    You might want to shop around, there are quite a few unhappy customers with Engage's LT front kit.

    If you're not really offroading, theres no point in getting long travel. It's a huge investment that lets you go a lot faster offroad than a stock truck. On road.... having a wider track and no sway bars makes your truck a lot harder to drive.

    crap bolted and welded together....
    Not really off-roading? Don't get a LT kit, more then you probably want to tackle with maintenance and cost.

    also, im not one to comment on grammar...but seriously? lol

    think it through before you start to tear your truck up... once you go all in, it's ALL in...

    if you are local to the So Cal area, you are more than welcome to come out to one of the Barstow or Lucerne Valley races and cruise by our camp... you can see the chase trucks up close and maybe go for a ride...

    i have had the kit on my truck for 6 years with the original stock spindle...
