Hey everyone, Ive been lurking for a while but finally registered and now I have a few questions, I'm definitely getting a truck soon, and if all goes well it'll be a titan. I'm not a fan of stock trucks and if I did get a titan I would quickly want to change some things. What I most importantly want is suspension. I don't want to break the bank but wouldn't mind saving if I had to. What I want is a set up that I wouldn't necessarily thrash but could put to decent use every once in a while that is still somewhat low to the ground and wider than stock. What I want is the prerunner look with an aggressive stance, flared fenders, big wheels that are just stuffed into a somewhat low sitting truck. Before I registered I searched and searched and didn't come up with much. I definitely don't want something thats all show and no go or even compromises performance for looks but seeing as I wouldn't offroad on a regular basis, looks are high on my list. Does anyone know how I could do this. When I first started looking I thought a mini lift with fenders, wheel spacers, and 35's could work but it seems this is looked down upon because of its "poserness" and the fact that it would suck off road, another thing I'm wondering is if a CST LT kit with stock spindles would work. Basically I know what I want but not where to find it, hopefully someone can steer me in the right direction.

Thanks

That is a nice kit, I came across that but I'm wondering how much lift the MT gives. Also what would someone venture to say an estimated price would be for everything from wheels and tires to glass and installation. Lastly is this even out yet, its not on the PRG website?

Does this seem like one of my only options?

tons of options and in first post, you've listed 2 drastically different ones .... mini-lift, fenders, and 35s would improve on the stock look but do little for performance but is relatively inexpensive .... relative to the CST or PRG longer travel kits which obviously you can beat the hell out of, but spend a lot more $$ on

there are tons of options in between those two, all over this section too, you can combine a number of things to get what you're looking for .... spindle lift/coilovers/deaver pack/glass fenders is probably what you'd want to do, you can keep the front at 4" and go past 6" if so inclined......

I think the spindle lift setup that SDTitan mentioned sounds the best for you based on what you are describing. Make sure you buy a 2wd though because you can't use the spindles on a 4wd. Kartman has this setup and he beats it up pretty good with very few problems. Do a search for posts on Kartman's set up and you should be able to find some video of him using it to see what its capable of.

Thanks for the suggestions, does anyone know how I can increase the front width? Can/should I run front wheel spacers (I heard this is a bad idea), also can I run the CST LT kit with stock spindles to make it 4" lower?

stay away from spacers.
stock spindles wont work. uniball vs balljoints
The CST LT kit does not give a lot of lift anyway

Most of the wheels sold that fit the Titan stick out just fine, so much that many will rubb without some help.
Spacers = Bad!
