    Okay so I am going to get over 10 grand for a car accident I was in over 3 years ago. This is going to take place between now and March, depending on when the lawyers settle.

    I'm going to get a mid travel kit but I'm new to this game and I don't know much about what is good and what is bad, but I have been surfing the web for products and such...

    So I want to know what set up you: HAVE, WANT, GOING TO GET, or RECOMEND

    If you have pics of your mid travel kits, post them!!!!!!

    Also I know that similar stuff has probably been talked about here but I feel this is more direct to me. if you have a link to a thread that will help me out post it


    Thanks
    :)

    Well Im a Pre-runner; the only thing that I have different from what you want is Camburg 4" lift spindles. As for the list below, You can rock any of these products and have a great set-up. If money is not an issue. I would go for the full King w/ Resi set-up and Camburg UCAS and Deaver Replacement Pack.

    Front:
    Fox, King or Icon Coil-overs.
    Camburg, Total Chaos or All-pro Upper control arms.
    Rear:
    All-pro or Deaver spring pack
    Fox, King or Icon shocks
    U-bolt flip kit and Timbren bump stops (from All-Pro)

    You can't do Spindles. You are 4x4. That's just what I have.
    Yes the mid travel will give you about a 3" lift. Which is perfect for 33" tires

    I love my Fox resi's. If you get any shocks from Down South Motor Sports they re-velve for free. They also have the best prices. If you are in the San Diego area. DownSouth is very close.

    I picked icon stage 4.

    Instead go with some TC UCA's and Icon CO's. As for the rear suspension get some Fox 2.0" shocks with resi and deavers j59 spring kit.

    And I have the icon 2.5 rears which also work amazingly well. The bump zone in these work very well . Plus they are rebuildable

    you don't have to lift with midtravel you can keep it from 0(stock) to 3 inches of lift. zero lift is better.

    I've got TC UCA's, King resi's at all 4 corners & a Deaver spring kit in the back. looks sick, and rallies off road. the ride is way better than stock. all the gear you're looking at is great stuff, but IMO nothing beats KING.

    Voted for Kings all corner w/leaf pack. I would stay away from the Icon Stage 3/4 kit because it's AAL rather than a full leaf pack. Just my opinion.
