LT/ truck fully caged with deavers, 3. Full blown 1450 truck...
I was all set on going LT till I got to pre run a race in one. It was fuckin incredible how you could just fly 60+ over stuff that would destroy any other truck.
Then one bolt broke and the front coil came out, ripped the brake line... then the rear caliber ripped the weld off the axle and destroyed the brake line there... we barely limped back to camp and I started to realize just how slippery that slope is from 7-10 ish grand to get the LT complete on to the 25K you'll end up putting into it...
anyways, I'm in the same boat OP. I'm gonna get my Mid up front & I really want to go LT in rear just from the awful way the rear handles stock. Not gonna race it, but like to screw around sometimes and climb around most of the time.
or, I was thinking of getting the new leaf pack with mid travel rear and putting in hydraulic bump stops? any opinions?
