I hadn't heard of Batch Racing before. I added their link on my LT Info thread with a disclaimer that I haven't heard from from folks running the kit.

Right now i do not have any pictures of the 6 lug LT kit on this computer, but i do of my tundra kit which is exactly the same other then the front lower bushing mount is about 1/2" smaller on the Tacoma then it is on the tundra.

Welcome to TW -- glad you joined! I'm sure you'll have plenty of questions thrown at you so I'll start.

What brought about the change from the tube UCAs on the Tundra to the boxed ones on the Tacoma kit?

The kit looks pretty stout. What material/thickness is used on those arms, and do you have any diagrams of the internal bracing?

Looking forward to seeing the new LT kit installed and in use!

-Mike

Well i make both tube uppers and square/boxed tube uppers for these kits. The boxed uppers are in my opinion stronger. I have raced with my good friend Dan Vance for many years and what i have learned is when you put a bend in a tube in a upper arm, it wants to keep bending. We had tube upper arms on his truck for a while and ever race we raced we would bend them some way or another. The reason i dont have square tubing uppers on my truck is because i had a lot of requests for tube uppers so i built the strongest (1.5" .120 4130) uppers i could and i wanted to test them and make sure they cleared the bucket. So i used my truck as a example.

I use nothing but 3/16" 4130 for the lowers and .120 4130 for the uppers.

here is a picture of the internal gusseting of the lower arms.
