    This forum has a lot of good info. I was in your shoes about 2 years ago, I researched a ton of different threads and websites and ended up going with an Old Man Emu 3" complete suspension kit. I couldn't be happier, but it all depends on what you intend to do with your truck, and how much money you want to spend. The search button in the top right of this webpage is very helpful - with a little bit of searching and reading, you should be able to answer just about any question you can come up with. You can also check out the websites below, which are popular vendors for suspension parts made for our trucks. Good luck.

    Need help
    My $0.02 is the OME. You really need plan out if you are going to be adding any other weight i.e. bumpers, winch, skids, sliders.... If you go with OME you will have to pick your front coils to match your truck and weight. I did the full OME dakara, nitro shocks, 885 coils. Ride is great. I also did the LR UCA and a U bolt flip. Again I suggest you also pick out what you would like to do with wheels and tires. It can be a real PIA if you get it all done then have to do it again to change your UCA. Also feel free to call ARB for suggestions. Their tech line is great to talk with.

    Since everything functions as a system it is not the easiest to break it up into parts with out having to redo some of the work. It can get salty to do all at once but is a one and done. It also feels like you just got a brand new truck.

    Work in progress, but installed so far; 265/70/17 Duratracs, Spidertrax, OME885X coils with OME lean spacer, OME N140S and N182 shocks, Wheeler's 1.5" 3 Leaf Progressive AAL (kept the overload), LR UCAs. TP14 spacers
    Need more info before you can discuss specifics. Double, access or regular cab? 2wd or 4wd? Hauling anything?

    It's probably gonna be just a light bar in front , and the wheels are going to be 285 instead of 265
