Next week i'm sending in my 00 for a complete suspension package, 6" lift, triple front shock towers, probably going with the ladder bars on the back too, then there's the tires and rims that will be needed and the final piece to the puzzle to turn those new tires... an engine, cool.:D

You must have forgot about the burning rubber part. You got to change the gear ratios to keep your bottom end torque.

Didn't forget, truck tops out at 96 MPH with the 4.10's already, dunno what it will work out to with 33-35" rubber but we'll see.

I have a pro-comp kit in my 95 (probably going to nickg this weekend) and it has never given me an ounce of trouble with a great ride.

Don't worry about the budget, i have some left for you too but will likely need the stuff by 2 mondays from now as thats when i scheduled to put in the engine. Stuff is ordered including ladder bars and triple shock set-up. :) :ro)

Tell us about the engine.
I called DAS today, its all there but they want the guy that tore it down to finish it up, he's back on monday. They have to put in a mechanical pump to run it on the test bench to make sure all is ok and then put my pump back in. Should be outta there next wednesday if all is well.

I actually asked him if they were going to send me my engine back, he didn't appear to like that question but i needed to know or else i might have been calling JK. Once again it'll have rebuilt heads, new crank, balanced rotating assembly, splayed mains, 18:1's, gear set....and the list goes on...

Pro-comp.

With all the bells and whistles about 5 G's installed with taxes. If i just did the 6" lift only it would be $3100 installed.
