Also the defined kit doesn't require new front hangers. Giant, Engage, and DMZ all require cutting them and welding the new ones farther up where the frame actually dips down, so those sit lower.
The poly bumps in the stage 1 kit are great but they look like they use up alot of uptravel, i would go with a hydro bump or the light racing jouncestops down the road, like you said its great because you can build it in stages.
With whatever setup you get i would pick up the shackle crossmember, the hangers are pretty weak, mine are getting pretty bent up(granted i also cut out the crossmember) but its still an affordable precaution.

Got your pm and the photos thanks for the info. Looks like a great kit I'm still questioning its use in the slower more technical stuff. I could be worried about nothing and it would work fantastic in all terrain types.

I was just reading that the other day. I think he said he was scrapping it and starting over. There are a couple other build threads out there similar. Nice to look at but far from reality.

Been talking to the fab guy I think we are going to go a bit of a custom route and see how it works out.

SUA is not off the table but I'm going to explore a SOA set-up with shock hoops and see where that leads me.

Blackhawk said he was looking at a similar set-up for his GF's truck as well.

Having a mid-travel truck I think if I can get 11-13 out of a SOA set-up keep my ground clearance , be good for rock crawling/technical terrain, not have to cut my bed to shit, no glass required, still be able to tow and haul a reasonable load and have greatly improved performance over stock for higher speed desert stuff all while building it as a bolt on kit, that will be the ticket for me.

We will see what I end up with though the journey isn't over.

That's a good choice, I got 10" of travel on my brothers truck with a king 2.5" 10" and it handles amazing.
