i had them custom made from a place by my house. they cost me about 30 bucks for both of them but they are saved in their computer so amytime they come off or start to peel i can just go get some more. the ones i have are cut from a rebel flag but they can do any design you want.

ya id like to see that, and ill probably go with the 6 first and get the most expensive part out of the way.. how much is the rear lifted on yours? i looked at a few kits that only lifted the back 3.5, but i found one i think its BDS that lifts the rear 5.5 inches, its more expensive but id rather have the extra 2 inches in the back

the lift that i bought came with lift blocks for the rear. i just had to unbolt the u-bolts, add the blocks and bolt it back down. everything was included in the lift. i paid about 2,000 bucks for it. are you going to install it?

I bought the same lift for my truck from BDS, but i went with the full boat and got the skid plate and the new rear leaf springs. I was happy with the whole package, and now that the leaf springs have beded in the truck is pretty level now. If you call a physical dealer for BDS u will get a better deal than on the web.
