What bumper are you going with? Should have joined the bandwagon with Bugslee and I, with the Demello! You and I would have still had the better LT kit though.

I am going with the Pelfreybuilt plate bumper. I have been waiting a while ever since Tyler said he was going to make an 05-11 version of his 2012 bumper.

I dont recall ever seeing this bumper but it looks pretty solid. Almost a hybrid of my CBI and the Demello.

How would you say your rear suspension keeps up with the front? When I go with this kit up front I wont be doing any ridiculous desert racing or anything, and was just wondering how your rear setup does on most terrain, if you would make any tweaks if you were to do it again?

Well I originally had some OME Dakar leafs and now I have All-Pro expo springs. Performance is about the same on those. What I would look into is going with hydraulic bumps instead of rubber bumps like the Timbrens, which is what I currently have.

The next step in the suspension is going with 14" 700 pound coils, hydraulic bumps front and rear, bypasses up front and possibly armortechs shackle flip when they release a set for the all-pro leafs.

Cool, thanks for the info man. Will be looking out for the updates. Where would you order the hydraulic bumps?

I would go with Icon. They do not have bumps for the front yet and their rear bumps just came onto the market.

14" coils?? You have a 16" on their right now. Why would you go down in size. Also You are unable to bump off the lower arm while running a bypass, its one or the other with our TC kit. I'm in the same boat, thinking I'll run the bypass and basically use that as my bump.

Also, I just threw on some 18" 650lb springs, they ride great, very little preload.

How much extra weight do you have up front? How much preload do you have? I got the wrong info on what length coils I have but I will be adding another 100 pounds to the front once I get a winch on there. I already have 2 inches of preload and that is with a light bumper and no winch.

You should look into doing some custom shocks hoops in the rear like i was running with the expos, your shock location will always be the limiting factor on our rears

My build lol i'll post some pics though

Now SUA Set up... King is building me new shocks right now



If your looking for something to keep up with the front you have to gain more uptravel, only way to do that is move the shock higher, you'll notice much less bucking and being able to soak up the bigger bumps off road

I have a demello bumper up front, and the same TC kit as you are running. I have maybe a 1/2" preload with the springs. I was running the same amount of preload as you and I had a stock bumper on my truck!
