Knobby-
Is the lift you are having problems with the AIM lift? Or is it just the guys installing it? Do you think the AIM lift is a good one and all I need to do is find a good installer? I would gratly appreciate your input. I am interested in the AIM rather than waiting for the Rancho (but Rancho is here in San Diego, and they could install there own product if I wait). What do you think?

well if you look closely to the suspension lift on the website it says...
"2003 DODGE DAKOTA LIFTKIT 6.5"DK00XX FRONT/REAR (RACK&PINION)"
correct me if i'm wrong but i don't think the dakotas have come out with a 2003 yet

I'd wait. Personally I wouldn't even go w/ the Rancho kit. I'd do a body lift. You don't gain anything extra from the Suspension lift that you would from a Body lift.

But out of AIM & Rancho PLEASE!! go Rancho. AIM is horable. They sent me 6 sets of the "same part" I only had 2 pieces that matched. That's just a taste of what I went threw. After I got my truck to a good shop my truck was still being worked on for another month. They had to re-work everything related to that kit. And the one thing that they left (the fron drive shaft angle) I broke my CV joint. Which just cost me a aditional $415.

Wait out for the Rancho lift.

(probably) the reason knobbyman is having problems with his lift is cause he put it on himself. I took my truck to the guys at Truckn suspension, and they put it on, it took them 8 days, but they did a great job.

nah i don't think knobby putting it on himself was the problem
the 98 lifts came out good but the 2000+ werne't ready to be released yet or were just made wrong or something that it made knobby go through a buncha problems
if knobby would have had a 98 dak and he ordered the lift he prolly could have done a great job him ad his buddy doing it themselves

bigdakota - I didn't install the lift my self. Truckin had one of there reps sent out to my house to install the lift and work out any problems. He got feed up with all the problems with the instructions and the bolt holes not being where they were suposed to be.. Problems with the parts being to big or to short. He said screw it and left. I put the front end back together and took it to a custom shop and they are the ones that finished it. They had to re-work the whole lift.

I'm glad you didn't have any problems but you are one of the VERY few people that I know that hasn't I only know one other guy that hasn't. All he bought was lowering schackles.

Uhhhh..........8 days to put an already-developed suspension lift onto a newer truck where the bolts haven't been bound together with rust and such? Oh, and by the manufacturer? Looks like they probably ran into their own problems. ; )

Later,

umm...just a question Ian...If you willingly admit that the suspension lift you sold Knobby had alignment and bracketry issues, why didn't you at least compensate him for the P.O.S. lift that you sold him? I mean after all you used his truck to correct the shortcomings of the lift? That must be part of truckin-suspensions policy of great customer service...screw whoever you can to get the product out there. It would be one thing to f*ck up a truck fitting the prototype lift and then fixing any problems that were created in the process...taking responsability...and another to f*ck up a truck with a P.O.S. lift and then telling the customer to go screw themself because you got what you wanted...as in the case of Knobby. If you would have at least helped him get his truck up you wouldn't have all this bad publicity on this sight. You would have read instead "The lift truckin suspension sold me had some shortcomings with the bracketry and alignment but they personally went to great lengths to make sure my truck was free of any problems in the development process of an outstanding lift to come for our Dakotas. These guys are great." But now you scumbags have revealed your true colors. You must be a freakin idiot to screw with someone as active on these boards as Knobby. If you would have went about it the right way you could have smelled like roses, but now you smell like sh*t. And another thing, if someone offered me a lift at 20% off and personally installed it to ensure no more bad publicity could be created I would speak good of the company too...its called sponsership...but the truth is that no one else has posted any good things about this company...hmm, thats strange...as far as I'm concerned bigdakota is a working to denounce everything that knobby went through...hell, thats what sponsers are supposed to do...instead, if you want some better publicity on this sight, fix knobby's truck...or we can just keep running truckin suyspensions name in the mud...your choice. While your at it, post some better evidence that the lift's problems have been aleviated. Thats all for now.

My deal with them is finished.. Everything is taken care of between me and them.. We don't deal with eachother anymore.. If I have any problems it's on my shoulders.. And they have taken care of any billing issues I had with them.

I still don't think there lift is any good. but that's my opinion..

I found another problem which I'm not at all conserned about but if they made a lift it should have been taken care of.. (the angle of the rear differential doesn't line up with the rear drive shaft.. I forget what it's actually called). I can take care of that when I add my leaf spring though.

Dodster.. The fact that they are still trying to sell that kit is making me laugh..

I'm still bitter at them for not following threw like any company should have especially when someone spends over $1,000 on anything I should hope that they would have alot better Customer Service.

Oh BTW the nerf bars they sent me.. They actually worked.. (Kind of) I had to jimmy rig those but you will never be able to tell.
