I also don't want one that just covers up the old one.

Ya I want a stronger one. The axle is out right now and I'm cleaning up all rust so it's easy to get to right now.

It looks like on my 99 I can get one that raises it 1" and not need a body lift. It looks like a body lift is needed on a 03 and newer because of the extra evap in the fender well gets in the way.

Did more reading one the one in the link I posted. It's a great price and everybody says it's the same as all the others and built just as good.

i gotta go with 4point on this one. From what research ive done, i would say Rokmen has the best gas skid on the market. But you do need a 1" BL, or you can buy a .5" spacer for like $30 from them.
