Its likely things will bolt into place, but whether it will give you a
noticeable lift or not, I don't know ... after all, curb weights between the
1/2 and 3/4 ton are going to be similar (especially when you discount the
unsprung weight) ... if the front coils are the same length, then I would
bet they are going to sit you up a shade higher, but only 'cause you don't
have quite the same weight, and they are likely a stiffer spring ...

For the rears, same thing holds, check the arc's onthem, see if they are the
same or not ... also the width's, as it will be difficult to bolt every
thing up with a spring that's wider or narrower than stock ...

Just my $.02

Subject: FTE Perf - Off Road Shop in Northern NJ?

I was wondering if there were any good off road shops in the norther
NJ area (basically, metro new york city area). I am in morris
county, and wanting to do some major stuff to my truck, like a lift
kit and an ARB locker in the front, and don't want to do them myself
(a floor lift makes such a difference with stuff like this. :)

so, either a full 4-wheeler place, or at least a good garage where
people have had stuff like this done. anything even remotely in the
area is fine, just preferable someone who has worked with lifts and
lockers and such.

I would just prefer not to do this stuff at a random local garage, or
at the dealer. Plus, it would be nice to have a place to go that I
could talk to some people about this stuff.

thanks for your time.
