LT rear. I do want to run 35's and of course re gear the diff. Bumpers and a good spare carrier are also in order.
So I guess what I need is lots of opinions such as pros and cons of either or. I also need to listen to my emotional and rational needs but your opinions mean a lot to me so please...shoot away!
Not too sure you will save much if any money going full MT
LCA $1600 (or $600 if you got the smokin deal I got)
King Bypasses $1200 (going to have to buy them new chances of finding 6 inch stroke bypasses used is almost nil)
Dual shock Hoops $350
Your going to need to gusset your spindles at minimum or buy aftermarket spindles so your looking at between $200 to $1400 depending on how you do it.
Labor to put this all together if you can't do it yourself.
I'm pretty sure by the time your done with the Ultimate MT setup you may have spent the same amount of money as LT.
How do I know all this....here is my setup
Regardless of the small diff in cost between MT and LT I love my setup and don't regret it one bit. But as I said above I got my LCA's for $600 bucks and that made a big diff in my decision making on staying MT.
