    it's very different. i dont have my sway bar anymore but it still fells very controled and sharp in corners due to the extra track width. (the truck is 7" wider overall than stock) not to metion the night and day difference in the offroad performance from stock, even my old mid travel set up. it's basically changes everything, in a good way. (except your bank account)

    i think i'm gonna have sometime tomorrow to hit up some whoops and dirt trails and really test out the kit. i'll let ya know how it goes...

    my brother and i decided it's either the ojai branch of al qadea training grounds or a WWI re-enactment battlefield. prob the second one :D

    there's spent shell casings, barbed wire, craters everywhere. the trenches are almost 8 feet deep in places. who ever built this thing spent some serious time and effort on it.

    here's a few more
