    Starting: LX 470 family (on/off road) adventure rig

    Welcome to MUD! I completely agree with DirtDawg for the fact that you will be putting a lot of armour on the rig. However, if you are able to get aluminum bumpers, you may be ablet to keep and maintain the AHC. I upgraded my TB's and rear springs along with the AHC lift, and I was able to...
