    Can't recall if I've posted in this thread or not.

    If someone was to give me 5K to use towards either mods, I'd go for suspension. It would be more usefull on and off road to me than a supercharger.

    Though I'd rather use said money to 4x4 convert before doing either of the above. Too attached to my truck to trade it.

    Jesus. This thread is a clusterfuck.

    Ultimately, it depends on what you want to do with the truck. The logical thing is to assess whether you're going to actually go off-road wheeling or mostly driving around town with the occasional path trailing. That will give you your answer.

    Personally, I'd be more likely to SC it, since I take my truck daily to work and such and drive more city. If I was able to find paths more easily, and off road areas to mess around in, I'd be more likely to upgrade the suspension, but since I have the Baja, I might just do the SC anyway.

    So you have to assess your situation, because everyone is going to give you an opinion based on their perspective.

    A poll with no expiration date is the gift that just keeps on giving. Folks! The OP created this poll over a year ago and hasn't even visited TW since last November. :rolleyes:

    Depends on the kind of driving you intend to do. If you plan on Off Road use then of course get the lift. If you plan on a daily driver for the concrete jungle, then go with the blower.
    I'm going to buy a blower soon, but before I do, i'm upgrading my brakes and handling.
