That's the 5.5" RCD coilover suspension lift - It isn't made anymore.

But yes, it was for 01+ 4x4's.

I was lucky enough to find a brand new (still in the box) RCD setup on Ebay last year. I jumped on it without thinking twice.

Yep, like DJ said - They ran like $2,100 bucks (give or take).
That was the only size it was made in.

They stopped making it in like 2009, if I remember correctly.

That's why I couldn't believe it when the BNIB setup appeared online. You can still find a used setup for sale every once and awhile though.

Some more information on the kit is in my build thread: Project Budget Buster

Doesnt seem like i'll have one soon then, quick question if when I cranked my bars( only about 1 1/2 ) the left one felt crooked, what do I have to replace to fix that?

Got an 02 V6 2wd...
Looking to make some off road upgrades- a good friend of mine works for 4 wheel Parts- any suggestions for suspension and rim/tire upgrades I could benefit from my possible hook up?

I want to buy the right stuff the first time -this is my first truck
Thanks,
Notch

Upgrade traction before suspension. (I.e. rear end then lift.)

Why would I have to re gear my truck if I put 33s on it. And I checked my gears it's 4.10s.

You will have to get a small jack between the axle arm & the body then you can get one in there. Done it myself
