Heres my baby shes a little dirty but just got done installing the lift yesterday to me around 12hrs straight by myself with jacks and jack-stands to do ahhhh! But the ride is so worth it. Still got the bars turned up about half way and have 3.5'' blocks in the back.

It kinda bothers me that the tires look small but they are 325/60/18's (33.4x12.8x18)

dude you dont even know how much i wanted one!!! I worked on this damn thing from like 9 in the morning till like 11pm! by my damn self! and some stuff ya just need a little help like when you are trying to set the diff up in the frame just using a floor jack! Yeah awesome.... And to top it off i was at a buddies house with no way to leave and being all excited like a little kid with a new toy, I forgot all about human essentials like food and stuff like that so needless to say i was glad to have it done.

As far as i am concerned this is the only lift it comes with all the good stuff bilsteins welded knuckles and the pitman/idler arm braces. I am glad i did it and i wanted to make a new post but !WARNING! Anyone running the bars cranked and has done any offroading at all needs to check there idler arm bolts as soon as it feels even a little "wandery" in 4WD. Mine was about to fall off ahhhh! couldnt tell in 2WD just in 4WD it would act like a really bad bump steer. Kinda scary.

There is a dmax in the city i work for, and he has 325/60/18s on his truck, and its only leveled, it looks SIC, its an 06 or 07 classic cc/sb, looks badass. doesnt appear to rub, cuz i looked the front wheel wells over pretty good.
