    i live off of palm and 7th looking to put together a long travel kit i use my truck for work so needs to be somewhat comfortable. i drive the ortega hwy. to and from work and will frequently wander off the beaten path our jobsites are dirt and rocks so when it rains it turns to soup, and i love to hit the mud. i did a 3'' body lift in the front to get more clearance on my tires not enough don't want it to high because i still like to corner on paved roads. i fugured if i push the wheels out i can get what i need to have a ride that will function well anywhere not interested in climbing rocks. i want to haul ass through the mud and dirt. do you install also or just a vendor since your local i will give you first opportnity to meet my needs thanks i would appreciate any advice or info i have an 02 tacoma crew cab

    my short term goal is to lift my truck pre-runner stance. long travel suspension. tube steel bumper front, and back. i have fiber glass fenders on the front gonna do the rear soon. i have 30'' bfg m/t km2 tires. purpose for my build i work construction some job sites require you to go off-road which is fine i see a lot of guys getting stuck all the time the rear locker kicks ass saved me countless times. i drive the ortega hwy to and from work it's paved and has tons of twists and turns, and if you drag ass through there you might aswell pull over. i also beat it up pretty hard and its not going to hold up forever. i figured i could gain more overall wheel travel widen the stance which could help in corners and give me more clearance in my turning radius so i can keep the lift to a minimum. im open to opinion.

    He means LT cost thousands of dollars.

    It cost me about $3,500 just for CO's and the LT kit alone.

    ok so you mean a spacer lift not a body lift two totally different things. and long travel is no joke it will cost you upwards of 4-5 grand just for the front if done right and even more for the rear sence your a first gen. my suggestion to you would be a solid mid travel set up like im running so you would need new upper control arms i prefer total chaos then you should get new coils and get rid of the spacer that will make your truck ride 10x better then you can get wheel spacers which will help fill out your fiberglass fenders and give you the wider stance you want

    Not really 1st gen parts are cheaper than 2nd gen parts.

    but i thought they dont really make a sua kit for the first gens like they do the second gens( defined, dmz) so it cost more to get all the parts separate and takes alot more fab work ?
