    I am so confused. I have about $3000 to spend on suspension. I want the best performing off road (trail, rocks, NOT A DESERT RUNNER) suspension I can get. I was directed towards the RCD 4.5" kit but I dont know I want a DB kit as im scared it would easily get caught up. Can someone please point me in the right direction? Oh and I have a 4x4

    Please do not turn this thread into a pro-comp vs other thread. Thanks

    IMO really the best option for you would be getting some nice coilovers, king icon camburg sway away. and you can get a nice leaf pack and some bipases in the rear and you will have a truck ready to conquer anything with some extra cash to spend. that should only come to a little over 2k

    Looks those up... They are all great mid travel set ups and you should be able to get front and rears, leafs and UCAs for that price.

    I have Kings and the wheeling i prefer is on the trail, but to enjoy the desert.

    You do not gain additional clearance with a 6 inch lift.

    ^^^ Ditto with everything they said...

    and IMHO Dakars are great leaf packs if you want to off road yet still tow and carry loads in the truck...

    ^^x2. i just bought the stage 3 kit from icon for 2200 and was able to buy tires too. i spent a total of 3100. you can get a sweet set up from icon c/o with resis and rear shocks with resis and ucas. youll be set. my vote is for icon or king c/o's

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    rear bypasses on a replacement leaf pack is overkill... you will be just fine with some 2.5" smooth body resi shocks...

    If your 2wd you can get some new spindles and new coilovers. you will get lift and still keep all your geometry at stock location, giving you a good ride and no extra wear on parts. Plus the ability to go from 4" - 6" of lift up front...with no DB..

    basically your gonna want a good set of CO's and UCA's, new leaf pack or progressive AAL pack and good rear shocks. if your gonna be hitting thr trails and rocks your gonna want some armor (skids, sliders, recovery points) and maybe new tires if the ones you have now are wearing down

    good advice from everyone so far. If you dont want to spend a ton on rear leafs check out Wheelers off road 3 AAL pack. I put it on my truck and its pretty nice.

    nice. so really all you gotta do is look around and see what susp company you like and then pull the trigger. good luck. my 2 cents go with either icon or king shocks and camburg/ total chaos UCA's, 3 leaf AAL pack and some sliders and bud built skids. might wanna get a high lift jack and spare full size spare tire too
