4x4 question

Has anyone jumped there 4x4 with the superlift or RCd kit? I'm looking to trade in my 2wd for a 4x4. I want to be able to hit trails and still have the capabilities Of a prerunner. Is dixon bros the only one that has that kit?

Mr grigs jumped his truck then lost his wheel on the way home from a wheeling trip but idk if he was lifted or not.


its not about the lift on the truck or anything like that our trucks werent designed to be jumped esp with the torsion bar suspension. if you have seen the latest dunes trips beard jumped his truck and he had to go have the shock hoops rewelded and he has a fully built front suspension if you want a prerunner the TTB trucks have more travel and you can get a 4wd one but idk much about the prerunners but i know it takes some pretty tough front end components to jump it with confidence

I always wanted a prerunner that's why I have a 2wd but when I started going on trails I wanted a 4wd. I want a little of both worlds! I'm not going to do and high jumps, maybe 3-4 ft tops

4wd for the trails and buy a bike or quad for jumping. The only way to get a 4wd to take jumps is to spend a lot of green on it. Well kind of the same for a 2wd. Hell I wouldn't be jumping your truck with the mods you have. Spindle lifts are just for show.

Keep your 2WD and go Dixon or Camburg...but you are getting into some monies.

It would be nice to have a nice prerunner set up but it wouldn't do so well in trails. If I get a 4wd I plan to swap to a coilover front end from a tbars
