    So share with your friends your plan for the rear instead of getting butt-hurt and calling mommy.

    NO! Youre grounded!
    Instead of deleting this thread, maybe lets see what kinda good advice can come from it. There are alot of folks on here who know what they are talking about. Its just a matter of kicking their heads out of their butts.

    Yes...which is why I suggested the rear first. Hard to make a recommendation without knowing the other half of the equation.

    Should I wear my black sneakers or the white ones to match my outfit...

    Maybe he wants to address the front first? Listen.......This site is a resourse for getting information on things like this. If you dont want to answer/help the OP, then dont post.

    An LT is going to be much more functional than a DB lift.

    What are you trying to accomplish with your lift? Travel? Ground Clearance? Curb appeal?

    I was set for some advice, since the front kit is a bolt-on, and an ideal rear LT setup would require cutting & trimming in to the bed of the truck and welding a frame up why not ask around. Lol it's all good, I'll figure it out.

    Not all LT rear set ups require cutting the bed.

    Let's start over.

    OP what are you plans for the rear?

    From a functional standpoint, doing any form of LT up front would be a waste of money if you don't have a rear suspension that can keep up with it. Generally speaking you want ~25-30% more travel out of the rear of the truck to get the most out of the front. Not sure what your wheeling preferences are, but if you aren't prepared to put the money into the rear, a solid midtravel setup will serve you every bit as good as the AP 2" kit (and probably better in the tighter trails). In the end it's your $$$$.

    And whipper's right, not even the front is completely bolt on. Some welding required.

    yep its all about the intended use of the truck, just way the pros and cons.

    for looks and to fit bigger tires go with a drop braket

    for off road performance (mainly high speed) LT is far better

    I am that guy, and it sucks. The plan was do the rear right after the front but then two more bikes were purchased funds were gone and now I have a truck that will buck me sideways hitting a bump scary and not fun.
