It sounds like you need to decide which direction you want to take your truck.

Started with LT and now you're looking at a ProComp or Fabtech lift? Figure out what you want to do with your truck, or if it's just for looks. Then decide on a budget, and go from there.

That's my opinion.

theyre both dropped bracket lifts
they both have their ups and downs
not the best if you plan on wheeling..



But dude. I think I speak for a lot of the other posters on here in saying this:
before you just make a thread about something you see that piques your curiosity
DO SOME RESEARCH BEFORE STARTING A THREAD ABOUT IT.



Being a noob is one thing. Inexperienced? sure. but you dont have to start a thread about something because you don't want to look up info on it yourself.

are all threads you made that were completely unnecessary had you done the proper background research.

OP,

Like Kona says, you have to help us just as much as we have to help you. Figure out what exactly you want, get the basic on it using the incredible amount of knowledge that is already on this board and then post up with specifics.

Oh...and...IBTL.

I want a lift that can handle rock crawling, is comfortable on the road (good handling), and can handle tight trails.

PS what is IBTL

IBTL = In before the lock

get an OME lift kit...

Drop bracket lifts are not very popular among the offroading crowd...

and a new leaf pack (Deaver, All-pro expo, OME Dakars)
for the rear

^^
These'll get you 0-3.5" in the front, and 3-4" lift in the rear, and the best quality lift for offroading.


but again, we can only guide you in a general direction. proper research and the final trigger pull is all on you

which direction does the bill of your hat point, at what angle, and do you drink energy drinks? which ones? Im assuming this is a second gen?

procomp and fabtech are great lifts, for looks. six inches of actual lift will cost you a very pretty penny, but perform so much better then procrap and fabshit. if you take a look around the forum you will see most members are rockin a 3", as its affordable, you can run stock cv's (if you are 4wd), and just avoids alot of headache. anything longer and you need to go long travel, it moves the wheels futher away from the center in the front as to keep the cv's at a better angle, but you have to run tundra cv's or modded taco's (if your 4wd. long travel for a 5 lug is insane. lets hear some more about your truck.

edit: shit for 7k you could do this right, dont know about a full long travel but definetly going in the right direction. does this factor in new wheels?
