    What would be the ideal suspension lift if I were to be offroading and mudding frequently?

    Also what brand?

    I'm thinking of putting on some xd revolvers with Nitto mud grapplers on a '11 4x4

    What do you all think?

    Thats kinda what I set my truck up for.. i went with Icons front Coil overs and the Allpro Expo leaf pack in the rear with Bilstein 5125's. It rides great on the road and EXCELLENT off. I went with the Expos in the back because i frequently have extra weight in the rear and I didnt want to wear out their regular leaf pack.

    Ok thanks!

    Adding coil covers will that increase the lift of the truck?

    with a 5000 dollar budget, i would definitely go with top notch parts, such as icon or king for shocks and co's. a sturdy leaf pack like dakar's and a good set of uniball uca's like camburg or total chaos. which will leave you with a really nice mid travel set-up..

    don't forget to post pic's with what ever it is you come up with :p :)

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.

    Offroading the stage 4 icon kit would be awesome. But mudding in deep holes I think you have the wrong truck for that but when I think of mudding I think of swamp buggies. All & all you can't go wrong with icons.

    Ideal? Long travel front, 4 Link rear, with triple bypasses and air bumps all around. Be sure to budget for a bed cage, engine cage, and fiberglass.

    Nitto mud grapplers are more show than go. They are quite possibly the heaviest and loudest mud tire you can buy.
