Yeah I am with you. I think what I am going for is the one man emu 3" lift with rear 2" lift shackles to even things out and a tcase drop for now. Then I'll trim my fenders for 33s then next will be a regear to 4.56. When I have the money I'll upgrade to the currie adjustable arms with JJs and an sye. what is a good brand for gears?

I'm not saying we should kill stupid people... Just get rid of all the warning labels...
If you find my comments to "infer" something, they don't. Go to hell.

Do some research on the shackle lift... idk much about them. Look at Yukon for gears.

From what I have read adding shackles can make the ride rough but they aren't necessarily bad to use. If i really can't stand the shackles I can relocate them. Apparently that can solve the rough ride. This is still going to be my dd that's the only reason i decided for the old man emu springs and shocks.
