DBR or not to DBR

i'm sorta in a dilemma right now and i need some help. i have an 02 st 4x4 and just a couple weeks ago i made up my mine on putting the Dixon Bros Racing 4x4 LT kit. the front end with c/o's is 4200+tax, deaver springs 650+tax, shocks, 35's mtr's, 15" wheels, fenders all around, its about 8000 out the door.......but now that i got the cash its kinda hard to let it go cuz i wanna buy myself some investment property. my next option is to keep the stock suspension and add oem replacement c/o's to get rid of the tb's and add a bl with 33's mtrs. i dont want a super lift cuz it doesnt raise the drive terrain. what do you guys think. some moments i want the dbr and sometimes i wanna save that money......help

yeah if you can get by with some minor mods to make you happy, invest the rest and then go back to the truck later maybe. the kit is a blast so far and I've only barely got into it. but thats my .02 on both sides of the fence

what sucks is that i sold my lifted ranger for the ST for the sole purpose of installing the DBR kit. i bought me an investment property last yr and wanna get me another one in about a yr-2yrs.....i dont have kids now but i feel that if i have one b4 i fix my truck i will never have it the way i want it or it will take longer.

Sorry.. couldnt help it.


I'd invested it. If you have the money to buy it, its the time to do it. Not alot of people have that kinda of money laying around so you can definitely get a good deal. Just think after it picks up how much money you just made? You can always use that investment returns to get something better. A brand new Raptor.
