    $2500 won't get you much in terms of a real long travel kit. You still need the shocks, bumps...not to mention the rear end, which is more important.

    Read the LT section . A uca and a lca down the road will do nothing for you .

    Tc uca aren't long travel. Long travel extends out 2"-3.5" and provides for much more up/down travel. What you'd be doing is considered a mid travel setup...which works for 99.9% of people. If you're trying to get your wings n fly...then long travel would be necessary.
    If I were in your shoes with $2500 to spend on suspension, id contact sonny at downsouth motorsports. They are a vendor on this site and have been steering members the right way based on their needs. Check out their website and you can build your own suspension.
    I am running the deaver j66 pack, so yeah I've heard of em.

    Do you think 3500 would be good for the front and back I just really want to be able to go fast like 60 or under 60 with the mid travel be suitable for that . And would I have to reinforce anything under the hood ? AND ! As far aas my truck over heating is the stock radtior going to handle ?

    sounds like you have a loooooooooooooot of research to do before pulling the trigger on a kit.

    Full long travel front will cost you anywhere from 5-8k..done right.
    Rear will cost you anywhere from 3-8k..done right.
    These are with new parts and fabrication work.
    You could always buy used and save but it'll take a while longer.
    I have a mid travel setup...king coilovers and camburg arms. Rear is deaver j66 and some 5100(for now).
    I've only done about 35-40 mph on roads with minor whoops. For 60 mph+ you're looking at a $10k investment, imo.

    What would you say is an appropriate rear setup to keep up with (for the most part) a TC +2" LT kit?
