    So before I get flamed for buying the Baja and then wanting to upgrade the suspension, when I bought the Baja I didn't have the funds or knowledge for what I want now. Anyway I have the stock Baja setup with about 19k miles on them. VERY light off roading plenty of members can vouch for that haha. Just curious what people are willing to pay or what I could sell it for or maybe some of you will tell me to keep it, who knows. Looking for feedback good or bad.


    Thanks,

    Alex

    Well I personally want to say why would you want to upgrade the suspension on a sweet factory package?!?!?! But if you want you should upgrade to icon stage 4 for a Better set up

    See these are the questions i need. I want a tad more lift and travel. I think I could net maybe an inch more travel if I switched out the UCA's, maybe I should start there?

    Ya I was looking at the 3 favorites, King, Fox and Icon.

    Maybe I need to explain the off roading I do, for one I stay away from bushes cause they scratch shit :) Mostly open desert like prerunner stuff.

    In the prerunner case you should definitely go icon and if you are not on a budget how about full long travel

    I thought about full long travel and it is pricey but besides that seems like it needs a LOT of upkeep which is one of the main reasons I have been a bit reluctant to go that route.

    Are Icons better in the sand than Fox? I know the whole digressive vs progressive.

    Alex, only thing I can see you doing is a UCA and maybe a better leaf pack, with your very moderate type of offroading, save your money for new house projects.

    x2. That's a lot of dough on a whim that may or may not get used to even it's partial potential. UCAs, maybe a progressive AAL or new leaf pack, and some little stuff, like ubolt flip, etc . . . would be way cheaper and way more practical.

    Very nice. Maybe you need to ditch the LT go to the Baja suspension. :laugh:
