no need for 18 inch shocks unless your mounting them straight up and down or your getting over 18 inches of travel, which doesnt really happen with leaf sprung trucks

but theres no need cause you can get that travel out of 16 inch shocks.

sure you can have them, no reason not too. but you dont need them as long as you angle your 16s correctly

oh im not saying they are bad by any means! just not a need ya know? the joy of having 18inch shocks is you can mount them any angle you want and still get 18 inches of travel.

When you angle the shocks it will put a little more load on them. You would end up putting a little more valving to compensate which will create more heat. Plus you have less total oil which will also create more heat. Its not horrible by any means but if you can get 18's it is def better. Ive wondered why people choose 16's when the cost is pretty much the same.

Like I said man, if you don't have a couple extra thousand bucks ready to drop on repairs, I wouldn't do it. Going out and wheeling an LT truck with $100 to your name is begging for a painful situation.

I know what you mean. But this pretty much applies to any set up not just lt ones

spoken like someone who has never ridden in an LT truck with a sketchy rear that can't keep up with the front. Also, from my limited time around desert people, shit breaks, and it costs thousands to fix sometimes. If you skate, you will fall and hurt yourself. If you wheel your truck, you will break things.

My own little business is taking off. If I get a company car it'll be a taco or an FJ............. the dream grows closer! At least I've already got an econo-box with good mileage.

Yes, it would. You should also make inner fenders for your fiberglass fenders.

That will help keep the noise out of the cab but there's nothing you can do about the road noise from the aggressive tires, the flared fenders, and the joints that are going to squeak. If you keep them cleaned and lubed (dry lithium), they will generally stay pretty quiet.

You will also be fighting all of the stock components that will rattle loose. I recently had to rebuild my entire grill support because my headlights and grill were pretty much freefloating between the hood and the bumper.

Just make sure you stay on top of keeping key bolts torqued up.
