    Theres a reason everyone has them for racing!

    1. cause they are awesome

    2. Cause they get them for free or a ridiculously cheaper rate from sponsorship.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I went to buy a tailight tonight and it turned out to be the shop that built that truck. Toyota stopped sponsoring them, took the truck back and crushed it. What a shame haha atleast my tailight is baja proven:laughing:

    Oh and Anthony250F, I asked him about the defined travel numbers and he only got 13" after Mike himself set it up.

    I think for me personally the only reason I care about this at all is because of the potential impact an accident someone gets in to can have on the ability to continue using the area where it happened, etc.

    There are very few people who genuinely don't know they are doing something unsafe. I guess I just dont feel sorry for people. If you want to LT and link your truck and not protect yourself and your passengers and you get hurt, that sucks for you. And it sounds mean, but I won't feel sorry for you. If you get in to someone's truck as a passenger without having appropriate safety gear and you get hurt, that sucks for you.

    The only real downfall to it all in my opinion is that other people's accidents as a result of negligence can negatively impact the rest of us who are responsible about it. Not calling anyone out, this is America and if you want to jump your truck without a cage, helmet, etc, more power to you!
