The "best" kit, based on quality, warranty, and positive reviews, is likely the OME Medium Duty kit at a cost of $840+shipping. Keep in mind that you'll also want to purchase an upgraded steering damper for $90+shipping.

A more economical kit (which I used) is the Terrafirma medium duty kit at a cost of ~$550+shipping. The steering damper for this kit is $55+shipping. The quality of the kit is great, it provides a great compromise between off-road capability and on-road manners. I've put mine through it's paces and it has yet to let me down.

Provided that you have decent mechanical knowledge, a good set of hand tools, and a jack/jackstands capable of lifting the truck high enough, the install is a breeze. There's a pretty good how-to on Youtube. Having the job done at a shop should run between $600-$800.

If your on a budget don't even bother with a lift. Buy good tyres in the standard size instead.
$ for $ a decent set of MT/AT tyres will get you much further down the trail than any flex-o-matic double HD lift kit with much less compromise and consequences. Lifts have domino effects on just about everything.
Next big purchase should be a winch.

If you really want a cheap lift, coil spacers are very inexpensive.....but they won't help much on the trail.

Keep your eyes open on the various Land Rover boards and Craigslist. You may be able to snag used quality springs and shocks for a bargain price.

You might also look on EBay. There's several guys like Paul Grant around who break apart Rovers for a living.

Try discoweb.org -- - Land Rover Forums - Land Rover Enthusiast Forum

You can also put what you're looking for in the Wanted section on sites, if someone has something they're selling you want they'll usually give you a holler.

The previous posters ideas about getting good tires an a winch is good advise, too. Remember, practice makes perfect. I've seen guys in fairly stock Rovers outwheel guys with the lifts and the bling more than once.

Hi Guys

I have a similar problem to the chap that started this thread, I live in the land of far far away and no LR parts sold here! Shipping is a wicked price! Papua New Guinea in other words.
What is the opinion of the coil spacers? I dont do much "hardcore" off-roading and was wondering what the pro's opinions are. Safe, unforeseen complications, etc. Oh yes, I'm putting on a set of 245/75 R16 M/T.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers
Brett
