    Yep. When I first removed my sway bar, it felt a little weird. Now, I love the sway...BTW my rear sways with the TC kit as well. Def some solid advice here though to see if you get used to it.

    Give Tim at DMZ a call. He has a bolt in bed cage for around $1500 I believe. If you let him know you want to save as much space as possible I'm sure he can design one that won't take up much space.

    Example, here's one that @jeffz0rz did that is not bolt in, but you get the idea.Or just give Jeff a call and see if he can make you one and ship it up here

    And the Camburg kit should be pulling something around 18" of travel in the rear.

    I have heard good and bad things about Giant. Some claim they experience some twisting with his kit, others claim is the closest to a linked rear without linking. Im sure others can chime in better than me though.

    I will be eager to see how this comes together. Might be my route. Are you going to glass the rear at all before the install?

    I think you would have to cut ALOT if you kept your current bedsides. I think at a minimum you would have to bulge the top area, but I could be wrong here.

    Haha doing a rear LT end is ALOT of work! I am going to get a custom bed rack for my RTT made this summer, but I am honestly thinking about getting DMZ's bed space saver bolt on cage (initially for space allocation) and then building my RTT bed rack around that? That way I can get the weight off the bed sides for my rear glass, get the RTT in there and then start collecting the rest of my LT kit for when I do the big install.

    I see that, has Camburg suggested that without going glass is possible? I just feel you might be asking for it if you don't glass your stuff when cycling your rear. I also like the rear glass look though so Im pretty eager to throw it out to balance out the look as well.

    You can get a nice set of McNeil bedsides that are flat on the top and don't have that " TT " look to it.

    I think roadrunner is who I am going to go to for my glass as well. They did a good job on my hood and fenders.

    Dude DONT do the f67!!! That is a horrible choice!! You will be severely dissapointed. They can't carry ANY weight and you will literally be on the bumps at ride height. They don't even work good for 1st gen access cabs.


    If the shop reccomended those I would look for a new shop.

    Yeah the giant springs would be much better for weight.

    I remember the few times I talked to him he answered his phone pretty timely. Depending on his schedule it could be hit or miss, but I would try giving him a ring. I think last time I talked to him we ended up shooting the shit for over an hour.

    Yeah you can run a soft topper with glass, mine are flat top, and most companies sell flat top vs tt style with the bump. But I totally get what you're saying about not wanting to run glass, most likely inevitable unless you limit up travel and it works out in your favor for your application. Not sure how wide the 3rd gen bedsides are compared to 2nd gen.
