Well IMO a lifted 2wd truck looks bare underneath without a front diff. my buddy lifted his 2wd duramax. but hey everyone has their own likes and dislikes. i found a 2" and 4" kit but notthing a big as you wanna go. I will keep looking for ya. What size tires do you have in mind for running?

well you gotta make due with what you have sometimes. Id love to sell my truck for a 4wd but 1. Id never get what I have in it and 2. the chance of me finding another 2nd gen in as good of shape as mine is slim. I have a leveling kit but I'd like it to be higher. Ive been toying around with the idea of fabbing up a 2wd lift, basically like fabtech's 1/2 ton kit but longer UCA's instead of lift spindles ($$$$ to get some custom ones made I am sure), and my 2nd option is to find a D60 and make my own 4 link setup for it. it would be cheaper to make a 2wd lift but the D60 is better in the long run. decisions decisions!

Im not knocking the idea bud. More power to ya. I will keep my eyes peeled for the lift. Keep in mind a guy on the forum is selling a front Dana 60. just cant remeber his name. I just read it 1 hour ago. Good luck pal.

That is one of the reasons i dont like them, but the other is, if you want a truck that looks like a 4x4, then just get a 4x4.......
