    Right now it has a 6" pro comp lift, which looks cool, but I'm kinda scared to go buck off road. So one day I hope to build a long travel suspension system for this truck.

    I'm thinking of starting with the front and going with the total chaos LT kit, with fox/SAW 2.5 coilovers w/eibach springs, and getting some glassworks front fenders. Then I'll have to take it from there, I might leave the rear as is for a while and see how it hangs out in the dunes. But if anybody has soms advice, or better options, I'd love to hear it.

    ...too much shit to list.
    Welcome.
    Read these on LT

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/lo...-considering-long-travel-read-here-first.html

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/long-travel-suspension/56245-long-travel-information.html

    Unfortunatley you already have a DB lift so you're going to have to get creative in rebuilding the factory crossmember that gets cut out with that lift if you want to go LT. It's been done, but keep that in mind that fab work will be required to remidy the ProCrap lift. Not sure if you're a fabricator or not, but LT is not a install it and forget it type of suspension.

    Also, you'll get better performance out of doing rear LT and a basic mid travel up front than the other way around. Otherwise the ass of the truck will just end up bucking.

    Thanks man, that actually helps me alot. I'm not a fab. guy, I'll just fork out the extra doe and leave the work to the professionals.

    After reading those articles I think I should maybe see what the mid travel option may offer, and how much wheeling I can do on it. I guess I'll check out some of these fourms.
