    Hopefully this isnt a repost[​IMG]

    So I'm lookin into LT kits and have come down to these two.

    Engage or All Pro

    Does anyone on here run these kits?

    How many inches of lift did you actually get from them?

    What size tires are you able to run.

    Care to give any input on them?

    Any other company besides TC or Camburg that you would like to mention?

    I still want to gather up as much info on both to help me make a good decision. I know that they will both have pros and cons and one will be better than the other in some areas but i want to try and get direct input from actual users of these products.

    Feel free to post some pics of your LT rig if you would like.

    To add, if you do run the Engage kit on a 4x4, where did you get the longer cv axles? They say that they currently do not carry them and that I would have to look for them elsewhere:(

    I know its a bunch of questions but I want as much info as possible.

    Thanks brothers of TW.

    I have the Engage kit and Im currently waiting for CVs. The kit runs great in the desert. I keep up with Total Chaos tacos without bypasses or bumps. Click my sig pic for pics. All Pro will give you a narrower track width for trails and such, but our trucks are really wide and long to begin with. All Pro's LT kit is tubular, while Engage's is boxed (looks better, IMO). At the end of the day, if you want a kit that is currently guaranteed to work with 4wd, go with All Pro. If you dont mind waiting for Engage's 4x4 and have 15" of strapped travel, go with Engage.

    really it's personal preferance. what looks better to you? both kits look great on the trucks but with engage, like blackhawk said, you'r not gonna be 4WD until their custom axles are available i think thats still a few months away. also with the engage kit you gonna have to run fiberglass fenders, with the all pro kit, all pro says you dont have to. if you like to hit the desert and trails the smaller track witdth of the all pro kit might better suit you.

    Im a newb to LT but isnt All Pro only pulling 13" of travel? I thing a King Mid Travel Setup with UCAs pulls 12". Alot more money for an extra inch of travel. I think Engage pulls 15-16.

    I didn't think mid travel pulled any higher than 10, unless you modified the bumps

    As for usage it will be going through hard/soft dirt and from time to time I'll be hitting the dunes in Pismo.

    Trails are out of the question since I have no trial buddies...or buddies with tacos for that matter

    If I do go with Engage (most likely will) waht can I use to cover where the cv shafts go for the time being?

    Thanks guys youre a bunch of help.
