The LE's could be set in AWD ... so you could daily drive in AWD , where the others were a 4x4 that was only to be used in slick or off road purposes ....

I went with the OE Rancho Off roads up front and the Rancho RS9000XL 9 way adjustable rears . Being able to adjust the stiffness in the rear seemed like a good setup for towing or hauling .... I will post once I get them on ....

I get parts at cost so I got all 4 under $400
