    I know this is in the Lt section but you guys seem to know the most and most of you had mid before you went Lt. I wanted to go LT but thats wishful thinking since im a college student with part time job, Soooo mid travel will do. I will be hitting woops and small jumps in this setup

    My build would be something like this-
    -icon ext travel RR
    -TC Uca
    -fox 2.0x10" RR smooth (installed)
    -all pro 3'' leaf pack (installed)
    -king/fox bumpstops on all four corners
    -limit straps on all four corners
    -3.5 glssworks fender flares (installed)

    Lemme know what you guys think. Also idk what length limit straps and bumpstops to get. and idk if spindle gussets and lca cam tabs gussets is a good idea

    what im going for.....

    Save up and buy what you really want instead of wasting mod money on intermediate mods.
    BTW in that video, it's MT front and full LT rear.

    HOW THE FUCK WOULD YOU KNOW!!? :D

    You know everybody says you should just jump straight to LT but I liked my MT and it gave me a real comparison of MT vs LT. I really appreciate it now. Kinda like these gawd damn kids that never had to use a 5.25" floppy disk lol

    supercharged with lots of midtravel bling.
    I have a setup similar to what you are talking about and have all kinds of fun with my truck.

    I dont have airbumps up front because I'm not comfortable running them on the stock LCA. Just my 2 cents. I also don't have limit straps, never had a problem but it is cheap insurance and I will get around to it sometime.
