In my garage ready for install:

Zone 3" level with Fox shocks
BDS steering stabalizer
White color matched fender flairs
White mirror caps and door handles (in the mail)



I'm going to attempt the level today, not sure if the weather is going to cooperate and my truck doesn't fit in the garage.

Trying to decide if I like the single front fender flair look or front and rear, my front tire doesn't stick out much so I might add some Fred's 1/4" spacers in front.

****these pics are not my trucks, just reference********

I already have all four and their painted white.

I prefer the look of the white truck with the flares on all four corners.
Nice truck by the way.

Thanks, all four has been the plan just seeing what others think.

I did get the level on today, the front is about 1/2 lower than the rear but I'm going to drive it a little to see how much it settles.

Doing the job on my back in the driveway wasn't that bad, the hardest part was getting the BDS stabilizer shock into the mount. Did't get pics of that install yet.

Also installed the color matched mirror caps and door handles, maybe a 20 min job to switch everything out.

Nice, looks good.

I just got a big box from Cognito today with some parts to finish off my leveling kit. Got my pisk kit, sway bar links, shock extenders and rear Foxes. Still waiting on tires and my front Fox reservoir’s. Decided to order up a few more things before I tackle this.

Did you do bds bracket for the stabilizer?

Yes, and it was the worst part of the entire install today.

After getting the bracket installed getting the shock into the bracket was a nightmare, I must have tried different things for an hour to get the shock in between the two arms.

Bad on me for not testing before mounting the bracket, if I would have tried and found out how tight it was I would have pried it apart a little first.

After going through the hassle of mounting the bracket I wasn't about to pull it back off.

After I finished I wanted to get to the rest of the kit so I didn't snap any pics of it installed but will clean it up and get some tomorrow.


I still need to install the DIFF lowering kit, didn't have time to get to that either but it's on the list for tomorrow.

I thought that bracket looked like a pia to install. I was going to buy that kit and then I found out that stabilizers interfere with the Cognito pisk kit. So I am going to install the kit and then the stabilizer and see if I can lower a shock extender bracket enough so there is no interference and weld it on. The diff drop is not too bad, mine took about an hour. Looking forward to some pics.
