not for our trucks, there dixon bros but their dead, or theres btf, which is in the process of building something.

4x4 long travel is VERY limited unfortunately.

im officially high or somethin.

im sitting here thinking, what do i do with the 3" coils if its too much lift for me... (want more wheel travel)

then im thinking i should get my stock snouts in my lift spindles for strength.


DUHHHH...


if the 6" is too much, put in the 3" coils and UCA's and put my stock spindles back in the truck. LOL.

sometimes i make myself laugh. so ill be ordering the stuff shortly, as soon as i can get ahold of everybody.

Your going to give up the spindles for lift coils? That doesn't sound like a good idea. Coils ride rough as hell!

uhh lol, havent really kept track. lets see....


without including things under $40, $4140. roughly.

$2,000 of that is rims tires and lift, another 500 into fenders. i see it as my hobby, so im not so concerned with investing. but after looking at what i have into it, i might drop the extra lift idea and jsut put my wider axle in, pull my bedsides and replace my front shocks with 5100's.... it does make more sense in the long run.

thanks for giving me a mini wakeup call lol. i dont think my daily driver needs another $2,000 in parts now hahaha.



Edit:

OK new plan. gonna work with what ive got. Going to maximize the travel that comes stock, make a custom rear leaf, and replace my stock shocks. feel better about this way, its less money and the truck is already lifted where i want it.

(im also considering buying a house, so this is a good thing)

So ill be placing an order with summit racing for my shocks, should soon have my wider axle so i can start to tear down it, will pull my bedsides maybe next week, and build my hybrid leaf spring also. once these things are done, i'll grab the exhaust ive been wanting. going to shave my bump stops down a bit to grab a slight bit more travel, and when my new shocks go in ill measure the droop to bump and see what my front end pulls. im gonna guess something gay like 6-7" lol
