I'll have some help from buddies who are more mechanicaly inclined than I am.

If any you guys wanna pitch in any ideas or problems you came along while instaling your Mods for your 1st Gens, let me know. Again thanks for the info.
I am really happy with my current setup. So far i could not be happier.


However...i already have plans for my next go around.


King 2.5s upfront with 700lb coils(bumper and winch plus ill have a lot more armor) and Camburg UCAs

out back I'm still undecided shock wise..fox or king i guess

for leafs, I'm going to relocate my hangers and get some Allpro Expo leafs and keep my 1.5'' shackles. I'll need the beefy leafs as ill have Plate rear bumper with tire gate, bed rack, roof rack, sliders and a RTT.

i will also do a ubolt flip and relocate the shocks to this configuration /\

but that won't happen for a while i think. A year or two depending.

i really like how my truck sits now and rides tho And thanks for the complement!

Ya, I'm torn between Fox and King coil overs up front.
Funny how you mentioned the All Pro Expo leafs...I was looking at them. I already have OME Dakars on. and I am planning to put some weight in the back.

No problem

If I were to get the Fox or King shocks for the rear, would they fit in the orginal spots, or do I have to do some modifications?

keep basically everything stock but in excellent condition with the best parts (shocks, brakes, bushings, etc.) and then swap a 1uz-fe to the stock manual trans.
