    Stiffer rear springs

    The answer is yes and no. In the rear you will need a longer shock to accommodate the longer spring. In the front you are using a lifting coil (combo of length and spring rate), technically you could use the factory strut but I think it's ill advised. The factory ORG shocks and struts are...

    The obligatory intro!

    I'm thinking 2" leveling struts, factory ORP rear springs to maintain some rake, upgraded shocks in the back for length and probably sumo helper springs...the helpers will wait to see how it handles the rest with trailer and load in the bed. For now going to stick with factory chrome wheels but...

    Stiffer rear springs

    ORP comes with bils 4600s I believe. Would likely upgrade to 5100 or 5160 for the little extra cost. The new rancho rs90000xl have my interest with 9 position compression adjustment designed to range from stock feel to firm to towing. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    Stiffer rear springs

    It's a good option. 1" lift in the rear will maintain some rake and then the helper to keep it from sagging too far. I need to track down pricing on the ORP springs plus selecting a longer shock. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    best value 1.5-2" lift?

    What's been your impression of the N3 struts? I'm thinking about them or the rancho rs999953/4 quick struts to save the disassembly of stock struts for bils or eibach. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    Stiffer rear springs

    Are the rebel springs the longer ORP springs? I wonder if they 1000s were not for those and may need to find the right height. My only concern with a helper spring in a leveled application is that there still may be too much sag before they really take load. Apparently you get about 1" of...

    Stiffer rear springs

    I'm planning out the suspension for my '19 big horn 4x4. I'm likely only going to level the front 2". In my 4th gen I used airlift 1000s to help compensate the sag when loaded or towing. I'm curious if anyone has found stock ride height or 1"ish lift stiffer rear springs that might he worth...

    Thanks. Had a lot of fun building for the last year and a half. It was a total slug pulling my 6x10 trailer and the truck bed makes transporting dirt bikes a lot easier. I would keep both if I could afford it. Maybe one day. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    Rear spring spacer Jeep?

    Air lift 1000s are a good option. $150, couple hours to install and full adjustability when needed. I ran them in my 4th gen and will probably do so on the 5th gen I just picked up. Air them down to just a couple psi and the ride quality is nearly identical, Air them up based on load and keep...

    The obligatory intro!

    I typically don't go too crazy electronics. I know trying to add factory features gets pricey. The one I might look at is the trailer brake controller. So I can use the clean slide on the dash. These nexans are pretty bad. 32k miles and pretty worn already. I'm struggling with size and wheel...

    The obligatory intro!

    Hey all, New to the site. Last few years I've rotated through some vehicles. Had a 4th gen ram tradesman express that I had lifted/leveled and on new wheels and tires. Loved that truck. Ultimately traded it in for a 2020 4runner for the extra space for the family. That was setup on 3" lift and...
