    Mainly because it looks awesome! It does a great job hiding all the stuff that a tube bumper leaves exposed

    Smashed on the truck today...The front end did amazing (but that was expected). The real surprise was the DMZ spring under kit. Wow! It didnt feel as good as my last linked ranger but it felt pretty smooth. I was shocked with the amount of up travel the springs are capable of...way better than a standard replacement deaver pack.

    He has a DCSB, you have a DCLB always loaded down. Can't really use him as a sample. Every truck is different, I'm moving up to 20's in my compression where I hear others using 12's.

    Yeah should be done this week and doing some test runs in yucca this weekend at a buddies cabin. Can't wait been at there shop for over three weeks now so pretty anxious but they're doing a killer job so it's all good. Glad I didn't try and tackle it in my driveway like the original plan.

    Any plans on redoing your rear now? From the time I spent with the Defined kit I couldn't imagine have 19" of travel up front and that in the rear...I know Mike says 15" but I've never seen anyone get more than 14" out of the kit.

    Yeah already doing the research on cost to link truck. I know I won't be happy with the rear end anymore. Gotta replenish some funds though before doing that though but definitely already on my mind.

    I did my install myself and pulled 14.5" out of mine but it bumps at frame and I had to pull third leaf out cause it runs super stiff. Way better than stock but should have gone with giant or Dmz

    Hows your truck running? I swapped my defined sua kit for the dmz kit and truck runs pretty awesome now. Waiting for solo to get my bypass for the front right now. Are you still running with just the coil over or have you installed the bypass up front yet? did you notice a big difference?
