    Default 2006 trucks

    Ok, i've been looking for a lift, and i discovered that an 03-05 lift is different than a lift for an 06. why is that? The lift for an 06 is i think 90 bucks more than for the 05. What is it that sets the 06's different than the others? Other than pure awsomeness of course.

    Good question! I have never researched lift prices or differences between th 2006 and earlier years. Now you made me curious.

    They made a great product in the 03 to 05 range. In 06, they were already looking at the new body style and left out a few parts on the 06. So you have to buck up a little to get what we already have. AN AWESOME TRUCK. hehe.

    Correct me if im wrong but i think they went with a larger front brakes than the previous years (same as current year trucks 08 09's) and a new rear drum brakes. I have a 06 model but not sure if this was started on the 05's or 06's. That might be why its a little more for a lift , there might be something different than the older models.
