    Its been a while since i have been really active on here, i spend a lot of time on xru, but check daily for my dose of things that make you say wtf and funny pics. I got all my info for my current suspension setup from here but am now planning on going a different direction with the truck and am in need of the input from those who know. My plan is by years end to have installed the all pro lt kit up front and their rear setup along with all the trail armor they offer. Not sure yet what coilovers / rears ill go with, but looking for some input from you guys who have run their stuff or the competitions. The truck will now see a good dose of off-road use, more technical trails and rock crawling. Please discuss...

    Their front LT is designed to be used with their foxes. Same with the rear package. Its got all you'll need and the shocks are tuned for the truck. Other than that I'd say icons tuned well for these trucks.

    If you're gonna make the armor do work, I'd go with another brand so it'll hold up.

    CBI, Relentless, ArmorTech are all good choices.

    Budbuilt too! All pro will hold up to a decent amount of damage and be light weight but if your going to beat the shit out of your truck you'll prob want heavier gear!

    Budbuilt makes quality skids true, but they don't offer much else for 2gen tacos. Those other guys I listed are good for bumpers, sliders, etc.

    If you're gonna wheel on 33s, I'd go to 4.56s. 4.10s will get you back to stock, but no overgear.

    I'm running kings with the standard all pro pack and front and rear timbrens. I love the set up. I really like CBI's armor, I have their sliders and rear. Their customer service was the best I've had experience with. I contemplated the all pro LT kit for a long time but opted against it because I was unsure about not having a sway bar. I have since removed my sway bar anyway...

    I've been eyeballing all brands of armor just was thinking since I was gonna have such a big order with ap, might as well get their armor too. Im not dead set on ap armor.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with ap armor. Their fiberglass fenders are designed to fit nicely with their front bumper.

    It's historically weaker than the competition. Whether or not that matters depends on whether you wheel hard or not.
