    now you just need to incorporate manual locking hubs, go 2 inch over kit and gain 14 inches of travel. If thats even possible

    A 2in over kit youd be looking more around 12-13in travel. And im not aware of any manual locking hubs for these year trucks unless you swap to different hubs. Anything can be done, but with new hubs comes new geometry and the design would almost be starting fresh again. The price difference to get the manual hubs setup would buy you a lot of gas money if that was your concern :thumbsup:

    Hello, can you pm me a price for the 4x4 kit installed? Trying to get a ball park figure for the kit, axels, spindle, shock, and install. Would like to add bypass but it's probably over the budget for now.
    Thanks

    Did the mounting points of the bypasses change from the earlier picture on this page? In the first picture the bypass looks like it's mounted on the plane as the coilover. On this picture the bypass looks like it's mounted at an angle. Are my eyes playing tricks on me?

    That looks insane, can't believe the price for the kit! Insane deal for a great kit. The quote I got was on par with another shop installing a TC kit. That really helped narrow down the choices. Might be worth the road trip!

    I just took it out for a quick test at pismo, oh my gawd it's so smooth and handles biggg drops and whoops with ease.

    Thiss^ Blang knows how hard we push the Dirt Design kits. Now you need some secondaries:cool:

    It's a bit of a drive if I have a issue but kinda looks like they have it pretty dialed. From the photos I've seen you 2 definitely push your trucks

    His installed price was better than the TC kit or camburg installed and I really like that it has fabed spindles and looks generally bullet proof. Almost done with the house refi and have a good idea how to invest the savings!

    All you need is the +3.5" TC axles. Poly perfomance and TC both have them readily available and they are strong! Heat treated 4340 FTW :thumbsup:

    I just took my truck out for a second round of testing, it took having 4 people and going 60 to hit bump through a big G-Out at the dunes. I love how my truck rides and I know Blang is jelly of the 4wd... But I'm jelly of how much more ground clearance he can pull at bump :eek:

    When I pull the trigger just going to drive up with a handful of cash and pick it up when it's dune/desert ready. Have another bonus check hitting in a few months so might just cash it and be done, savings account will just have to wait! This forum has definitely cost me more than I should admit
