    Default chevy rookie!

    Hello all! I am new to the forums and new to the Chevy world, I just purchased myself a 2006 Regular Cab Chevy 1500 LT with only 74k on it! I pick my new to me truck up on Monday because I unfortunately owe backtaxes and my stupid town hall wasn't open today. Haha, I'm from Connecticut - we do things weird.

    My future plans for the truck...

    - HID Headlights
    - 6" Lift
    - 35" Tires
    - Double Din Headunit w/ speakers
    - Spray in bedliner


    Anyone with any helpful information on lifts, sound systems, and even the HID Headlights please by all means point me in the right direction. Thanks!

    hey welcome to the club truck sounds like it will be looking good after the mods. it all depends on how much you are willing to spend on a lift and what quailty of a lift you want you cna always go with the high end lifts like fabtech bds cognito or a best bang for your buck lift like rought country

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys/gals! I just have a few questions about the RC Lift Kit for my truck...

    Which one is better? NTD (Non-Torision Drop) or the Easy Install Kit? They're both the same price... Also, do I need any additional equiptment? Leveling kit, steering stabilizer, kicker bracers, hd tie rod sleeve upgrade? I'm looking for a kit that will last without having any issues terminally affecting driveline, motor or transmission.... Thanks guys!
