    Yep . Might want to study the LT threads a lot more . Get your funds intact and get a plan and do things once .

    Deaver F67's are good for 1st gens, unless you plan on carrying extra weight or at least dual spares then get the 50t pack from Engage. Engage will have a huge sale for black friday if you can wait a few weeks to order

    Lol true . I've also seen stock trucks smoke some LT trucks over a whoop section and one huck 70ft . About 4 times farther than any LT truck that day .

    Sounds like you should go with a midtravel set-up rather than LT. This would maybe fit your needs better.

    If wanting to go LT think big money
