    Bug out mobile for the coming zombies
    285 Nitto Grapplers. Poorman lift using blocks and spacers (to be replaced).
    My truck has (installed by P/O) lift blocks in the rear and what seems to be 2 sets of spacers on the front. Seems they used rubber spacers on both the coil and shock mount to gain their lift of choice.:eek:
    I do not like blocks at all. Spacers, eh.

    So, from the information I have gathered so far from this site (which is great by the way). I think I've figured out what way to go to get rid of the junk.

    My shopping list has the Bilstein 5100 w/ adjustable preload and a pair of AP AAL packs.

    Intended use is mostly wifes run-a-bout and some loads of mulch every year or so. Camping with gear and possibly a trailer.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.


    Oh... by the way, I am running 285/75R16.

    Thanks for the confirmation. Is there anything you would consider differently?

    As stated this is the wifes/family truckster. Future mods will include rock sliders to replace the step bars, and real bumpers front and rear. Not sure which ones yet and I got a little time to research further. But real armor will be added. Which adds more weight. Will my proposed modifications support the future additions or will I end up replacing that for something different?

    Thanks again, I appreciate your input.
