Look at allpro LT you can run 33-12.50 without changing your fenders. Other than that drop bracket lift is the way to go if you don't want to change your fenders. Although you will have to trim your fenders a little either way. All these guys saying you cant wheel hard core offroad with a DB lift are up in the night and the only place you get more clearance on a 3" lift is your front end under your pumpkin and even then not much more everywhere else like approach angle departure angle and between a the front and rear axles you have 3 more inches of clearance. Full LT is always going to kick ass over DB or 3" coils if you want to hall ass in the desert and even some Rock crawling but even them there is trade offs alinement will never be the same with LT. you will need to strengthen every thing frame, spindles,upper shock mount that is if you want to really use it to its potential IE. Camburg, Total Chaos. I think allpro is a good in-between kit not to aggressive doesn't screw with alinement as much and you can still rock crawl because its only 2" wider on each side. For a non go fast desert person the DB is the best for both worlds
check out lightmup2 on youtube it shows how well a DB lifted taco can do on the rocks and and in the dunes. If you want to get really crazy on the rocks do a SAS. Hole crap that was a long rant sorry hopefully it helped a little.
DB baby totally capable!

You CANNOT run All Pro LT with 33's without fiberglass fenders. If you get out there and actually use the travel it will bash your stock fenders like a retard on a drum on a set.

I have fab tech and I guess for what I use them for the okay but I wouldn't use them again. For the money I'd rather get something else.

No I am not 12. I'm expressing my hatred towards the company. I'm allowed to do that. This is the internets.....as it's said in uhmerickah, Freedom of Speech! Fawk yeah!



I'd imagine you should have realised this by age 44.

To go back on topic. Fabtech sucks! Perhaps it's suitable for you to go to the malls, but their products are rubbish in general. I'd never run their shit.

Not true, my alignment is dead on. If I hit something hard enough to knock it out it would fold your DB lift like a lawn chair
