    First piece of armor I put on the truck was sliders after I messed up my rocker panel in Hollister and then installed BAMF skid triology. With those those things you can do lot of stuff, but your truck will be about an inch lower due to the weight.

    The torsen is an LSD. It's what Leonard has in his front (TrueTrac). It's an option if you don't want a selectable locker.

    My plan is sliders > suspension/lift > front bumper > skids > rear bumper.




    I should be ready to rock summer of 2020.

    This is my dilemma. Instant gratification of getting OME all around, already got dakars and enough money to upgrade. Instant gratification of getting my procomp off and upgrading. OR take a couple years to save enough for kings and be bothered by my mistake of buying procomp and run the procomp for those few years. This would put me back a little on upgrading to Kings, but I wouldn't go crazy in the meantime.

    I like the instant gratification route. I think it will be healthier for my obsessive mind for the next couple years.

    Shit if it is good enough for @Twizted it is good enough (for now) for me. I must right my wrong of installing procomp coilovers and rear shocks.

    Have you looked into Bilsteins? I had 5100s on my old 2nd gen prerunner and liked how they rode better than the OMEs. Also, my OME rear shocks weren't long enough for the Dakars

    The struggle is definitely real. It's like being grounded and watching through the living room window at all the neighborhood kids playing outside.

    I see what you are saying. I ended up getting ARB air locker in the front when I switched to 5.29's mainly because of price and hassle of opening everything up again. I already had an air compressor installed in the truck and didn't wanted to pay extra 400 or 500 for selectable electronic locker because I do have electric factory locker in the rear.

    Are you running a front bumper? I may have some 885s I’ll be looking to unload pretty soon...

    I have also been looking at the bilstein 6112 coilovers, same price range as OME.

    not long enough? huh. I'll start researching that. Thanks for the heads up I'll see how it goes with Twizted's install we both got 2015. @Twizted you got dakars?

    Yup. HD Dakars, 90000 front & 2886 coils.

    ...and as a note, I didn't install the ProComp stuff, I bought the truck that way. :cool:
