Sorry, I jumped the gun. I do not have one, but from what I hear, if its paired up with aftermarket coil overs, the ride is as good or better then stock. And the biggest down fall that I hear a lot is you cant do any hard core offroad.

Thats all I got, sorry. Try searching it. Top right coner is the search tab. Prollt find a lot of info actually.

apperance it will give you. Better ground clearance it will not. It actually takes some clearance away.

Search it. ppl have posted picks of it on there truck, so you can see. The braket its self is what takes away a little from what you had stock.

I was the first one with the kit for 2wd off the production line back in 06 and it has held up well over 4 years. I cannot speak on hard core offroading cause I don't want to dent my ride up and I'm only 2wd, but I have not heard of any complaints from the guys that do wheel with except ground clearance.

Are you opposed to doing something else as far as lift goes?
I don't know what type of offroading you plan on doing but you could always do the adjustable bilsteins up front set at 1" and then put a 1.5" spacer on top, do a 2" AAL in the rear and then do a 2" body lift. It would be a lot cheaper than the calmini kit.

do what you want. It will ride good, just ground clearance will be the same if not lose about 1/2 inch thats why you need coilovers to gain it back and also taller tires..i had my calmini for a while now and used it but i dont rock crawl or anything. here in hawaii is some really tough terrian and its still intacted together.. Make sure you paint it first haha i wish i did..

Just the kit, ride is same as stock. Add coilovers and the ride is much better than stock, plus as stated above, you will actually gain ground clearance with coilovers, but you will not gain any clearance with just the Calmini kit.

Mine is working out fine, I've added to it with things like PRG UCAs, coilovers and a 3" AAL in the rear to make it sit level.

i could have swore i gained some clearance with mine. it was about 1.5 2 inches.
i never had problems off road or anything. it did however get bent on one of the mounting tabs for the lca. that kinda pissed me off. im eventually going to swap out the db for the time being until sas becomes readily available.
