    I am really happy with my current setup. So far i could not be happier.


    However...i already have plans for my next go around.


    King 2.5s upfront with 700lb coils(bumper and winch plus ill have a lot more armor) and Camburg UCAs

    out back I'm still undecided shock wise..fox or king i guess

    for leafs, I'm going to relocate my hangers and get some Allpro Expo leafs and keep my 1.5'' shackles. I'll need the beefy leafs as ill have Plate rear bumper with tire gate, bed rack, roof rack, sliders and a RTT.

    i will also do a ubolt flip and relocate the shocks to this configuration /\

    but that won't happen for a while i think. A year or two depending.

    i really like how my truck sits now and rides tho :D And thanks for the complement!

    Ya, I'm torn between Fox and King coil overs up front.
    Funny how you mentioned the All Pro Expo leafs...I was looking at them. I already have OME Dakars on. and I am planning to put some weight in the back.

    No problem

    If I were to get the Fox or King shocks for the rear, would they fit in the orginal spots, or do I have to do some modifications?

    LT is awesome. Very expensive tho, but depends on how far off the deep end you want to go.

    new fenders, new shock hoops? lots of stuff..bypasses..secondaries..

    ya true...maybe I'll wait, cause Hawaii is a pain in the ass about lifted or modified trucks. I'll just do a mid travel style suspension. and work my way eventualy to a LT

    keep basically everything stock but in excellent condition with the best parts (shocks, brakes, bushings, etc.) and then swap a 1uz-fe to the stock manual trans.
