ditch the AAL and go full LT...

you might be able to find coilovers, but the stock LCA, ball joints, and UCA are going to be weak points... as the intention of the 5 lug is supposed to be on street, the suspension parts are not built as rigidly as the 6 lug trucks...

you dont need to be jumping to break the truck...

10% may not seem like a lot, but that one time you miscalculate, and you are sitting there trying to explain to your parents why you need a few hundred bucks to repair something that could have been avoided to begin with...

Invest in some decent coilovers. 10% offroad is not worth dropping thousands and thousands on something you most likely won't use. My truck gets close to 300 miles per each tank of gas...even at 10% offroad...I would be driving 30 miles offroad each tank. I'm a farm equipment salesman...and get to drive offroad regularly...but DOUBT I spend close to 30 miles offroad on each tank.

Save your money for something you'll actually use....liiiiiike an education? A house?
