    I had the top gun kit on my 04. I was very happy with it until a year later, when i upgraded to extended shocks! Thats when i was tickled pink! As stated above night and diff.

    has anyone ever put like a 2 inch block in the rear? I did that on my chevy with cranking the torsion bars and most people thought i had a 3-4 inch lift.

    i got the spacers on ebay... it had a best offer which it came out they were from topguncustoms. Got it cheaper than it was listed on there website, $56 for the spacer. And then i ordered shocks 2-3 inch lift shocks from Summit Racing equipment for $40 each. Took about 3 hours.

    I bought a set of Husky Springs and removed a ProComp 3" spacer and track bar drop bracket if anyone's interested in them. $65 plus the ride.
