Have been having fun/beating on things/tuning shocks making sure everything is good for going down to KOH again this year.

Also went 4x4ing up the mountains. Never got stuck once, we took the ditch up becuae the road was a sheet of ice

Thanks guys,

Mike I was torn too until i rode in an sas'd ranger, wasnt for me and now there are 3 different LT 4x4 kits available with no shortage of axles. BUT it is quite a commitment to tearing apart the entire truck haha

The tear down is NBD it's the width I worry about adding 8 in to my track width is not good for the trails around here.

I have tight trails as well but its never been an issue. If anything its helped, being low and wide has given me a lot of stability, and i still fit in any trail. Lots of people think IFS cant wheel until they see what my truck can do, shuts them up quick :p next step is a front locker. If I cant find an aussie I am swapping in a tacoma front diff

What kits are available now? Thought Dixon bros wasn't around anymore?

I know I'd rather have LT than SAS, especially being here near the desert and not have to lose my 4x4.
