WTB. RTE items

Hi, like everyone else I'd like to lift the 110.
At this time I have nothing and would welcome any used parts that might be setting in the back of your storage area.
Looking to do a 3" lift
These items go fast and I thought maybe I'd find better luck posting rather than chasing

Well would like to find as much as possible, arms,springs,cones.
I'll be the first to admit I'm not sure how to go about a lot of this.

Where in the Midwest are you? Anywhere near Chicago?
If I might make a recommendation; look at other lifted 110's. Look at the action shots. Get a plan of what you want your truck to do and let that dictate how to set it up.
I have some RTE rear upper shock mounts I've been sitting on just because I'm not sure if I want to use them or not. And I know as soon as I sell them I'll want to use them, LOL.

Well I fell for the 83 being sold here and others in a post asking for pics of their lifts.
Mainly my use will be on trails from expedition portal's site and daily driving.

I don't have 110 experience, mind you, but you may find 3" of lift overkill. Rule of thumb(at least for D1's and RRC's) is that 2" of lift doesn't require a ton of additional mods like corrected arms and driveshafts.
What's your goal tire size you want to run?

When you go much over 2" of lift you really need to do alot of other mods as well which equals alot more money. It sounds as if you are on a tight budget so a 2" lift (springs and shocks) and some 33's you are good to go. Also, with the higher the lift and larger tires comes the ability to break more stuff. IMHO.

no the one rovere brit has for sale,I really like the way it sits & after seeing Overlander's,RiftRover's,& Rugbier's in a previous post on lifts is when the decision was made to do the extra work.
At best thinking, figured someone had gone this route and decided it wasn't for them and maybe might be looking to recoop some of the $$$ involved in turn helping both of us in case I too have made a mistake.
