all depends on how much u want to spend, typical toy around here lift 36's locked rear dual cases and you would be set. Make sure you get rock slideres right away tho

heres what you do: buy highsteer, remove your rear leafs, buy another set of stock rear leafs. use those two sets to make up a set for the front of your truck. buy chevy 63inch rear leafs from a 89-98 chev pick up. install those in the rear of your truck. if its just a bush truck, weld your diffs. next is gears 4:88 or5.29 then tires. if you like rock crawling buy dual t case. then theres winch, longfields etc.


thats a good start and really isnt all that expensive

highsteer :$450
rear stock leafs $50
chevies $50-150
gears $7-800
winch$ 3-1000
welded diffs: freebie if you can do it yourself.
longfields $750

dont feel like you have to do it all at once..... i had mine stock, then lifted, then locked, then dual t case...... added stuff to it when i had the $$

all depends on what your gonna use it for.. buy a trail gear classic front lift kit and a matching rear lift weld the rear and buy some agressive tires.


or weld the rear cut the finders and buy the biggest tires that will fit.
