L/T advice please

So I'm getting ready to go L/T front & rear. Need some advice for the rear. I want to keep as much bed space as possible for bikes and stuff. Does anyone make a basic bolt on L/T rear kit or is it gonna be pretty much all custom??? please give your thoughts and input as to what you'd recommend, steer clear of ect...

Hmm, I think Jerry (BAMF) makes some weld on shock relocators, other than that I think you'll need a cage in the bed.

If you want real LT in the rear you're going to need a bed cage.
You can get "bed saving" cages but you're going to have shocks coming through somewhere. Lots of guys have bedcages that leave enough room for stuff, its not like you have to have a full tube bed.

I don't mind having bed cage, just so long as I have room to put some gear, dirt bike, etc... Just looking for some opinions & ideas. I'm hopping to start the build within the next couple months.

Search cantilever long travel. More expensive but takes up ZERO bed space.

If you swap out for a wider rear end, you can put your shocks outside the frame rails and keep almost all of your bed space. Also since you are in SoCal, there are plenty of shops and quality garage fabricators in the area that can build you a bedcage for a good price. Here's mine. Just need to sheet metal the wheel wells back in and I have virtually my entire bed.

Cantilever system would be bad ass, but can't find anything currant. All the threads I've found are from like 3 years ago. You have any idea who makes a kit?

Thanks, I'll look at my options.

Give BTF Fabrication a call. They have built a lot of cantilever setups and countless bedcages and they do realllllly clean work at a reasonable price. Here's a thread with reviews on them... http://www.dezertrangers.com/vb/shop-reviews/119949.htm

Looks like a sweet setup, I'm a first gen. Isn't the rear wider on the second gen giving you a little more room for the shocks to be in the fender well like that? Or does it rub during heavy articulation?
