I'm running 305/40/22 on a 4/6 drop, and I rub on big bumps and when turning. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  4. It took me about 2 days, but I wasn't pushing real hard to get done, taking lots of breaks etc. You could probably do it in one long day if you stay on task and don't mess around. Shops that do these regularly and are familiar with what they're doing can easily get it done inside a regular business day. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  5. It was a pita for sure. I removed the passenger side spring, and just dropped the rear of the driver's side spring. After that just a lot of cussing and wiggling to get the axle on top of the spring. I'm not sure which was worse, removing the rear spring hangers, or relocating the axle lol.

  6. I dropped my truck in my driveway with jackstands, and without removing the tank. It would be much easier on a lift, but if you're comfortable with a wrench and a grinder, you'll be able to install the kit yourself. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  7. Nasty will tell you not to use DJM, if you look back through posts within the last few months you'll see his posts about why. I have a 4wd single cab that I dropped 4/6 because I wanted to keep a slight rake, I used mcgaughys drop spindles, and flip kit, with shorter springs up front. But since you're 2wd, mcgaughys has a complete kit to go 4/7. I would add shocks to the rear that are the right length, I can't give you part numbers because I haven't gotten around to it yet. For wheels and tires, I'm running 305/40/22 tires on 22x10 wheels. I do rub slightly, but it's just rubbing the liner and not any metal parts, and it doesn't bother me. If you run 285's on 22x9s I don't think you'll rub up front. I'm sure others will chime in later, but there's my 2 cents. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. I think the difference between the ride is nearly negligible. You're using the same springs. However shock selection is going to determine if the ride is stiff or smooth. With the shackles, use shock extenders, and you're good to go, you probably won't be able to tell a difference in the ride vs stock. With the flip, get correct length shocks, and you'll have the same result. Shock extenders will help soften the ride but it will still be a bit stiffer. Get the right shocks and the ride will be as good or better than stock Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  9. I'd go with mcgaughys spindles up front with a flip kit in the rear. I would suggest a 3/5 though. I had a 2/4 drop with the same size wheels and tires on my last truck, and honestly I wanted just a little more. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. Yeah, you're definitely not getting "the hookup" but 10 hours is fairly reasonable. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  11. Hell yeah! Congrats, I know that thing is a ripper for sure Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  12. You will need to trim the top stud for sure. It's to make room for the cv axle. You might need to trim the bottom stud to fit your winter set, if you do just removing the unthreaded portion will be plenty. Your 22s will clear fine. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  13. If you have 4 wheel drive then you'll need to trim the upper ball joint stud so it's flush with the nut. If you run smaller than 20" wheels you may need to trim the lower balljoint stud. I would recommend shock extenders. It'll help keep your shocks in their operating zone. As long as your u bolts don't show any signs of deformation I would say they're OK to re use. I would change them if you remove them a second time though. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks, I used mcgaughys spindles up front, and flip kit in the rear. I forget the number but it came as a package from mcgaughys. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  15. Here's a pic of my my previous truck that was on a 2/4 drop with 22" wheels Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
