You might as well buy a 2500 (3/4 ton) truck. The Z71 1500 is a 1/2 ton truck which is a bit heavy-er than the 4x4 truck. The 1500 is 6 lug wheels, with gas engine. the 2500 is a 8 lug rim usually called the Deramax 2500 diesel truck.

I'm in Montana. Who has these kits to beef up the suspension? Can they be ordered online?
