    Been thinkin bout this too for a while. Will borry the wife's sissy hammer and get going.
    Already Picked the right steps for this and if I gotta loose the Tow hooks up front then I can live with That. If you want the description and part #'s for 02-05 that can be found on former Vendors site performancelifts.com and they are 40 bucks cheaper than Moe's however I'm sure Duane can accomodate your order.

    I do have a question though for Frog. When the rear bumper is completed and lifted does a fellow just take some square steel and fab a piece to take up the gap between the OEM hitch and where it bolts up thru to the bumper in 2 spots? Thanks.

    OK, I'll Bite...Never Did go with the 3" BD, But I will sorta "walk the walk" a Tad with a 1" Kit Instead. Should be on its way next monday when I close the Deal!

    Once Installed I can put some 35's which I always wanted. This will give me a total overall 4 to 4 1/2 of lift all the while keeping my Mopar Replaced front shafts at a good angle for 4WD Hard Launchs.

    Gonna be ordering the PA 3" lift for 03 1500 soon. Do all trucks involve the cutting or just some? I know a lot of the years are different so just wanted to see if anyone has installed this on a 4x4 03.

    02 to 05 are the same set-up just like in Frogs Video. So get out the grinder!

    Great video, makes me want to add 3" before I go out and purchase new tires...maybe those 35'S will fit with no worries after all...
