Are you dropping the transfer case/ front diff? If you are how much you want to sell it. how much you want for the t-case and front diff?

mcgaughys kit 44014 2/4 drop kit is the kit you would want.
thank you tim
I talked to the guy at mcgaughys he claimed that there not even making a kit for the 4wds something about axle geometry and alignment, funny you can buy 2" lift spacers everywhere which i ran on my truck for over a year and they aligned out fine!! further more mcgaughys said nothing he has will work my only choice is the expensive ground force kit thats way over priced for a freaking coil spring and flip kit! Also the 06-08 2wds are not the same as the 4wd refering to the pics!! i looked at some at the dealership, 2wds use a coil spring and shock running through the middle, my 4x4 uses a strut assembly
