    Pretty serious setup and I am between this and the Defined Engineering kit. And since you are a prerunner keep in mind you will need a slip yolk in your driveshaft with these systems.

    There is a red Tacoma from Team Shark Attack that used to race SNORE that ran the DMZ kit. MJP2 does run this Giant 64" kit.

    No. Not much is when you get to this level. You are going to have to weld in plates to box your frame etc to keep it from bending if you run this kit. Weld shock mounts and limit straps as well. Its a never ending cycle:D

    I have an early version of this kit from before it was offered as a bolt-on setup. Geoff at Giant makes a solid product and he's one of the nicest guys you could do business with.

    On my truck the suspension sits at about stock height, but with 2 batteries, 60 gallon fuel cell, 2 spares, and jack in the bed area I'm heavy in the rear.

    The ride is nice and the parts are stout. I tied the rear hangers together for added strength. It's a good idea but unless you're racing it's not something you'll need to worry about.
