In regards to long term happiness.... I couldn't be happier. Not sure how long I've had the cross over steering and the trac bar, but I can tell you that they're just about the last thing on the truck I have to worry about. I can still turn the truck with my pinky finger. The steering feedback is great, just enough to let you know its there, not enough to make you work. I couldn't be happier.

If you have, or if you plan to run larger than life tires, this is absolutely a worthwhile investment.
I'm glad you didn't sell the truck!

Glad to hear about the long term I have been debating the cross over steering. I was going to do that the brace and change my control arms to the long arm. It drives ok but still not where I know it could be and feel the next step is this stuff to make it more drivable. Also the cross over looks sweet painted.

When you guys say it centered the axle, you mean it'll fix that inch or so mine is off since the coil spacers were installed?
If so, sign me up! Where and $$$?

Absolutely! http://www.thurenfabrication.com/ is Thuren's web site, the 2" bar is $300. The trackbar is beefy, too, probably double in size.

Thanks for the link dude! Gotta get me one of them.
Do you guys think the extended control arms are needed with a 2" level?

Absolutely not. Also, be sure you get the bar for 0-3" of lift, this is the bolt in bar. The weld in bar is for 5" plus.

I think the extended control arms are absolutely necessary. Without them, caster is off resulting in wheels that don't naturally return to center and subsequently gives your truck the dreaded death wobble. Search for death wobble articles and you'll see they're usually trucks with 2-3" of spacers without the the extended arms. I bought the extended arms for my RAM and it rides/drives/steers just like OEM, probably a bit better.
