Hmm!
    Hey guys im sort of feeling the market out there, to see if anyone is interested in long travel, for the daily driver? I fabbed a set that bolt in with no major upgrades, eg; shocks, expensive axles, fender flares. I have been researching more about similar kits, cost buku $. I am an average dude just trying to stomp the competition in cost. if there are a few interests I will be patenting! To take to the next level.

    If this is the kit you're thinking about "selling," do everyone a favor and stop before you kill someone.

    If I'm correct, you don't even gain any noticeable travel since you are using stock replacement shocks. Its just wider for no reason.especially with those stock length CVS.

    fox extended travel remote resivoir coilovers, 14" eibach 600lb coils, All Pro tubular chromoly 1" uniball upper control arms, All Pro expedition leaf packs, 10" bilstein 5150 piggyback reservoir shocks 265/75r16 Goodyear wrangler MT/R kevlars wrapped around 16" Helo 791 gloss black, Mini H1 retrofits with 6000k bulbs, 18" magnaflow w/custom exhaust reroute various decals, Sockmonkey retro hood stripes
    all of those "major" upgrades are necessary...upgrades

    longer arms won't do much without a longer axle, the axle itself will limit travel

    which wouldn't get the travel necessary without longer shocks anyway

    which wouldn't perform as well as a LT kit in the first place, with no gusseting or strengthened parts in the first place, everything would just break

    fender flares accommodate the wider stance and greater uptravel...

    and the difference between lt shocks and "normal" shocks arent only length... theyre specifically designed for LT use, with heavier duty parts, completely different valving; there's a reason people run triple bypasses/RR coilovers rather than 5100's

    not to shit on your parade OP, I'm not a LT guru but I think you should take a step back and do some more research

    assuming the shock is mounted the same distance from the lower arm pivot as stock, then you would get maybe another inch or so at the wheel.

    That is assuming the sketchbag lower shock tabs don't tear off first.

    Guys guys guys...you're missing the point. It's a long travel for the daily driver. None of that shit matters. It's all about bitches.
    Honestly I think 3.5" wheel spacers would be safer.

    That lower arm might be the jankiest thing i have seen in a very long time.

    OP please clarify if the kit will in fact include these. If so are we able to order a smaller size? These may drag a bit at full compression.

    K&n fipk, doug throlley ca legal headers, walker Evans reservoir coilovers 10", pitiful custom made LT upper & lower 3.5" arms, pitiful modified tundra axles, 2 pioneer shallow 10" subs, kenwood 9152 amp, 1k cap, kenwood dd dvd player, bilstein 5100 rear shocks, flowmaster 44 muffler, pitiful custom bedliner, 8k hid, hella vision plus housings, hella vision runner lights, im sure im missing something! Hmm!
    so first of all the only reason i posted this was to try to see if there was any interest in a factory bolt on application with shock upgrade and longer cvs to aquire 3.5" width and approximately 13" travel.
    so now for u douchbags that need to shut ur fucking mouth befor opening it without knowing what ur talking about.
    first j ferry- or whatever, this is not a sellable kit, obviously is rough around the edges, a few reasons to clarify, very simple no wasted material to build a set to verify that the jigs i made were accurite enough to attain factory alignment, which they were dead on balls accurite. second reason why make it pretty as a trial pair, so i can show it off to all my boys, glad thats what yall look forward to, street queen homos. As far as the bitcher yes when they look at a LT kit and it says someones name all over it, yaaaay at least i can say i built mine from ground up, not purchased for way too much, and used very little because ur afraid to break something.
    Steve hoooo 77- if u actually knew how to weld ud actually see that every piece on here was TIG welded by ME with my miller gold star 300 which if u dont know what that is its a very smooth and powerfull machine capable of welding anything except ur mouth shut guranteed. as far as my (SKETCHBAG) lower shock tabs, ur obviously not seeing the big picture, ITS A TEST PAIR FOR FITMENT PURPOSE ONLY. doesnt have to be pretty, dick!
    hiatt1991- if u actually knew what to look for in the pictures u would realize the those axles are tundra axles 3.62" exactly longer than factory tacos. the shocks that were temporairly bolted on to get it out of the shop were billsteins but were nowhere near solid enough for LT use.
    konaborne- the a arms were made from scratch with jigs that i made to replicate the factory ball joint positioning, giving the new A arms no camber, or caster issues. As stated befor the cvs are tundra axles 3.62" longer is actual length, and if u actually see the truck u would see the coilovers that are being ran 14".
    Id trucks- so for the name pitiful fab since u seem to have so much to say about it here is a little info, i have been born and raised around the bulley breed more specifically the pit bull, so the name is from my undying love and respect for the breed that has given their body, mind and spirit to always trying their best in everything they do to look up and say was that good daddy i love u. for my pit that looks at me with this pouty face that is pitiful.
    if there is anyone who would like to talk more about the topic at hand im more than willing to share the knowlege iv obtained in this trial pair, but now its time to start the nice pair.

    For those who continue to run ur mouth im available anytime to show the truck and ur mouth what i mean by serious so, time & place n ill be there to close it for u.;)
