    If that were my only option around here I don't have the kahonas to launch off the sand - but then again ours is more like silty quicksand than concrete!

    We pretty much had the ramp to ourselves, everybody else was chicken.

    How much did the level kit cost? And how much was labor to have it installed. I see a lot more trucks now a days with the level kit than a 4 or 6 inch body lift etc. Seems like maybe the way to go..

    On the topic of foreign made...I had no idea the toureg was such a beast. My opinion of them has always been a small to mid size suv not capable of pulling 4500 lbs of boat. I've been very educated so far and my eyes have been opened. The wife drives an 08 BMW 335i and I have not paid one penny in maintenance in 2.5 years and will continue to pay nothing until well after it's paid off. I love foreign!!!

    not sure on the fords but my 2.5" level kit for the ram was about 100 and took me about 3 hrs to install myself. Clears the 35" tires with little rubbing, but taking it offroad would not work as the wheels i got are just a little to wide

    DIY huh.....I have no skills like that so I figure 3 hours labor to the chevy dealership. Looks great and inexpensive compared to a full lift

    Jpetty goto the local tire shop, Les Shuab or another big one like Discount tire. Dont go to the dealer for this.

    I got it installed at the shop on my F150 for 225 and my F350 came with it. The actual kit is pretty cheap, its just a spacer. All they do is compress the springs and install it above the spring.

    This is the cheapest kit out there and a real bang for your buck.

    I personaly think all 4x4 should come factory with these.

    You will not be able to fit 35"s on a GM unless you put a 6" or bigger

    i put mine on myself in about 3 hours and spent $80 on the lift.
    even if you do it yourself you will still have to get the alignment checked

    BTW i have never had any rubbing issues with my ford and havent done any trimming.
    i had bad rubbing on my chevy w/6" lift and 35"s lol

    Wheel offset and width play a big roll in what size tire will fit.

    I've always read the cognito kit is the best for GM. Def more expensive though. Also read it will clear 35s. Ill know soon enough as I'm hoping its a fall upgrade

    the cognito is a much more complex lift than the rough country. if you go more that 2" on a chevy it will not be level and you will have to lift the rear aswell.

    if you are going to go through that much work and your willing to spent that much $$$ on a 3" lift then you should check out the rancho 4"
