After I redeploy I am looking to spend 3-4 grand on mods. The rest the money needs to go in the bank, what would yall do

    no lift, stock tires. Only mods are a topper (leer), shit ton of roofracks (for kayaks, us boaters tend to go over board with roof racks), brush guard and nerf bars. Im not a big fan of either the gaurd or bars I might up the money later down the road for some all pro bumbers and sliders. What kind of lift (dont want to go over 3 in) and what size tires. Im, at this point, truck stupid. Kinda hoping to cure that

    well its all in how much money you want to spend lots of people do the 5100 shocks all around and do well with it or you could go king coilovers for 2.5 inchs of lift tires would be 285 70 16 i think im sure chris4x4 will correct me

    ok you guys have screwed me. I am sitting in afghanistan and in between games of tag with the bad dudes I serf this sight, and day dream. The 3k will probably turn to 6 or 8, Hence this post. Who has installed the all pro
    Sheet Metal Style Front Winch Mount Bumper (Powdercoated black)

    ? What does installation take. Im a pretty mechanically inclinded guy just never worked on vehicles. Is it just a matter of takeing the bumper off and bolting to All Pro one on or is there and Mods needed. I am thinking of buying it shipping it to my folks house and installing it on leave. Also I am unsure if I will be able to get my lift done on leave so how retarded does a truck with the All pro bumper and no Lift look. Further more keep sending lift and tire suggestions. Being from bama I should now about this shit huh. Then again I can read and have all my teeth so am I really from bama?

    If you don't wanna do the vacation-

    Some other ideas are:
    -SUPERCHARGER!!!!
    -Soundsystem
    -Tinted Windows
    -lift
    -UCA's
    -Double din dvd player
    -Color matched everything (front grille surround, rear bumper, side mirrors, door handles)
    -weather tech floor mats
    -wet okle seat covers
    -all pro bumper, whatever the nicer looking one is, if there is more than one model
    -Sliders
    -Winch

    that can blow your savings a few times over.

    Other than that- I would really consider taking your g/f if you have on- or any other hot ass girl on a vacation (I would take my hot ass g/f somewhere secluded/tropical and watch her fine ass prance around in a bikini. Lots of lovin, lots of crab, lots of sunshine, lots of fruity alcoholic beverages. And did I mention lots and lots of lovin?)

    There are lots of options for the lift (up to about 3in) with a new bumper.

    Cheap route: Bilstein 5100s with an add a leaf
    Middle route: Toytec coilovers or OME 886s both with an AAL
    Expensive route: Icons or Fox upgrades like TexasIslandBoy linked to

    Still many more options out there too...

    If I had $3k, I'd go with: OME 886 coils probably with the N140s shocks they offer, Allpro 3in leaf replacement pack, Total Chaos UCAs, BFG MT KM2 285/70/17, and an Allpro plate bumper. All this will probably run a bit more than $3k now that I think about it but go big or go home right?:p

    ...and you're not the only well educated dude with a full set of teeth from Alabama! 24 years and still no accent, Woot!
