its the one i bought, it did what i needed it to do. its not a hardcore offroad lift but if your just a non to moderate wheeler its a good deal...comes with an AAL and a 2"block for the rear. dropdown everything up front. and its decently priced.... id give it a thumbs up...

I have this kit on my 89 and I have had no issues. I took it out to this past deer season and went crazy in the pasture. Nothing broke, nothing came loose. Would recommend this to anyone trying to save a few bucks.

nothing is "bad" with it, but usually there is a reason things are more expensive...the non extended RAs are a big thing...

I wheeled the crap out of my TTB lift without extended arms and did just fine. They are nice to have as they add more down travel, but not required equipment to wheel. If you want a lift and don't have cash for an SAS, a basic TTB lift is plenty capable. I'd just avoid blocks in the rear.

If you are planning on spending that much, I would get a better kit. Skyjacker or BDS. Not to mention the fact that RC's radius arms are in the lower quality group of options.

Going crazy in a pasture, and doing what his pics show him on the rocks are two, completely, 100%, totally different things.

Why don't you give Christ at 4wheelcustoms.com a call and see what he can price together for you. Seems like buying that kit would be a waste for the blocks and addaleaf, and the RA drop down brackets. You could probably find a pretty good deal with 4WC with much better parts too.

Also, I'd ditch the ox locker, they're even way more expensive then an ARB is. I'd get an ARB over an oxlocker, and for 500 bucks less, a full carrier detroit, and for close to 700 less, a nice Aussie. All of them will perform just as well as an Ox, for a lot cheaper. And the plus side of the ARB is, you end up with OBA too, which definitely can come in handy.

I don't mean to offend anyone, but my advice is do not under any circumstances put a drop bracket lift on a truck you're going to wheel hard (I wouldn't have one at all). They put too much leverage on the frame; give it a nasty hit and you can end up with some pretty decent frame damage. I've seen it first hand, and I've seen it online. IMO, they are in the same class as blocks.

My favorite TTB kits are BDS and Rancho. BDS has the best warranty.

I agree about the drop brackets. ERAs are the way to go.

BDS and Rancho are both good kits. Since he is wanting 6 Rancho is out though.

i wouldnt buy that. Personally, if i was going to lift my ttb again i would hunt down a used kit with extended radius arms and go from there. Really, the only thing that i would actually want frmo a kit is the TTB drop brackets and the extended radius arms, maby the coils. If you can get that then i would prefer a shackle flip out back, it is better in every way than AALs and blocks.

but hey, id rather just hack the fenders away and use no lift at all.. so i guess im a bit of an extremist.

i think that it isnt AS critical to have extended radius arms out on the pasture slippin around in the mud than for rock climbing i agree 100% with Hopper in the fact that when rock climbing if you hit the drop bracket you could do a good amount of damage to the frame.. so if your mostly rock climbing and on a budget i say go with what SMurray said.... except for the hacking part

Just order the lift and fab some extended radius arms out of your stock ones,that's what I'm doing while i rebuild my transmission too.Should work pretty well,but I'm gonna beef the shit outta them and make them stronger than any aftermarket one.
