This might be a little long winded but I promise there will be several pics at the bottom lol. So I've been doing a ton of reading on here and learning about different lift options for my truck and after a year or so of reading and saving up some cash I was finally able to get a lift put on my truck. I had decided to get one of the lifts from PRG and once I had enough money set aside I started looking closer at their website to get an idea of the final price and when I went to the contact page I found out that they are located about fifteen minutes from my house! I called them up and wound up having a long conversation with Greg about the different options for my truck and the different pros and cons of each one. Not only did Greg answer all of my questions (and many more that I hadn't thought of) but he invited me up to his shop to see the different products they carry in person and even offered to let me take his rig for a ride so I could see what kind of ride quality it had! Needless to say I was pretty blown away by how friendly and knowledgeable he was and wound up taking a trip up the hill after work one day to go check things out and talk to him in person. My truck is an '05 CC Nismo 4x4 that is my daily driver and occasional hunting and camping rig so I wanted something that handles great on the road but will also get some more clearance and capability when I get out in the backwoods. After talking things over with Greg I decided to get the Radflo 2.5" extended length coil overs with the PRG upper control arms for the front and a set of the Deaver rear lift leafs with matching extended length Bilstein 5100's for the rear. Plus, because I live close enough to drive to his shop Greg offered to do the install for me and the price was so good I jumped at the offer lol. I did have to wait a bit longer than expected for a couple of the parts to arrive but once they did Greg worked with me to figure out a time to get everything installed. Unfortunately that basically wound up being ridiculously early in the morning so he could get me taken care of before I had to be at work since he was leaving for a family vacation the next day and things would have been postponed for another week or two. I showed up a little early and he was able to get started right away and once his other guy, Ian, showed up they both cranked away at the install and got everything done in a little under two hours. I was amazed with how fast they were able to get everything done! I was able to drive my truck to work and then get the new wheels and tires installed on my way home. So far I am loving the lift. The ride is fantastic and I don't even notice all the bumps on the freeway that used to rattle my kidneys anymore. The height is perfect IMO and gives it a slightly taller, meaner, and more trucky look if that makes any sense. I measured before and after the lift and I wound up getting 2.5" of lift front and rear and am up from 34.5" in the front and 35.5" in the rear to 37" in the front and 38" in the rear measured from the ground to the top of the fender with the stock wheels and tires. I also had a set of 17" Chrome MB TKO wheels with 285/70-17 Cooper Discoverer AT3 tires installed and am very happy with those as well. The new wheels and tires look great and have zero road noise despite the aggressive tread pattern (not to mention a 55k miles tread wear warranty from Coper). The only down side to any of this is that I'm still working on the tires rubbing the plastic inner fender/wheel well. I removed the mud flap, trimmed away the sheet metal and plastic where it was rubbing, and then used a heat gun to re-mold the remaining plastic back away from the tires to where I can test drive it without rubbing but then the cold night sets in and winds up pulling the plastic back to where it rubs again so I'm going to have to get a little more creative with it... Besides that small issue (that's from the bigger tires and not the lift) I am VERY happy with how everything turned out. So far I've been limited to daily street driving but I'm hoping to go run some trails in a couple of weeks to see how the new set up works once you get off the pavement. I would definitely recommend this set up to others and honestly I can't say enough good things about Greg and PRG. So without further adieu here are the pics I promised. Sorry if the install pics are a little dark, we started at 4:40 am well before the sun was up lol.
