    For 4wd in Hawaii yes. I don't think there are desert runs through whoops so he would probably want the 2" less wide than the other long travel suspensions and it works with his 4wd.

    Why not? If you got the suspension for under 5k and you had enough for a bumper why not? :D

    if you are 2x4 Engage LT kit with their king shocks in the front and for the Rear a AP 3" leaf pack and either kings or fox's. that would be right at 5k but you would need fiberglass front fenders. You get more travel out of the engage then the allpro LT kits.

    That engage kit is super wide. I doubt it would be great for rock crawling.

    $5000 will be for suspension only
    not including tires, bumper or any other accessories

    Nothing that requires fenders, bumper, etc. I wanna keep my stock fenders and bumper.

    The truck is 4wd

    Basically the best way to put 5k in the suspension.

    I got the wheels and tires picked out. 33" Terra grapplers on 18" KMC Monsters

    I wanna be able to do any type of off roading.

    rather than going to an off road shop and have them try to sell me what they make money on I figured ask tacoma world. You guys know your stuff, I cant think of a better place to get ideas for the PERFECT LIFT
