    I have the leveling kit but it rides too ruff, I was thinking about getting the cognito front end kit. You guys know anything about that ?

    Their some maxxima led's iirc. Their clear when off.


    Performance wise mine isn't anything special.
    Cosmetic and functionality is where most differences are.

    Efi-Live, DSP5 switch with tunes by Duramaxtuner.
    BD Fullbore drivers side exhaust manifold
    Edge Insight with EGT Probe
    4" Diamond Eye turbo back straight pipe
    Trans Go Jr Shift kit and a Kodiak trans pan (extra few quarts of fluid).
    AirDog 165gph lift pump with fuel filter and water separator
    Firestone Ride Rite 5000lb airbags and on-board compressor
    Reese Titan Class 5 2.5" receiver hitch
    B&W Gooseneck
    Tekonsha Prodigy Brake Controller
    Eagle Alloy 17x9 polished aluminum wheels.
    295/70/17 Toyo M/T
    2" rear wheel spacers
    Rare Parts HD Tie Rods
    Cognito pitman and idler arm support.
    Cognito 4-6" lift, set at 4" with the non torsion bar drop kit
    Bilstein 5100 series shocks
    DDM Tuning 35w 4500K HID bulbs in the factory low beams and fog lights.
    DDM Tuning LED flood lights on the rear bumper.
    Whelen Vertex Amber LED hide-a-ways in the turn signals and back up lights.
    Back Rack with 4 Code 3 white 4 led light heads.
    Federal Signal 22" Legend led bar

    Traction bars are in the works and it'll get a built trans when this one gives up and then re-tuned for more power.

    How do you guys like the cognito front end parts? and are the air bags worth the money?

    My truck rides and handles great for an 8400lb pickup. I've got the stock upper control arms yet, just running cognitos lift.

    The airbags and on board compressor are awesome. My truck would not like my trailer at all without them.

    Here is mine.

    Bought he bran new. Now she has 107K on her.
    I will get some with Wideo on it.

    The picture with trailer is what it usually has behind it most days. A little heavy. About 11,000 with tailer and 800lbs in bed. The air bags do wonders!

    Has an MPRP 4" exhaust with DPF delete and EdgeEvo race tuner. Front keys but most likely get a cognito front end soon as mine is getting worn out.
