I am torn between lifts...Looks Like TG and WAB FAB are the same Kit, All Pro looks good as well.....who makes the best kit or rather the most idiot proof kit out there?

I pulled the Solid Axel on the Donor 85 Runner today....Time for some cutting Grinding, knuckle rebuild, 4.88's and an Aussie Locker...

I have my flare suit on now...just wanna know what the man on the street or on the trail has had the best success with...:grinpimp:

I call Bull. I'm running their 4" rears. They held their lift for about a season, then settled about 2" on the last run, but they sit the same height. I personally like the springs, and would recomend them to anyone who asked.

As far as a whole kit (and this may sound contradictory), I would go with Marlin because of their customer service.

Well a guy in my club just put tg 5 inch front and rear and he flexed the front tire up and when he come down the springs held the flex slightly. he has since gone to marlin springs and hasnt had that problem.

FWIW, the trail gear kit is the most complete. Quality is comparable across the board, but all of the small details are covered in the TG kit, except for front cross member bracing fore/aft. I worked the springs hard with no issues before turning the truck over to the owner and have heard nothing but good things since.

Marlin kit includes a steering box frame brace and hardware..the others dont..Marlin also includes Koyo and NGK bearings in the rebuild kits not some chinese stamped shit


EDIT: what TRE's does TG use? I saw some the other day and they looked pretty skimpy

I bought a set of tie rod ends from trail gear to try em out. I have a marlin hy steer kit and when I put the two rod ends next to eachother the marlin ends are almost twice as big in height and where the ball is in the joint. But they have been doing pretty good so far.

Here comes the pissing contest. :shaking:
