    Truck looks really nice, so how much actual front and rear lift did it give?

    Thank you! Well we did measure at the wheel well before, but unfortunately we did not write it down or remember it. I'll have to find another 2019 like mine and measure it. I can tell you that I'm at 43.25" in the front and 45.5" in the rear after the lift at the top of the inner wheel wells.

    I think it was around 35” front and 37” rear so the kit is extremely close to true 6” of lift, he also switched from 31” tires to 35” tires.

    @JB1 I'm thinking about the Core 4x4 Panhard Bar. Do you think it is a good investment?

    I installed the entire kit plus the Hellwig sway bar on at the same time so I can’t really say any one thing made a noticeable difference, they all seemed to be an upgrade that worked in unison. The factory panhard bar is much thinner and lightweight compared to the core4x4 bar.

    Thanks for your input! The Hellwig Sway Bar and the Core 4x4 End Links sure did make a difference. I think I will get the Panhard Bar too.

    My rims are 20x9 5" back spacing, offset +1. I have no rubbing and did no trimming.
