The dodge diesel just raced this weekend at BAP and finished 9th out of 52 trucks!! And that was with a messed up turbo only putting out 11-15psi instead of 30-40psi. The engine temp was at 250 all weekend with peak temps around 275 (higher boost would have dropped the engine temp, magic of the diesels) and so its getting rebuilt with possibly dual turbos and engine tune. I think he'll do one more race then retire it to be the luxo-runner is was built to be. At least hopefully he does because racing messes up ALL trucks and its too nice to be beat to death.



Of course!! Full droop and full steering the banjo bolt head has 3/4" clearance on a 600lb spring.
that is awesome man. glad to have you here in the forums. when do you find out about pricing for the taco kit?

Steve, you say the D-Max is getting a new front end, just curious what's wrong with the current setup or will you be switching it to beams too?

One issue is no one wants to make a heavy enough spring. He doesnt want to loose much travel by changing the motion ratio.....sooooo why not go TT on it? hahah Yep..

I tried contacting a mod about posting prices, so not sure if its cool

If i can get an order of 5 people i can do a small run of kits at $3k ea.

Included in the kit:
-boxed upper arms with 1"uni and delrin bushings

-boxed lower arms with 1"uni and rubber bushings
*lower delrin is an option, but takes special alignment conditions

-uniball adapter for the stock uprights
*Includes double shear steering tabs with corrected steering

-outer heim steering (tierods+heims)
*This will be threaded into the stock inner tierod

-extended stainless brakelines

-limit straps + upper weld on frame tab

-upper shock mount

-grade 8 bolts


SOOOOO whos interested?
