hmmmm, the starting bid is at 825 and on dick cepek's site the lift is 900, so considering the reserve is that low and no one else bids, ur savings are only $75. I'd say unless you really have ur heart set on that particular lift, and unless those shocks are really good, i would pass and shop around more.

this is the lift i got(got it for 700 how sweet is that?)

it comes w/ an add-a-leaf and brakeline extensions, however you have to buy the pitman arm separate and it doesn't come w/ shocks. it's a little more money but i think it's a little better than the dick cepek

hey sorry about taking so long. here is the radius arm. the tubing is 1&1/4" and all the flanges are 1/4", can't really get a good look at the cepek ones but i think that they are probably both the same thickness/stregth. all that jazz.

id disagree and have to say that dick cepek lifts are the best for the TTB. in fact i would say for every other truck as well, the chevy guys love the ifs lifts, and when cepek disappered for a while, they were really bummed and went else where,

but as it comes down to it, opinions are like a- holes, no offense

oh and the cepek lift is more money by the way, its 900 without shocks, or bushings,

the cepek and bds lifts apear to be almost identicle, all the brakets are the same and what not. damager and myself had compared some of the stuff and it all appears to be the same. BDS is at times tougher to get becasue they usually go through a distributor, i havent found anyone to just sell it outright, maybe damager had batter luck

hers a shot of a cepek raduis arm from the kit i bough, makes that other one posted here look like something from an erector set



heres some pics of some brackets that i had saved from someone else who installed a 4" lift










the BDS is almost the same if not completly the same.

just clearing up the myth
