The remote start won't work if your CEL is on. You need to bring it to either the dealership or another shop to find out why it's on and get the problem fixed.

I don't know if I've seen any 24's with 37's combination that actually looks good. IMO if you're going up to 24's you need to be running 40's or it's just not going to look right.

The top of the line companies are Carli and Thuren for 3" slrings. I know Thuren makes their own shocks to go with their springs as well which would be a good setup. I'm not sure if Carli does or...

A 4" lift won't make your truck level by itself. You'd need Bilsteins to full level it out.

Looks like a 1" spacer on the front and a 2.5" in block on the back from what I can see. If you could get an actual measurement of the rear block that would help.

It would have to be off a 2013 in order for the sensors to work. I know the 09-12 sensors are different and I'm not sure about the 2014 sensors. As long as they're the correct sensors to work with...

No a 2006 does not have torsion bars. If it did you wouldn't be able to use the Bilsteins to level it.

For the record the rear Bilsteins used for stock height will not work with a lift.

The bolt pattern will be exactly the same so they will fit. But you will need to use the stock lug nuts off your truck as they are metric and the 2004 would have used imperial ones.
