    If you are 2wd you can run spindles. Just straight lift. Doesn't affect the geometry of the suspension. You can keep the stock shocks and ucas if you really wanted to.

    Well with spindles the ride should be really great having no preload, Kings and Icons seem to be more popular, Icons have a heavier spring rate, Kings lower.

    Paired with a aftermarket UCA it would be one hell of a midtravel kit.

    What type of driving are you going to be doing? What size tires are you planning on running? How much hard off-road use, if any? You need to ask yourself these questions, and then try to determine what parts to buy. No need to spend a ton of money on "sicky" mid/long travel parts, for a truck that will only see light trails. ;)

    NOnononono... not a big fan of long travel where the tires stick way out to the side. Im more of the back country off roading guy. hit rocky terrain, mud, snow, ice, sand. 4x4 guy.

    Then I wouldn't recommend spindles. They will widen your stance 3/4" per side, and if you change wheels too, you could be looking at about 3"-4" wider total when all is done. I'm calling it quits for today, but what size tire are you going to run? If you let us know that, I'm sure the great TW community will come up with some other great suggestions for you.
