Thinking about getting the Camburg mid travel...

I would be getting the 5.5 kit, deaver rear springs, new front/bedside fenders and dixonbros racing bumper, and then upgrading my 31's to probly 33s and then re-gearing. I live about 5 miles from their shop in hunington beach and would be having them install all of it.(no tools or real mechanical know how)

Should i do it?? My truck is my dd while im in college. Have a decent job that pays better than minimun and dont have to worry about being laid off.

I have a k&n intake if i do get this and start goin to the desert should I switch the the aem dry filter cai? I've read that the k&n can get clogged due to all the dust and sand.

From what I read the K and N suck in the desert/dust. i would get some kind of foam filter.

But whatever filter you use make sure you put a outerwear on it

Ditto and x2 on what Josh said. Prefilter/outerwear/outer filter however you call it. I'd run a dry flow with a prefilter on it personally.

I say do it if it's in your budget and you think you'll get some use out of it.....if not, do something else like Fabtech or whatever that brand that starts with Doestsch or whatever. Camburg stuff is top notch. I would looove to DBR my truck ontop of my already existing suspension lift and run 37's.

I think I would get use out of it. I use to do alittle bit of offroading but i had to quit my old job so i stopped. Im going to LBCC a jc so it's not to expensive. When i transfer I'm going to have to take out loans. I think the main reason i was questioning whether or not to do it was because i had this plan of owning an Audi S4 a year out of college lol, im going into law enforcement top choice is CHP so they have a good starting wage but i think im going to postpone the s4 for awhile if ever and get something more practical like a sti for my dd and turn my truck into a toy.

On the talk of the CIA would a volant make a good choice?
