Thanks....

The shock hoops are to initially reinforce the coil bucket, but I'm definitely welding some tabs on the LCAs. I'll prob be the first AP kit running bypasses.

Just went on Vacation, so I didn't have time to shoot any more pics yet. It's the same height as before though. I didn't preload the suspension too much. CV angles are much improved.

Truck looks good man. I thought about doing the second bypass when I had the AP kit but I was told it might not work well. So I just dropped the project and looked for another kit. GL with your project can't wait to see it and you are for sure the first person I know that will have a second shock with the AP kit.

Just curious what the reason was that it might not work well?

So did you get rid of your AP kit just to get bypasses?

I talked with Tim at DMZ and AP as well about adding a second bypass and was told it will take alot of work to make it work properly because of the AP LCA design.

Reason I got rid of the AP kit was because it would not keep up with my rear LT setup and being able to add a bypass was also a plus.
