Re: Dakota lift?

Hey Marc,
Yep it's on my 98 right now. I did it myself and it really wasn't that bad.
I think the quality is fine and the components are pretty beefy. Tuff Country did have to send some different parts though (next day air at no cost!!). They
have two different designs of the center link and the rear shocks were too short. It rides just like stock other than the hummmm from my 33 in Super Swampers. It comes with 1 in add-a-leafs (which I hate)for the rear, but I took them out and it's perfectly level and rides much smoother.

I have a picture under my profile. If you right click, you can view it. You can also go to This is another guy who did the same kit and posted my pictures on his site. Mel's is white, Tony's is Yellow, and mine is the Intense Blue.

You're in San Jose?? I work in Morgan Hill and my parents live in SJ. Let me know and we can meet up if you want to look at it. Email me and I can give you the long version or answer any specific questions!!
