its actually a mid travel kit, still retaining the factory coil bucket.

the truck is limited to 13" travel before stuff thats binding.
their longtravel kit gets 17" travel, and their race Lt kit gets 24" travel

i guess you plan on jumping dunes in galveston? I don't imagine there are too many trucks like your set up for desert play in houston... looks good.

AHAHA my last truck was 8 different colors, had 3 20" rims and a stock spare, while it was under construction. the neighbors will just say put the parts in the back yard haha.

-patrick, right now i still have 3.55s in an open diff. i will be stepping it up to 4.56s with a factory limited slip... and 4.56s are ideal for 35s.. so ill have some "get up and go" haha.

no dunes in texas, and i dont need a ticket for driving on the dunes in galveston. but im sure once i get the front bumper built with the lights ill go out at night on the beach and have some fun.
