That's what I was thinking was the best route.

I was thinking something similar to this would be a good option...




or maybe something like this:

I don't know how strong those would be though.

It's be only running lights. But still, theft is something I've been thinking about too. Hell, I guess I can always just bolt it to the bed.

the greater amount of travel makes for a smooth ride... if in so cal, feel free to come out to the races when we are out and we can see about giving you a ride...

pound for pound, the price for the Engage kit is pretty good...

the bumpers are also made by Engage...

Ok, here is something that has been on my mind. I am getting a custom bumper made, similar to the AP but thicker. Would that be too much weight for the front with a kit like this? I just see everyone running the baja style bumpers and didnt know if you have to run something like that.

yah, that's fine... the lower arms of the Engage kit are boxed and beefy as hell...

the design of the production kit is based on the Engage race trucks, 1482, 1492, and 1412...

all of the primary chase trucks for the team are running the same kit that is being offered, so there is quite a bit of faith in the product...

and, as many of the so-cal TW members will tell you, we pretty much take these trucks out at least once or twice a month, so there has been plenty of real world testing...

So would you say the extended travel Icons would or would not work with the LT kit?

5-8635 - Extended Travel Coil-over Shock Kit

that would not work with long travel...

the Engage kit is designed with King coilovers, so you're best bet is to go that route...
