How much wider does it make the front end? And it's not even a lift kit? I can't see anyone spending that kind of money just to run 33" tires IMO

A little overpriced for a glorified widening kit which doesn't even include the shocks

That price is cheap for a longtravel kit. Any LT Kit for any truck will be 3k-5k without shocks. Just to do a basic LT Kit front to back on most trucks will set you back 10k Min.
This one should prolly lift it about 4-5" I would bet about 4" wider each side and clear 37" tires with fiberglass fender. I'm just shooting of my hip from experience, I haven't seen one of these kits, but I would like too. Might tear mine down and rebuild it with this stuff after I just got it dialed in.

I think this is a great price for a pretty straight forward LT Kit. I talked to Chris at KOR and he said it increases the width 2 1/4" on each side. I am seriously considering this kit.

Looks really good. I bet it doesn't widen it as much as you think it does. Look how much further down that arm hangs than stock.
