    I'm interested in the best 3inch complete suspension kit... offering excellent on and off road handling... looking for some suggestions. Also looking for the best options in full body armor and skidplates... :confused:

    Also if you're in my area love to do some trail runs... Holister... etc

    You can do a pretty sweet setup for that kind of money.

    For the front, look into extended travel coilovers from either Fox, Icon, or King with remote resi's and a set of upper control arms from Total Chaos or Camburg.
    For the rear I'd suggest a new leaf pack like the All Pro, Deaver, Alcan (depending on your load needs) and a remote resi shock of your preference.

    If you're looking for a vendor, talk to Downsouth Motorsports. They are a vendor on here and offer a TW discount if you call them. They'll hook you up with pretty much any of your suspension needs and have the best prices around on brand new stuff.
