Finally got around to getting some good pics. So far Cognito UCA's, Fox shocks, Banks Exhaust (couldn't stand looking at the factory exhaust anymore, Cognito pitman and idler support arms, 17" XD seriers 797's,
35" BFG All Terrains, and Weather Gaurd boxes. i'm trying to decide whether to color match the mirrors, did it on my old truck but i cant decide on this one, what do you guys think. Also does anyone know where i can get a color matched tailgate handle, i dont understand why they color match the door handles at the factory but leave the tailgate handle black, who knows?
This is my first Dmax, my 02 was a n 8.1, it was an awsome truck but watching the gas gauge go down as i drove got a little old, and these new trucks are amazing!

Truck looks awesome, i want to do the same with mine, alot of people say you cant put 35" tires on with out doing the 4" lift. Clearly you can, what did you have to modify to make it fit? Im ordering the cognito UCA's and the shock extenders for now and i bought a set of the 18" denali rims. Did you just crank up the torsion keys or did you change them? Im so sick of looking at my truck with the stock rims and tires!!!!

Can you make 35"s fit on a Cognito Leveling kit? You can but it is not suggested at all, too large and will require the kit to be used in the suspension ride height higher than designed so wear on the front end parts and ride quality will suffer and you will not get the full value as that product is sold for.

Lets be clear from where I come from because I have alot of people call me on this sense we do more than anyone handling Cognito product, I would love to sell this product in even higher volumes to make more money as a business man but at the cost of saying it's a proper fit I will never endorse to a customer, other Cognito dealers might say its OK but I guarantee they never have touched as much of this product as I have and know it's design points as well to stay with-in to gain the most out of purchase with your hard earned money.


DMAXCOOP, your truck looks great and I don't mean to sound like you did something wrong but I always like to help people gain the most and understand to what cons come with some mods being pushed to the limits. I am unclear if you are a customer of ours also so forgive me if you are and we never had a chance to talk about this set up before you purchased, again no disrespect because the truck does look great:drink.
