    I love my DCLB and would like to put LT on it. But how would it look? I wont do any racing but do like to drift and screw around when the dirt gets nice and wet.
    Anyone have pic's of a Speedway blue DCLB with LT?

    There are quite a few LT long beds so dont count yourself out just because of that. If you want it, and you think youll put the $12k to use, then do it.

    The plan!
    Since my kids take most of my money I cant do it all at 1 time. Here is what I am thinking in terms of doing a little at a time.

    1) lift spindles and spidertrax on the front. with frenders.
    2) long travel rear with bed sides.
    3) long travel front!

    I would do these in 6 month steps. does this sound like the way to go?

    the only reason I would get the fenders is because I thought that the spindles already widen the front track. Also if a by the first I wont have to buy them later.

    ^ it's true to get them out of the way in the beginning, but without a front tube bumper and the actual wide track it may look silly, but I did it a month before getting LT myself

    Not enough.
    Yes, get the rear out of the way. I think its the most restricting.

    I've seen caged beds with only mid travel up front and works pretty good.
