    Well this is just to see what's out there but am seriously considering a mt or lt setup for my front end and talked to alcan about ordering a leaf pack so the bug is in me. Don't really care to buy new so wondering if anyone has a front for sale. Thanks for all the help.

    Right behind you man. I started looking up MT suspensions today. Think I might be going with Icon but haven't made up my mind yet. Truck still see's alot of towing and I have to factor that in with the setup.

    That's while I called alcan. I tow quite a bit and def use the bed of my truck a lot. They can custom build up to 6 in of lift for 600 and build specific to tongue weight and load. If a good used front end comes up that's the springs route I'm gonna go with so I can still tow boat/bikes. Just a good beefy leaf pack so I have read. But mine is spring under. Not sure what they price out to for spring over....

    Now it's just stock but got a fb lift sitting waiting to b installed but being on the forum leaves me wanting more.... Have rock crawlers. Couple sets of tires to play with when it's installed. IF it gets installed that is. If a good setup comes up the fb will b for sale and the journey will continue. Will wait to hear if something is available. If not throw on the fb lift and just wait. I never thought I'd want to mod a little gas saver but this site changed my thinking.

    Take a look through the B/S/T. I know when I bought my used MT kit, several other 5 luggers put their M/T kits up for sale not long after I made my purchase. Might be worth searching around, seeing if they are still available.
