yeah but I would suggest installing it yourself only if you don't have anymore warranty. It doesn't void whatever you have left of you existing warranty if its installed by the dealer. I dunno, but IMO I would go supercharger and install it at the dealer. The extra $900 or so is worth it.

I have a lift, 33" tires and the supercharger. I get 15 mpg.

When I was stock I was getting near 19 mpg. Then supercharger I was around 18.

Lift and bigger tires definitely has a greater impact on fuel economy than the supercharger alone.

X2. You could put together a pretty decent setup if you were patient and found the parts for a good price. AllPro's kit is pretty cheap (compared to others) and you could find some bilsteins to get you started and still have enough cash left to get tires. Supercharger would be nice though

There's a bit more to LT than just a front bolt on kit

I was implying that it would be a good starter set up that would be affordable on the op's budget.

Title of the thread states 5k of lift or s/c. 5k of a front LT setup would be useless, you need to invest 10 grand or more on a decent LT setup, you could get a good m/t setup for 5k though.

Why are people saying get a 6" lift for wheeling? 35" tires are too much for these CV axles and 6" is way too tall for the trail. Besides if OP has to ask this question chances are he ain't gonna wheel it.

Just get the supercharger.

Neither. If you love your truck enough to drop 5k on it then do it a favour and have the frame hot dip galvanized. For the same 5k you will still have that truck 30 years from now.

Thread is well over a year old, the OP's truck has a lift and no S/c, I think he made his mind up a while ago.

FWIW, the S/C is only helpful at about 2500+ RPMs, also while it's upwards of said RPMs you are guzzling gas.

If you have a 4wd, do the lift, if you have an XR, do the S/C.

Can't recall if I've posted in this thread or not.

If someone was to give me 5K to use towards either mods, I'd go for suspension. It would be more usefull on and off road to me than a supercharger.

Though I'd rather use said money to 4x4 convert before doing either of the above. Too attached to my truck to trade it.
