If it was me I would go with an Icon lift kit... then add a few options below...

Then I would add One Up Offroads front ALA arms. They increase your turning radius, tighten up your steering, get rid of the factory wander, and no bumpsteer.

Then I would add the One Up Offroad traction bars/blocks. These won't sacrifice ride quality, get rid of any axle wrap, keep your tranny happy, and will not affect your wheel travel if you offroad.

I would call this guy and talk about your options....

(888) 776-8699

2001 - 14" OUO 525 - 38x15.5x20 Toyo & 20x12 Weld Cheyenne's. Hybrids, 38R, BTS, Spearco, Terminators..
