Default Raptizzle's Gen 2 Build Thread
Starting it out with a pic of how the truck currently sits. I'll backtrack to the build below.



Stage 1

Started with around 400 miles on the ticker

SVC Coil Adjustment System (CAS)
37” BFG KO2’s
17” Method Grid Titaniums








Naturally we had to go testing the next day.





Here's my write up on the CAS system - Installed SVC's Coil Adjuster System

KO2's have been a great all around tire. Might get a set of projects in addition down the road.

Obligatory Methods but a great looking wheel.

Some pics of how the truck looked at this stage:








Stage 2


SVC Bolt On Baja Front Bumper
Vision X 30” XPR Light Bar
SVC Adjustable Bumpstop System (ABS)
Deaver Leaf Springs +2






I'm really liking the look of this bumper. In my opinion, it’s truly the first bolt on bumper I’ve seen that truly represents a clean prerunner style bumper. It's super strong and the lines of it just work on these trucks. Plenty of air flow to the IC through the mesh cutouts.

Vision X XPR is bright and priced right. Good company and can't go wrong at the price point.

ABS is a quality built piece. Full range of adjustability through the bump can and you can cycle your setup to achieve a wide range of up travel settings.

Anyone that's had Deaver's know they're a necessary mod. They ride so much smoother on and offroad, it's undeniable. Deavers's been in business probably longer than any off-road company and there's a reason why they're in a league of their own in the leaf spring industry.





Stage 3

To be continued….

2.0 Bumps? Very Interesting... :)

At least they're Fox's


Edit...

I will add that the internal floating piston IFP design has changed the game in the bump world but I'd prefer not to revisit Bumpgate all over again. Not in this thread at least.

Looking good man. Interested to hear your review of the bump setup. I know you'll be pushing it hard. We need to hit the desert this winter, lets plan something for Ocotillo

I figured this was coming.

So, do 37's fit with no trimming?

Looks like the front bumper line is straight across the bottom of the grill, where as the Gen 2 has a step in that line. How is the fit? Is there a valence support? Got a picture looking down at it?

Looking good bud, can't wait to see you cut the bed!

Let's do it! No excuses this year lol

I'm hitting Barstow this weekend and will get some footage of the rear end working. Pretty excited about the IFP design on the bump. It should keep the initial impact soft enough to keep the rear from the fabled donkey kick but will ramp up pressure as the bump travels further through the stroke.

Thanks, really happy how the truck is turning out so far.

That top tube is straight across and fits really flush at all points of the valance with the help of the dimpled top plate. SVC pretty much designed the best looking and fitting bolt on bumper I've seen yet... gen 1 or 2.



Stay tuned for their frame cut bumper that should be released really soon. It's going to follow the contours of the lower valance perfectly. Essentially it'll be a similar fit to the ADD Pro but with some nice aesthetic improvements. ADD essentially tried to copy SVC's CAD design.

I'm definitely down. My truck should be able to handle a bit more than last time (when it almost came apart on the freeway )

Maybe late this month or early next sound good?
