Def not.....what's your budget? A high end coilover and replacement leafs in the rear will be your best bet. Stick with the proven brands, Icon, Fox, King (pick a color and the best price) in an extended travel version with UCA, new leafs and matching shocks. That's the best do all set-up you can get without LT!

Edit - or look into a 2" over LT set up for more flex (AP makes a great kit as does TC)!

With a budget of $5 - 6,000, I'd give Downsouth Motorsports a call. They can give you some great ideas on setups. Tell them you're a TW member, they offer free shipping and sometimes run sales. They are very knowledgable and have set up many TW members' trucks.
