Our long arm system is very simple. It's two sets of brackets and four arms. You don't need to cut the body mounts, and you don't have to cut any factory brackets off the frame. Just bolt our new upper long arm bracket on, which is self-indexing to the frame to make install very easy. Once the new brackets are bolted on with the provided hardware, all you do is remove your factory radius arms and install our new long arms. The lower arms mount in the factory radius arm frame brackets using the factory hardware, and the upper arms mount in our new 1/4" steel upper brackets using supplied hardware. The greaseable bushings slide into the frame brackets, and the 1/4" thick clevis mounts go on the axle end, and reuse your factory hardware and cam bolts. You use the Johnny Joints to adjust caster, axle position, and arm length as needed. With the adjustability of this setup, you can finally get rid of the coil spring bow that 5th gen trucks have!
The upper and lower arms are just like our 2nd-4th gen long arm setups, using 2" OD x .250" wall DOM tube. Yes, a boxed-style arm is stronger, but nobody has ever bent or broken any of our long arms, so why jack up the cost of the kit just to look cool? Similarly, the factory radius arm mounts are strong enough to hold the entire suspension under the truck, so we are using them for the lower arms only. That reduces the load on these brackets and makes the installation so much easier.
The upper arm brackets are a new thing for us. These are 1/4" steel, with a 1/8" steel backing plate to fit into a groove that is on the frame, and then there is a 3/8" indexing key that squares everything up. It's all welded together to make a totally self-indexing bracket that you literally just hold up to the frame, line everything up, and then mark your 5 holes to drill. Very simple. That is the only modification required for this kit to work. The upper arm is bent in such a way that it clears the body mounts at full bump without any cutting.
If you look at the quality of the materials being used to build this, the ease of installation, and the flawless suspension geometry, it's easy to see that this long arm system offers the most value of any long arm kit on the market. No matter how much more expensive another setup may be, it will not out-perform our long arm setup. We have been making long arm suspensions longer than anyone else currently offering them for these newer trucks, and we're very happy with the results of this setup.

If you have any steps that mount to the body mount under the front door hinges, these long arms will likely interfere with the mount. Custom fabrication will most likely be required to make our long arms work with steps, especially Amp steps. This varies depending on lift height. We do not guarantee the long arms to fit with any other modifications on your truck.
