    2008 DC LB more mods by the month
    I am about to go pick up a 2008 DC Long Bed TRD Sport, just waiting for the time to get over to it. I drive on gravel roads more than most, probably like 1/3 of my driving- work in the outdoors. I am going to put a canopy on it. My instincts tell me that the suspension is not going to like what I'm about to put it through. I want a nice non-jarring ride on washboards, pot holes, cattle guards and bumpy gravel. I want the best suspension for this application, but it also has to ride well on pavement. I intend to put an ARB bumper on the front, and wouldn't mind about 2" of lift, but not much more. Price isn't really that important, but I want to keep it realistic, like under $800 if possible, but willing to spend more.

    What are my best options for this? I will post some pics when I get it. Thanks.
