    Thanks guys!

    Just a FYI, if you go the mid travel route and do the TC hoop/second shock, you lose your front sway bar. Not a bad thing for a trail rig but kinda sucks for a DD (which mine is). If money is no object, go LT! If you like to work on your own truck you can install a mid travel kit in a day by yourself and would only set you back $1500-$1900 depending on whether you get remote resi's or not. If your are not sold on TC UCAs, Camburg makes a set of UCA that are functionally equivalent but 200 bux cheaper.

    I already removed it :D and I love it!! Lol yeah I saw that they used the sway bar hole on the lca for the secondary mount.. And yes cost is
    a concern.. And I'd do the installation myself..
    Would just like to know how well a high performance front mid travel does...

    Well a single shock TC LT setup is going to cost ya ~4 grand not including fenders. My front setup cost less than half of that and I don't think switching to a LT will double my performance (but again...I have no comparison). That being said, of course I'd rather have the LT setup, but for me it just boils down to what you use your truck for and bang for buck.

    Thank ya thank ya :D

    LONG TRAVEL? lol Get the LT kit out front then your "true" LT. Haha. Nice truck though!


    EDIT: How much did your rear setup cost you minus labor? I am going with a simple mid travel out back this spring.

    Well everyone who just has the front LT call's their truck Long Travel even if they just have a midtravel rear or worse yet, just an AAL....
    I have the rear LT setup so why can't I call it Long Travel? Besides, I did say "more to come" at the end of my OP :cool:

    Oddly enough, Giant has their prices posted on their website
    Shocks are $1325, and LT kit is $1300

    Gosh, sorry man! Didn't mean to offend you:p lol


    I could go LT out back but I use the bed of my truck a lot. Maybe when I have the money to buy a second vehicle I am going to LT the rear suspension or 3 link the rear end. I am not sure yet...

    EDIT: I have seen that LT rear suspension kit Giant offers. That is a lot of money!

    Actually I'm just a smart ass...far from offended. :cheers:
    I've got a Tundra for the heavy hauling so the Taco bed was fair game. As long as I can fit my snowboards and a spare tire, I'm happy.
    Yes the Giant kit is expensive.

    The second picture with the bypass shock is the Full LT from TC. The top pic with the smoothie is the midtravel.

    I don't know anything about Icon's shocks. I'm very happy with the King's though.
