    They limit the travel of the suspension so that it doesn't travel too far and rub/damage items.

    Nice truck btw.

    limits down travel ,aftermarket uca i have don't stop down travel, i was getting ball joint damage on spring, an CV boot damage off of lower control arm
    now i can adjust were i want it to stop
    now some shocks stop down travel, the rcd 4.5 kit shocks do not
    plus its not good on the shock
    i regularly get the truck on 2 or 3 wheels when 4x4ing, safest way to save parts i could come up with,was straps

    if i had stock upper arms ,or a upper arm that has stops,then i wouldn't have to have straps,but i like my light racing arms,
    from were I'm welded to frame to center of lower shock bolt is 1 1/2 inch's of travel
    at the wheel that gives me a little over 2 5/8 inch's of wheel travel down from riding position
    the strap is 12in ,for every 12in of strap there is 1inch of stretch,
    so there is only 1/2inch of slop in the strap[just looks tight, its not]
