    Well it has a slight bow. It still goes into the alignment so I'll replace that later.

    THe lights weren't going to come in time.

    when the bumper hit were doing 35ish and then when the tire hit we were doing 25.

    The truck has been running. It just can't get aligned the right way until I replace the the spindle and lower ball joint thing that bolts to the spindle. Also i have to weld to alignment tabs on because mine are flat lol.
    Total everything is like $300 so its not that much. I just had to put off the lights for longer.

    Considering thats all custom mounted you could use it on your truck. Most race kits don't bolt in like the TC, Engage, and Camburg. and all three of those are all great kits proven to take the abuse.

    i dont want lt. just a bolt on kit not made by TC. i want a small amount of options. tc monopolized the 05+ 5 lug market

    its cuz most people that have 5 lugs don't run lt. The only ones that do are people that are going to race because they like the small trucks. and they do custom stuff.

    Side note do you think there is a market for a Fox or King Replacement coilover for the the 05+ 5-Lugs? Like the ones they make for the 6-lugs?

    at the moment no. the only manufacturers that make 5 lug compatible C/Os for 05+ are IVD and Racerunner SAWs, and the only ppl i know of that makes UCAs is TC for 5 luggers. but i hear some mumbling about Built right UCAs making some for 5 luggers. if they made Coilovers that replaced stock for 5 lugs id be all over it without needing new UCAs

    Thats what I'm asking. Would people buy a Fox or King replacement c/o for the 5-lugs? I'm doing market research for something.
