I wanna know what routes I could go suspension-wise. I have 285/75/16s currently and I want something better than the stock suspension with a spacer lift. I get a bunch of trash talk when people ask why I run spacers and off-road. Should I go for something cheap or should I go all out? Any suggestions are welcome

A lot will depend on your idea of what off-roading is. High speed desert runs? Slow rock crawling? Fire roads?
When it comes down to it though, ANYTHING is better than a spacer lift IMO.
Spacer lifts are the padded bra of suspension.

Yeah that’s true. I see myself doing a combination of the three tbh. I like going to the dunes in my truck as well as taking my truck out to crawl spots to hit some trials. That’s the problem I have is I do a little bit of everything when it comes to off-roading in my truck

Go full retard man! I'd personally go with ICON 2.5" with resis and ICON RXT rear suspension. Oh wait, that's what I did! (y)

Here's what I went with and I couldn't be happier on, and off-road!

I’m also a fan of Icon’s. They get a lot of unwarranted hate in other forums because mouth breathers install incorrectly and then blame the manufacturer for their mistake. Icon has been nothing but stellar and helpful to me. I have their 2.5 w/resis in the front and 2.0 w/resis in the back. For what I do on my truck (mostly desert dirt roads), they are perfect.

Truth! Mine were installed correctly but I still don't understand the hate for ICON on those other forums. They're loaded with mostly King, and some Fox fanboys that can't stand anything ICON. I don't have any hate for King or Fox, to each his own, I just prefer my ICONs over anything else. I've hammered my ICONs on, and off road for the last 10k miles and they don't feel any different than they did when I got them. Plus, being my DD, I don't ever worry about fucking my suspension up off-road cuz I know the quality that goes into them. And if anything ever did happen to them, I know for a fact that they take care of their customers! (y)

So you've narrowed down use, what's your budget?
