    L/C Advanced handling sells them, I think that they are the only ones that sold a "bolt on" deal, which is something that I would not want anything to do with. Was in Moab in '95, saw two 40's running these set ups, both trucks broke bolts on the trail. Welding this set up is the only way to go.

    I run, as do many people I know, the MAF kit, works for me, and others.

    I think that Classic Cruisers sells something that uses the orignal rear spring hangers, which are parts that you already have on your truck. Do a search for shackle reversal and read on..you should find pleanty of info...

    If all you are wanting is a couple of inches of lift, sure, if you wheel it, these are big ass rock finders, owned one truck with it, never own another.

    IIRC the MAF is an LCAH kit installed backwards with springs flipped for better approach angles. Have done these and they aren't as bad as all that. If it's for a DD or plowrig it'll be fine. If it's for a rockcrawler then bolt-on isn't the way to go anyway.

    Not worth the time or money unless you do it right. Check out the tech links here for info. I would not piss on MAF if they were on fire much less buy their product.
