I've been looking into doing a mild 3" lift w/ 33" tires to gain a bit more ground clearance.
This was going to be complimented by high clearance bumpers front and rear.
My plan was go use new COs and UCAs for height with the addition of 2" wheel spacers to increase my track width a little.
I've since learned that AllPro offers a LT kit that only pushes the wheels out about 2" and am wondering if it would suit me? Or if it would be so overkill that it'd be a waste of money?
I don't plan on jumping my truck. Most of the terrain locally is rolling prairie. It's kind of a middle of the road place for 4x4s. There's a bit of crawling, a bit of high speed sand, a bit of forest trails and dry riverbeds... but there's nothing really crazy enough to justify a dedicated rock crawler or desert truck.
Mostly I just want to increase clearance and stability and I'm thinking LT might save some abuse on the chassis/drivetrain. It seems as though LT would allow for softer impacts, for the front axles to sit closer to a factory angle, and that spreading the track width through LT will put less stress on the front suspension than using spacers.
The question for me is whether it's worth the extra $2000? (EDIT: CO/UCA ~$2200 vs LT ~$4200)
I know that question is something I can answer, but I'd like some input from others?
