    total chaos, Fabtech spindles, F67 deaver leafs, dual spares, hella black magic's, 55w HID's, sound system, AEM intake, magnaflow, pacesetter headers, electric fan, optima battery, tach, oil water temp and voltmeter gauges, 4.56 gears, loc-rite locker,
    Ive had this 98 single cab 2.4l truck since 04 its gone through a few different routes. I don't have pics of everything but ill post what I can. I got the truck with a 28" bfg all-terrains, stock gears a Fabtech kit front and rear. UCAs, coils, shocks, aal and rear shocks. I cant say much at all about that kit except it will lift your truck, my ride was crap and I destroyed it just putting around. not happy so I wanted something more...LT!
    here it was as I bought it in 04
    [​IMG]

    here is was a few hours later... tweaked the driver crossshaft, steering tie rod, uca and smashed my fender.
    [​IMG]

    here's where i need to find some old build pic builds sorry. I pushed the order button on the total chaos LT kit after that fiasco.

    [​IMG]

    with the front done and front fenders installed things were missing... bigger tires, gears and locker, engine bolt on's and rear suspension. I went with the deaver J59 prerunner pack not really knowing where I wanted to go with it. I pulled my besides and did a simple shock through the bed mount. it was a huge plus over the fabtech crap. I eventually bought rear glass. this whole time I built my truck and lived in Seattle, WA and got looks everywhere I went. there arnt many prerunners in the Pacific North West.
    [​IMG] Washington
    off-road shops up there i felt were "installers" so I did the task of building it all myself with the help of my friends and much pizza and beer. I built a rear dual spare carrier with some free time.

    and a front bumper(skid plate coming)
    [​IMG]
    I was fortunate enough to recently move down here to San Diego where the flood gates open yet again on a portion of the build. the first week here I headed to Ocotillo with a few TW members, i had a blast! but my rear just wasnt keeping up with the front, I wanted more!
    heres that day.
    [​IMG]
    a few days later I found a member on TW selling a complete rear bedcage, shocks and F67 deavers. I jumped on it, but this time due to time constraints for the upcoming desert trip and not having my garage setup yet I had Brian at American Motorsports do my install. He knocked it out in 2.5 days..insane! I was able to hit the desert again that weekend and test it out. here's a link to my 1st test run, its not much but i wanted to slowly come up to its potential.

    Rides great offroad! Not too soft where it bottoms out constantly and not too stiff where your slamming hard all the time. My shocks are at 180psi. I had 450s but they were way to soft and I had over 2" of preload to get some ride height which made them rock hard. With the 550s I have about 1/4" of preload and its butter. All really depends on your truck setup, bumpers, extra weight, ride height etc... I'm sure you know but on and off road driving will be different, you might think its a tad stiff on road but offroad at speed it soaks up the bumps.
