Looks amazing. ...I say you do a canti setup. Get yourself 20" of travel to utilize that front end. You've already gone big...why stop now?

I'm gonna post up some more pics soon, I've been moving and getting ready for school to start so life has been busy busy. Right now I am finishing up the loose ends like getting my spare secured, moving the battery and reinforcing my fiberglass... just a bunch of small things. The kit drives so well on the road I have been daily driving it and love it.

Rear LT is on the way, the two big items have been purchased and I am so ready to be done with the stock rear suspension.
Here are a few of the better pics that have been taken of the truck while I was saving up for the rear LT

Is there any room for improvement if switching to an engine cage or is this kit basically at full potential with stock coil bucket?

To my knowledge, the kit is limited on up travel by the inner fender. With an engine cage and removed inner fender the kit would then be at full potential and yeild 16" of functioning 4wd. With the inner fender I am bumped and strapped at 14".

The uppers and lowers are designed to bolt onto the stock mounting locations so keeping the stock bucket would probably be ideal. But if you are going to engine cage you could probably make new mounts and cut out the coil bucket.

I will say, the 14" of travel my 4wd kit pulls now really pushes my rear lt to its limits. I want links and this kit rocks.
