Deaver F67's are good for 1st gens, unless you plan on carrying extra weight or at least dual spares then get the 50t pack from Engage. Engage will have a huge sale for black friday if you can wait a few weeks to order

Sounds like you should go with a midtravel set-up rather than LT. This would maybe fit your needs better.

If wanting to go LT think big money
