So I am running options through my head as to what I want to do with the front... here are my 2 options:

1: I currently have a pro-comp bracket lift installed on my 4x4. I also have extended 2.5'' Radflo coilovers in the front. I could keep the bracket lift and run the PRG MT kit and just use the same shocks on the stock coil bucket... Later on I could swap out the bracket to lower the front but then I would need to either build a shock hoop with different shocks or use the stock coil bucket with different shocks. + to this would be that I would only need to mount the MT kit in and I would be good to go on the shocks I currently have...

2: Remove the pro-comp bracket lift and install the PRG MT kit with different shocks. This route means that I would have to go glass in the front as well as buying new shocks to fit the stock coil buckets. + to this is that I would be able to sell the bracket lift along with the extended shocks.

With either option I am selling the PRG UCA's I currently have installed...

I am leaning more towards just getting the MT kit and using my bracket lift... What do the pre-runner guys think? Would I need to run glass in the front if I used the bracket lift? Fiberglass seems to be a crap shoot because they all seem to fit like @$$...

Either way I am getting a MT kit for this because I want more travel out of the front... 35'' BFG all-terrains are coming next month on 17's so I need to have the suspension ready!

Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

I've never seen a MT kit on a bracket lift? But im not sure how it would conflict with each other. I would removed the Bracket lift, sell it, and use the money to get coil overs. IIRC you can use the stock coil bucket with an 8" SAW on the MT Kit.

You can run with stock fenders and strap it so it doesn't go near the fender :teethmast

A lot of people have glass and a lot do it with ease, if you don't know what to do, a lot of guys on here will be more than happy to help :)

The problem is if I remove the bracket lift then I am stuck with the coilvers I have now which are meant for a bracket lift... The only option would be to have coilovers built and shipped with the MT kit and then remove the bracket lift and sell the bracket lift and bracket lift coilovers...

Hmm, maybe Greg can modify the Coilovers you have? I don't know what the bracket lift looks like compared to the non bracket lift c/o.

It is the length of the shock shaft and the bracket lift c/o is a lot longer than the normal one...

run the lift with it. i THINK titan- is doin the same thing as you, lift kit with m/t kit. i'm not 100% sure though. but i know he put up a feeler for his prg uca's in the prerunner thread which means one thing, the other ucas for the m/t kit lol.

glass fenders would look kinda funny with the lift cause you'd have all that space anyways plus the flare of the fenders, but than again, your tires are gonna be 3"? wider on each side soooo....cholo anyone?

The advantage to running the bracket lift with a mid or long travel kit is that you can run an 8" coilve which allows you to pull more travel out of the kit. Most setups are about a 2 to 1 ratio. With a 2 to 1 ratio, 2" of travel for every 1" of shaft, means that you can get 16" of travel out of the shock so you would be able to get the full travel out of the kit you run.

But would you recommend hard offroading (not extremely hard, but decent) with a Bracket Lift and MT?

Yes. In the pics I still had the 3" block from the pro comp lift installed. I'm now running just drop shackles and icons on the rear. 35's clear easily with the shackles set on the lowest setting.
