    Here is a link: http://batchracing.com/

    Take a look. The price of the kit is $1800 for 15" of travel. Heimed uppers for $300 and Uniball lowers with spindles plate for $400 making the total for everything they offer for their 05+ Taco LT $2500 which is much less than Camburg and Total Chaos and very close Engage.

    Does anyone have any input or anything to say about this kit?

    Yeah, I think Thomas the Train got some. They look great, almost as nice as the emperor's new clothes...

    ^ your link just took me to discussion topics. I know you get what you pay for I am just curious if anyone ran this setup. On TTORA it seemed like quite a few first gens ran it and showed them doing your typical LT desert running, then again those are just pics not carnage.

    And steve http://www.trifectaoffroad.com/2005-2009-Toyota-Tacoma-Engage-Offroad-Long-Travel-Suspension/ ....you were close its 2250 which is a great price but its awfully wide...then again I dont know what the width of the Batch Racing is so I will bit my tongue on that :eek:

    Things dont need to look "nice" to be fully functional so that comment was kinda stupid.

    NOOOOOO!!!!!

    even if you wanted to buy the kit, i dont think you could. the guy disappeared off the face of the earth w/ peoples money, before he finished making a product for them. he stole money, plain and simple. plus, LT kits he as made are junk: shitty welds, bad geometry, wont align, poor customer service... the list goes on and on...

    here is one such horror story...

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/long-travel-suspension/99625-finally-bought-some-long-travel.html

    stick w/ the tried and true... TC, camburg, engage

    engage is prob the best bang for your buck

    Ok I have to say that I apologize guys. I did a search on Batch Racing and did not come up with anything because I did not search "properly". Its the second or third post on the search and I did not click on it right away kind of just skimped right over it. Mods can delete this thread please and thanks

    Ha, I was cracking up. I couldn't believe someone could say that(type that?) with a straight face. :laughing:

    We are all here to learn, and teach, so no worries. Glad we could help.

    Ktm, youre definitely right, the more bad press about BR the better.

    Hey man.... dont buy from Batch. Im going through claims on paypal because of Batch Racing. Paypal actually just took over the claim an hour ago since they were waiting on Batch's response so it looks like i'll most likely be getting my money back. Stick with camburg, total chaos or engage.

    ya, stick with camburg, total chaos and engage if your rich and have lot's of money to dump into your truck! If your trying to build a truck on a budget(everybody is), go invest your money into a welder and a tube bender and your project will never be at the mercy of a fab shop. Welding is basic!
