I have a 2wd locked runner that Im thinkin about LTing and i know that most guys run prerunners with the leafed LT rears, mainly is a coiled rear gonna be enough to handle the speed? or will i need to convert to a leaf setup or do 4 link rear.

I have only seen about 2 or 3 3rd gen runners running LT, one being BruceTS.

Ive been pondering the conversion of a 2wd to 4wd but I might like going LT more and running it fast.

Sorry for my ignorance.

thanks

You'll still be a long way from the desert. The LT kit would still come in handy for some wheelin in the mountains though... assuming your 4WD

take your damn body lift on before you do anything. if you actually do go runnin through the desert, it will be very easy to make your car into two peices. body lifts are stupid anyways lol

Why don't you just ask Bruce then? I know that him and Lance run coils in the rear with just smoothies and no issues. You may have to get creative in your shock mounts but I would imagine it would be easier than doing a leaf swap.

Body lifts are not stupid. Just not adviseable in every case and if you're not into hucking your rig then you should be fine.

there's a bit of a difference IMHO between a 4Runner "hard top" (Gen2+) with a body lift and a fully caged cab with what appears to be a cage welded to the frame , no bed, what appears to be a caged front (i.e. no inner engine "fenders")....

Im sorta a noob on the LT subject but from what I can gather an LT setup that is run "baja like" with OUT a cage will soon REQUIRE a cage...
