    I would suggest sending a PM to Blackhawe88 or MJP2. Both have LT kits and can give you the shakedown on the driving experience.

    other than having to deal with people sticking their heads up in your wheel wells when its parked somewhere, you should have no issues...

    since the kit is only 2 inches over, daily driving should be pretty much close to stock...

    if you were running a wide kit, then yah, you would have to be more cautious about parallel parking or parking in compact spaces... believe me on that, i have the scuff marks on my tires to prove it... hahahah...

    but daily driving an LT rig aint all that bad... i drive a lot of street miles and have no issues with it other than coming out to my truck to find people sticking their heads in my wheel wells to check out the arms and bypasses...

    The resulting effect of our LT kit is added miles since you'll want to drive your truck every chance you get! :D

    my miles did not change that much, running the all pro kit will not be bad. The hardest part with long travel is parking like what MIke said and some street are narrow so you are at the edge of both side of the lane. gas milieage will not change much.

    Thanks Kenny ! Second question, should I go with fox coils 2.5", TC UCA, Fox suspension kit from all pro for the back, 33" tires +wheels Now or wait a couple months when I have the money for the LT kit and just get the All Pro LT with those other things? Since most of those items are required for the LT kit anyways ?

    I believe the front suspension is different for LT you can just buy the standard fox and just upgrade to LT later...you will have to change them once you go LT...so start saving...Sarah will chime in to confirm that though.

    Ya, save up and get it all at once, I am in the same position, this sounds like it is the best all around kit on the market. Havent heard any bad reviews on it.

    you buy the whole thing as a kit, so you buy the shocks at the same time. Give all pro a call, talk to John or Sara. Both are very nice and will help you out, just tell them you came from tacoma world.
