first off i do plenty of wheeling, and yes i know that an sas would be the shit, but i am not sure that i can come up with that kind of money. Now i know that an LT is alot of money but i belive that its downey that puts a kit out for around 2 grand. The 4in lift goes for like 1,400 installed. and i had no clue that i could fit 33''s with no rubbing. I am all ready getting a rear locker installed, and getting sliders due to the last trip, in wich i posted pics. but i thank everyone for actual advice and not just saying get out there and learn. I am asking for some sound advice as to weather you guys would go with lift or LT.
no way lt is only 2k, no way no how.
and its worthless without the rear done as well. and if you really use it for fast driving you need a cage for safety and so your cab doesnt falla part...and then...well you get the idea.
BTW - the rear glass on these things is a dealer only item and costs $427.19 (unless you get lucky enough to find one in a junkyard, but they get snatched up QUICK), and if you 'wheel, you WILL break them.
x2 on the armor. all these guys talk about sas like it can be done over the weekend in your garage for 300 bucks. truth is its not gonna happen and completely unecessary if you are still at an armor-less level of wheeling. if an SAS is out of your price range then so is long travel. long travel is as expensive and difficult of an undertaking as doing a solid axle. IMO, get armor and a coilover lift, tires, and lockers if you need them in that order. you will be very happy with that kind of setup. the majority of the guys in this club run setups like this and can do ALOT with them.

Ummm - dude a coilover lift is going to be BIG bucks for his truck (he has torsion bars). But for the rest of it - yeah.
That's the setup I have, and it will take me anywhere I want to go with something close to a daily driver. The hardest trail I've done is Moab Rim, and it was right at the capabilities of the truck and/or my driving skill. I'm going to Moab again this weekend to do some trails I haven't done before, hopefully, I'll have an even better understanding of the truck's and my capabilities!
LT is too much for you, to get it right, its nice for trails you can get great flex and movement out of them, but like 4grand or more to get it right. The 4in lift kit basically allows you to clear 33x12.5s, no travel added, and it makes you tippy, which gets you body panels higher to clear shit. You can fit 33s with no lift,Look at tc's truck, if you get different rims and a 2in body with some new springs and bj spacers you can fit the 12.5s with minimal rubbing.
sliders and skid plates, lift it then lock it.
SAS is when you are breaking your axles or flopping your truck because of not having enough flex, a buddy of mine can run all the trails i run with his stock yoter on 31s. With body armor youll feel invincible
For years I have had intermittent power issues on my OBD1 3.0. Idles ok but sometimes when I am at partial throttle I can feel the engine dragging, so I floor it and it revs but acceleration is half of what it should be. then next thing you know it feels fine. I will gain and loose power...
I didn't see this fix listed .
I have a 93 P/U with the 22Re. I was having a problem with my idle speed changing by itself.
What I found out was the O ring on the idle screw was so worn out the vacuum from the engine was pulling the screw down a little at a time.
I went to ACE hardware and...

Starts right up when the key is turned. tapping the pedal gives a puff of smelly dark black smoke, keep it down a bit and let up and one gets the bang from the pipe (after burn). Going up a incline it...
