    American Motorsports is tired of hearing of long travel kits falling apart. So its time for American Motorsports to hit the 6 lug market by storm and build a 6 lug kit. So American Motorsports is looking for a person with a 05 and up 6 lug Toyota Tacoma that would be willing to prototype a 6in long travel kit. Kit will be sold a cost. Free install. Kit will be 6in over and include uppers, lowers and spindles. PM me if interested.

    Many questions to be answered. It will work with 2wd or 4wd. Longer axles will be needed to be purchased. I plan on using both stock CV's for cost savings.

    2. It will be a 5-6 inch over kit. I wont be doing any 3.5 over kits because Total Choas and Camburg have that market. Im not going to make a less quality product just to under cut these 2 companies to make a few bucks. Its not worth it to me. If you want a 3.5 over kit i would recommend one of these 2 companies. Im quality over quantity. I want to build a race kit that handles well on the street as it does in the dirt.
