but on a serious note its getting there not sure exactly what lm saving for first its either lokka's or suspension both things are needed but l think doing lokka's before suspension might not be the right move if its not going to handle the way l want.
You want to get the suspension right the first time, so work out exactly how you want the truck to work and how far you want to go on the tracks. are you going coils or staying leaf?
are you going 2" or higher. Do you want a truck that is awesome offroad and very average on road. etc etc then build your suspension around the end goal that you want truck to achieve.
Tyres and lockers are easily added anytime, get your suspension working how you want first.

l think you hit the nail on the head there sir andy just decisions to make because l am lazy and the bar work is all modded for the 2" body lift l dont think l would want much more than 2" springs can fit 35's with that set up if l ever get enough power to push em lol l know l am goingto be sacrifice road handling for bush handling but thats a given what l am toying with the idea of though is either parabolics or coil and leaf combo good thing lm broke would have to make a decision otherwise
basically lm gready and kinda want the best of both worlds probably will end up with 2" efs rear ifs model leaves and move the hangers in the ass for starters but when l have that money burning a hole in my pocket who knows what l will decide on lol hopefully moving house this year a shed would be great to lol

goodluck bro just go for it, this is the best set up out there without going coils all round.

4 Front Flex Kit - Complete [ORG-TOY-FKIT2] - $2,199.00 : Locktup 4x4, Hardore Offroad Gear

the rear kit is there as well

don't go half coils , half leaves. they don't work well and are a waste of money, i've driven a few and they are aweful and the owners all got rid of them. Chris is a mate of mine and will help you get it set up spot on.
goodluck

well l have had to be a tight ass and work to a tight budget and my suspension was shagged so l started installing a new set of rockcrawler springs and rancho shocks today seemd to be the best gear l could get on my budget. had to drop the freaken gas tank to get the drivers side shock out of the ass which was a pain didnt start till about 230 and ended up running outta time will have to do the front and tighten up a few things in the ass tomorrow lm just glad to have been able to do something to the old girl after so long oh and she got a new tool box in the rear last week too which will be quite handy some time in the next couple of weeks lm thinken on droppen my second battery through the floor of the tub and replace a few bolts that have dissapeared from bar work or that are looken a bit worn
