its basically a truck built to go fast off road... desert racing and such.

the front end is about 4" wider per side, 13" of travel strapped(limits travel/prevents binding) and bumpped(hydraulic bump stop aka air bump, coushions compression travel)

ultimate goal with the truck is to race the baja 500 once day with it...

Looking good so far! Too bad it's a Ford, though... hehehe...

I'm more into crawling rocks and dirt, but pre-running seems like alot of fun too!!

My Tacoma has reached it's limits with alignment, so I guess that's as good excuse as any to SAS it!!

Here's some pics from Gilmer:

JP Expressway trail (for those that don't know this trail, it's steep... very steep):

Lawnmower Trail at Long's Ranch



Once I SAS it, I'll go through it like this guy!!
