    its a 6 inch lift, not sure on any of the specs but Im not sure if Im even getting it at all. was talking to a friend and he said he might be buying a truck with a 6 inch lift and 40's..said i could have the lift if i wanted

    my only question is, what will have to be done with steering/ driveshafts. from what i understand is that if i drop tcase ill have to lengthen rear shaft not front, but if i leave tcase in place i need to lengthen front? will i have to do anything with my steering?

    was planning on doing a 4 inch to avoid things like this, but hey you cant beat free!

    If the donor truck is road ready and driven now, it should have everything you need. If you can, get the shocks, the lift blocks(if any), steering arm, brakelines and springs(bushings too)....
