    Hey everyone, looking for a bit of direction as to what my next mod should be.
    '06 Sport
    Stock coils with 5100's at 2.5"
    Stock leafs with tsb and 1-1/2" block
    CBI Moab front bumper
    Wildcat EXT 265/70/17(last season for them)

    This truck is my daily driver but also get out on the trails once a week, Im looking for the next modification for trail use. I have been back and forth on a few different things and wanted some input.

    Replace stock coils with OME 885's and top plate spacer?
    Replace rear block with 1-1/2" AAL?
    Superwinch 8500?
    ARB On board air system?
    ARB air locker?
    285/70/17 MT's?
    Trail gear rock sliders?
    Rear armour with tire carrier?

    The locker and mt's would require a bit more saving.

    Any other suggestions I may have forgotten.

    This is how it sits right now.

    With what you have listed i would replace the blocks in the back, then get a winch and sliders

    edit: also i would get the 885x before the winch

    I would go with sliders or armour underneath. Truck looks good.

    Thats what I have been leaning towards, I know that the stock coils are going to sag even more with the weight of the winch and cable. No here is another question, is a single inch and half aal going to revive my tired leafs or would be it be advisable to just replace the entire leaf pack.


    I havent even thought about armour for the underside, good call and thanks Banff :)

    A new AAL is a temp fix for worn out leafs, i would just replace it with a new leaf pack either dakar or allpro expo

    I just emailed the seller.
    Its funny Ive been visiting this site for quite a while now and have never run across deavers before, mind you I havent really considered upgrading the rear. My main concern when I first got the truck was getting the first half of the craptastic revtek leveling kit out.

    Well I really hope the seller still has these, now another question then, if that is such a good deal then I should consider upgrading the shocks. As far as I can tell they are some kind of rancho, or at least thats my guess, they were white with a red boot, getting pretty rusty though.

    edit: Just got a reply and they are still for sale, just arranging a pickup. Thanks for the help everyone.

    You'll probably need new shocks to get the most out of your leafs, if your shocks now arent extended shocks then they will limit the amount of travel you will get..

    Ok thanks, so Im assuming that I am go to have some rake in the rear then? They have ~4000kms on them, so I am thinking that they would have settled by now.

    Yeah they should be settled by now, i dont know for sure but you will probably have a slight rake, but when you replace your front coils and get the top plate spacer it should be really close to level.
