    Hey, not sure where you're too, but I bought mine for my 04 F150 at Action Truck Caps & Accessories for around 180 bucks, here in Newfoundland, Canada.

    Hope this helps. They did wonders for my truck, now it only drops a 1/4" when I raise the plow, only thing is, made my truck ride a little rougher.

    http://www.stengelbros.com is where I've got mine for the last 2 trucks. Fast service. I received them within 2 days of my order.

    not trying to thread hijack, but will timbrens on a 2500 CTD raise the front end (w/o plow) and level out the truck, or do you still need some spacers?

    I'm thinking of getting timbrens, but my truck sits about 2"+ lower in front than the back. This seems to give me poor traction among other things.

    I would like to even out the truck aswell as stiffen the front end so my truck doesn't squat when I lift the plow.

    Are timbrens enough, or will you need the spacers to lift the truck back up?

    Click on the Timbren/Albany Spring logo at the top. They are a sponsor here and have pretty good deals, plus they are great to work with. I got mine from them last year and they treat a customer right. Give them a try.

    They seemed to raise the front end on my 3500 a little. Im not sure if it sits level now or a little higher.

    United Truck Body 218/729-6000 sells them for around 160. Don't know what shipping would be?

    not to sound dumb, but does a 2500 dodge need timbs on it? i have a 2500 94 chevy and dealer said last year they usually don't need timbs on anything other than 1/2 ton trucks. reason i am asking this year i purchased an 01 dodge 2500 and getting a plow put on in about 2 weeks. oh i am also running 8ft western ultra mount pros series w/wings. gonna get a second one. i really like that plow, and i like that i can pull right up with either truck and lock on to either plow and go.

    See? Why go through all that trouble just to get your truck to ride like mine? Should have just got yourself a 1500 to begin with...:p :D
