    nobody on here is gonna be running that

    that is a race kit that uses a 12" shocks, thats huge, those wont fit in the stock coil bucket, alot of fab work needed to run that kit

    def overkill if your just the typical weekend warrior prerunner

    but for a kit like that $3500 is not that bad a deal

    Oliver you gotta stop asking lt questions here! Haha there is no one here that run things like that. If you want info on stuff like that join desert rangers or race dezert. Like matt said that kit is a race kit and over kill unless you race the truck. Just save and get a tc kit or engage

    I wouldn't buy that one looks way to much for what I'm looking for just curious if anyone had any experience with the kit.

    Unless it's engage, camburg, or total chaos people won't know here most likely know info here. Plus there is only a few long travel guys here and they don't normally post much here. I think you will love a LT kit but be prepared to be spending lots and lots of money too do it right :)

    OMG you can say that again. the money pit is just begining once you get the LT kit on the truck, everything else starts to break cause the susp can handle so much and the rest of the truck cant...

    plus you always want more, secondary shocks, air bumps, better springs....

    it's a blackhole

    thats the truth. My truck was already built damn good and since I've had it I've dropped $3k into it and their is still another $3k of stuff I want to do to it. (Air bumps, front bypasses, interior cage, race radio, and rebuild my tc kit with new bushings and uniballs)

    stuff isn't gonna break on your first time out (well, it might) but it def will over time. you have to gusset alot of parts and replace other parts to try to keep everything in place.

    common things that break: tie rod ends, spindles, coil bucket, steering rack, windshield, motor mounts....

    and thats just the front :D

    First time I was out in the desert a guy picked up a rock in his rear tire and had it come forward, smash his back window, just miss his passenger's head, and hit the inside of the windshield.

    It's fun out there! :D

    To much to list!
    Im considering this kit. I currently have gen 2 engage before it was boxed setup. Im looking for something different and not super expensive. Iv heard/read a lot of good things about JSI. When im ready for an upgrade it will come down to What I can get a better deal on JSI or Custom front end from a buddy. Only down fall I can see with this kit is there is no good place to strike a bump stop off the upper arm.
