I finally got a 3" body lift installed on the Daytona along with 35x12.5x20 Nitto Terra Grapplers.

I have to do some modifications to the rear lower bumper trim, but other then that I think it came out pretty good.

Also on a plus note, with a 3" body lift, the engine is 3" lower from the brake booster and the back two plugs will no longer be a PITA to change. lol

Performance Accessories 3" body lift with front torsion crank (approx. 1 1/2"). I also replaced front and rear shocks with Bilstein shocks.

The truck actually rides better now than before, I would guess mainly due to the new shocks.

I do not know about the mph, but I doubt it made much of any difference.

Everytime I see a Bee or Daytona on SRT10 rims, I want them more and more... Gonna be my summer rims, so i can save up all winter. Thinking Gloss Black with some good sporty tires on them.

Did you have to make custom hinges for the front and rear bumpers

No, the PA 3" lift kit comes with front and rear bumper relocation brackets.

Thanks for the link you got the perfect lift I seen some other trucks with 6" lift that look the same you got a perfect set up that's what I want to do with my yellow bee does the tire rub with the front spoiler I like how you did the side step to match the body molding Cool how good was the chip you bought did you notice a difference is it worth the money.

The tires do not rub at all, even at full turn.
There was only about 1/8" between the inside of the tire and the wheel well liner, so I purchased 1" adapter/spacers to move the wheels out.
Now there is about 1 1/8" between the wheel well liner and the inside of the tire.

I really did not notice any difference in power with the programmer, but I did notice the firmer shifts.
You can also use the programmer to read and clear codes and to readjust the speedo with bigger or smaller tires.
Maybe the newer versions give you a little better performance then my old programmer.
