Exactly, by then mine won't be a DD but I will be driving it on the highway to get to off road places.

The pricing is awesome. I can't decide between the weld kit or install kit. I can just by my own welder and turn the garage I'll have into my shop. Haha

Haha yeah, my welds and the prettiest but they hold well. I'll definitely practice before and if I decide I'd be better off I'll just go with the install kit.

10-16k for full out I'd say.
Yeah... The more I look, the more appealing mid-travel looks...

I'd love to have LT, but I'm not sure if I'd be out in the dunes enough to justify the price the more I think about it. I might just end up going with a really nice mid-travel setup....

Nothing wrong with that man. Mid travel will take you many places. Plus it keeps the rig sorta stock so maintenance is easier and the ride stays quiet and smooth.

Yeah it's probably best unfortunately haha with me being in New Mexico this summer I'm going to get the itch for LT again I'm sure!

But I want to turn this thing into a vehicle that I can drive down the road to a trail, make it down the trail, and camp out for the weekend out of my truck. I like my suspension that I have right now, but I'd like a smoother ride when hitting bumps over 10mph haha

Mid travel will do that man. And more. Really it's the best option for a good comfortable and capable expo rig.

But yea..will always want the crazy stuff haha

Haha yeah, I'm debating going with Icon or Fox extended coilovers with resies in the rear, and also run expo leafs, and all pro UCA's.

Don't laugh! It only encourages him...

Hmm, I worded that terribly... Haha

I was thinking I'd go with extended up front and resies in the back. Or do you think I'd be better off with just resies up front. Heck, I'm not even sure if I'll need resies at all haha
