Hello, If I install this 3" PA Body lift on my 05 Dodge Dakota SLT 2wd, will I still be able to use my K&N air intake system?
Great question, since you are using the same mounting location you will still be able to use that intake system once you install this body lift.
How long would installation take? Both professional and DIY since I know professionals work a lot faster.
Average install for a professional is 6 hours. Depending on how familiar the DIY installer is with tools it would roughly take closer to 8 or more hours. The install isn't difficult its just time consuming.

pretty good kit
I have only had this kit on my vehicle for a bout 2 weeks, that is my reasoning of only having 4 stars, I haven't had enough time to use the product. I was a little worried about how the handling would be with this lift and new tires, but turns out it is great. I am loving this kit.

nice lift
This product has been doing me well. not only does it look fasntastic but it installed like a champ. it was easy to do it just took a while. That's the only downside I have had with this kit, the install time. really enjoying this kit so far.

Was straight forward and easy to install.
Gave just enough lift to keep the OEM tires and rims. This was a great way to make my 2005 quadcab a little more impressive. Lots of comments on the truck since then. Be sure and get the fender skirting along with the lift kit to hide your exhaust manifolds as it isn't included with the kit.
