6" to long travel

is it remotely practical to remove my 6" procomp lift, weld the crossmember back in and go long travel?

or should i build up the rear supension and settle with that set up?

I had talked to one member either on this site or TTORA about welding all that crap back together. I do believe it's possible, he had a fabtech lift kit which cuts all the cross members off and what not... He has everything welded back on and went with some simple CO's. It is possible but it will take lots of work!

Definitely worth it if you wheel. You'll have a lot of other welding to do it you go full long travel with bypass shocks so putting that cross member back in is a cakewalk.

i'm not thinking full caged long travel and what not, just like all pro or something up front and a decent set up in the rear

it wont be that hard at all to put it.

I kept my cross member just in case, I would just brace it around the joinys when you put it back, but that member is only in compression so it doesnt see that much load under normaly conditions. but if you are jumping it ( which I assume is a possibility with you going LT) I would brace it.

yeah i'm just debating cloning your rear set up and then calling it done for my truck, or go lt. but i do want to keep it good for camping and hauling and stuff like that.

Putting a new one in wouldn't be all that hard. I say it takes longer for us to rebuild your CVs then welding a new crossmember in
