6-lug TC Rear long travel hybrid. Possible?

Well I've been lookin at LT kits and found some I like, but none offer much for the rear. except for leaf packs.

I found a rear kit that TC produces with a shock hoop but it is only made for the 5 lug. I didnt think it would matter much but after asking around I found that the shackles and other parts differ between the 5-lug and 6-lug.

Leaving the hoop from the TC kit the only part that I would be able to use(Thankfully they sell them separately)

So I looked around for other companies that possibly made rear kits with hoops but found none, but came across a deaver leaf pack from Wheeler's Off-Road and started to wonder if I would be able to merge the 2 kits together.

Here are the two kits. Granted the 5-lug's leafs are below the axle and the 6-lug leafs are mounted above the axle.





I want to know what you guys think about the possibility of merging the two and what parts from both kits I would need.

If you think I'm just plain crazy for thinking about it then thanks

And if you guys have anything else to contribute please do

dmz has a spring under kit that uses deaver, the deavers made for a tacoma don't fit if you want' lt. engage also has kits but you would have to pm them for price. making a shock hoop is not that big of a deal, getting the correct angles for the shocks is where you need to pay attention.



I say you are crazy. total chaos ppppfffftttt

The problem is you will half to cut into your bed if you want to make it strong enough to hold up to long travel, i know a guy that bent his frame pretty badly from not doing a cross bar.

you will have to cut in the bed just to get the shock hoops in and the shocks, you would run a 16" shock that will reach you bed rail.

look at this from engage, this truck is the same as mine just has the bed.

Giant Motorsports makes a bolt-on spring-under long travel kit and bed cage for the late model Tacoma.

http://giantmotorsports.com/content/view/84/104/

Don't expect the installation to be easy with any of these kits (Giant, DMZ, Engage, etc.), but they work great when set up properly!

TC FTMFW lol
DMZ-way overpriced IMO ..great work though
Engage-pretty cheap for the travel u get

You CAN put he kit onto ur truck.... as proven in my Thread about this for the minis. i dont think it will be bolt on ...and u might have to drill holes in the fame.

I WOULDNT recommend this because i know the minis have very diffrent things...such as drive shaft. i didnt have to have my driveshaft messed with. the 6 lug guys ahve to have the drive shaft extended i think or something like that.

Just take it to a shop...it will be less headaches....i can already tell u u will run into problems trying to put this kit on a 6lug ...

Try richer racing...they have a bolt in bed hoops! but pretty any shop can make ur shock hoops bolt in
