    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.

    The shop I'm going with recommended deaver f67 springs to go with the camburg kit.

    Anyone else use those? I'm hoping with the weight I carry and height I need they'll work out okay!

    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?

    Probably not. I don't know. With how my front fenders fit, I don't know if I want glass - but I know I don't have a choice. I have an idea I might try with my current bedsides that I've done on import cars to tuck tires.:anonymous:

    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.

    We'll see. Worst case I just lower my bumpstops a bit. If I do bedsides that's a looooot of work. Maybe end of summer or something.

    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.

    Haha. I'm the opposite. The LT won't be too bad. Redoing my bed rack and getting bedsides to fit properly is what I'm not looking forward to.

    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.

    I'll cycle to make sure but it's not that far off. I don't have a ruler. But the make up travel I can currently get until the axle hits the frame is two iPhones. From the top of my tire two iPhones is only to the top of my flare. I still have another iPhone until the bedside starts moving in.

    But I see your point. Plus bedsides would complete the look as well. It bothers me sometimes how the front fenders are wide but the rear is narrow.

    Oh lastly...I have a soft topper. Most bedsides aren't flat. So there's that too. :(

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

    You sure? They don't look flat. I also wish they weren't 6".

    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.
