thats exactly what i got on my b2. ebay had the best price at the time. alot of ppl say the brackets are underbuild and will bend and break, however i havne't had this problem yet, the 4in lift and 33's is a great combo.

I think there more for a show truck, not meant to take a lot of abuse. They will hold up fine if you want to play in the mud and just look cool with a lifted but there is some flaws. I know the one drop bracket can actually crack open the pumpkin in the front and it could leave ya stranded. Thats my biggest fear right now. Not a lot of clearance with the one bracket.

How exactly does the bracket punch a home in the front diff? Just curious, cause I am also looking for a 4" lift kit, and I have looked at the rough country kit.

Like I said, its good if your just basically going for looks and do little to no offroading. If you want to do more then just sling mud around tho I would go skyjacker.

hmm, never paid that much attention, that that looks like it had a new/longer pivot point for the passenger beam, verse a drop bracket to relocate the stock pivot piece. makes for more clearance.. smart.
