Maybe it's just me but that seems like a great price

I paid 17k for a 5yo 07.5 with 98k LS package.. 25k little on the high side for a 5yo truck.IMO. location can change value that much as well
Might be a '11 non def truck there's a few out there that skirted the cut off.. Which could call for more $$

Either way I can't do anything right now...

Anything with more doors is substantially more $$$$ then a 2 door. CC dually same year and similar mileage where going for twice as much as the one I bought

Yeah I know, it's ****ing stupid how much the price varys. I'm probly going back to a regular cab, only reason I bought the LLY cc back in the day was to sleep in when I first started the rigs and worked 16's all the time and was an 1+ from anywhere. Those days are long gone.

Have a super nice 13 cc sb ltz, big lift. Power folding boards. Some reason they cut all the e brake cables off. Each one at its bracket on the dust shield and then up at the pedal too. ?? Maybe they thought the power boards would hit the cable.

You find a clean 7.3 with a 6 speed let me know. I prefer an 02', but any will work.

Is this what happens when you choose rims with the wrong backspacing? Never understood the dimensions beyond height and rim size ha-ha. With all the guys that wrench for a living on here surprised I haven't seen a thread like this before. Keep it going!!!!

My service writer told me this kit was the original trail master IFS lift. Something about they went out of business as well? Utilizes the stock knuckle with a lift block sandwiched on top to move the upper ball joint higher. Then a lowering center link that moves the connections further inboard. I believe that completely changes the steering angles incorrectly. So if you don't have enough offset in the wheel or wheel spacers the tire rubs drastically on the upper ball joint and control arm.

We had that lift on my moms old 98 3500 cc/lb 454. it was a 4" lift and it always had shit going out of wack on it. My dad put a whipple charger on it at 10k miles and said when it hits 70k, hes selling it. mainly used it to tow our 35ft toy hauler at the time and he was scared the 4l80 would start going out not longer at that mileage.

but for the lift, one of the rear blocks sheared its pin off while at the dealer for some work that was causing it to go into limp mode. shoved the tire into the bed fender and f-ed it up (u bolts were tight too). Then the drop down steering bs would come loose every 5-10k and need to be tighten back up. Liked to eat tires and never really rode the best. i hope they are long gone. such a POS lift

btw, the spindle spacers arent uncommon in toyota IFS lifts. if the bolts stay tight and the spacing is correct, i dont see them as that big a deal compared to other bs things lift companys have done but its certainly a cheaper way to get lift.

This definitely made my day! Makes you cringe every time you think about this stuff following you down the highway doing 80 mph!
