    Any idea on how much lift a total chaos +3.5 kit will give you? It says 3.5 on their web page but that doesn't seem like a lot. Not looking for huge lift but....

    A lift is not really the point of a LT kit, typically 3-4 for a 3.5 over is normal for 4x4, perhaps a bit more for 2wd depending on setup.

    Thanks for the info.was considering going with lt kit,but that is not gonna happen. I will be happy with my 3 inch toy tech lift.but still would like to go with double shock,on the front end.

    So I am looking at buying a truck that has been built out already for long travel and plan on using it as a toy truck not my DD but just the weekend truck. How extensive doesn't maintenance get when you are only taking the truck out every once in a while. Looking for some local help possibly in AZ.

    I'm in Gilbert. The truck is in Tempe. The guy doesn't have a whole lot of information on the truck and I looked at it at night plus I don't know a whole lot about the trucks yet. Seems like a good deal to me based on all the pricing I've been finding so far on here. It's a t100 4x4 with the 4 cylinder engine. The 4x4 isn't hooked up though and the engine is re geared so it gets up and goes. The cab is caged as well and has an engine cage. As far as I could tell it looked to be all custom fabbed by the first owner.

    It would be cool to maybe find the previous owner of this truck to get some good info on it. Maybe they are a member here

    What are your guys's thoughts on going LT for low speed/crawling type stuff? I've seen pics and vid of allpro's LT and T/C's +2" kit being used for low speed stuff.

    Currently running Camburg C/O's and UCA upfront.

    Only problem with LT for that kind of thing is track width, everything else is a plus.

    How do the extended 4x4 axles hold up with lockers?

    Not sure what the +2 folks use to match the front as far as thickness on wheel spacers go, but when it comes to the axles they will be fine. Only mistake some make is not limiting the travel in the front causing the cv's to bind and eventually break.
