No; but why would you want to some dirty hooker travel I-beam set up when you can get some very nice, 14'' travel dual shock IFS sets ups from Camburg or TC?

call up giant. problem solved

what are you wanting to know exactly??? i dont get the point of this thread...

if you want a beamed truck just pick up a ranger off RDC and dont molest the tacoma, especially since it's an 06. i can't say i have ever seen a beamed 2nd gen. prolly a reason for that...

lol, cuz i want more than 13 inch of travel. I wanted to do somthing different with the truck. Everyone runs rangers. But i was talking to solo motor and they are trying to make a kit that will run 17 inch of travel. Plus there is nothing wrong with a dirty hooker just gotta double wrap lol. The plan is to get giants DD four link kit in the rear but i want to run at least 16 inch in the front. i was just wondering if anyone has ran the i beam kit.

Price range should be a deep pocket, it ain't cheap.

You're heading towards a very, very expensive path. Beams + links = you're gonna need a second vehicle for street duty unless you do some custom rear sway bar setup. Big picture is much more expensive than might expect.

If you're running terrain and speeds that necessitate that much travel, factor in the cost of a rollcage too. We don't want to lose a member.

those words do not mix

camburg says they have recently developed a race kit for the 2nd gens, but i'm not aware of anybody running it yet...

having said that, one should never run links in an un-caged truck or a front race kit in a un-caged truck. like cole said, it aint all about travel. how do you know you need more than 13" travel? you dont jump right into the deep end to learn to swim...

are the big travel numbers just to impress the bitches?

I watch all my buddies do this and do that and switch this and rebuild that, but unfortantly i dont make 40 bucks an hour like they do. I do have another DD though. 88 honda civic. feel like im going to get smashed in the thing but with the gas millage it gets i cant go wrong.

me personally I thought big travel numbers equaled a plush ride and you'd be able to push your truck faster. I later learned that I was way wrong. its all about shock valving and useable travel. personally if your on a budget I'd go with the engage kit. Hassim is a great guy who offers great customer service and really helped me out with my truck and educated me. my truck is my dd and handles pretty good on road and during panic situations its not the most horrible but also isn't the safest. my friend had a beamed and linked ranger. that truck handled horribly on the street. sure, its cool to be able to three wheel around a corner, and to impress so called "bitches" but in a panic situation links and beams are no bueno and i'd hate to see a member lose their truck or be seriously injured. also more useable travel whether it be beams, links, a race kit, what have you will = more speed which will require more gusseting on the frame and you'd definately want a cage in case hell breaks loose. and thats where your money pit will get larger. learn all you can and start off small and in stages, thats what I'm doing. sure you won't get the most out of your truck from the start which is what we all want, but you learn your limits and progress in stages which overall IMO is best in any sport or interest.
