We have our own subforum! Maybe things will be a little more clear between what is compatible and what isn't.

I was excited to see this as well. Its easy to get conflicting information since most of the non XI folks dont know how our cars differ. Looking forward to hang out with all the other 4x4 fanatics

You will blow your shocks soon enough and eventually need replacement.

As well, your ride quality will severely decrease.

Spend the money towards everything.
