Its always nice to see her!!!
I love this truck.
More videos of it running plz!!!!!!
If you check out expedition x offroad's youtube channel, you'll see my truck in the videos from the last year and a half. I know a few folks got some video on the last trip. When I see it, I'll share it.
What did you do allow your truck to cycle nearly 18" in the front? I thought the SVC stated their mid travel kit cycles 15-16".
Also what are your travel numbers for the rear suspension?
Awesome build by the way!
The Mid-travel kit that is on my truck is one of, if not the first Gen2 kit that SVC produced. It is different in a few ways from what they are selling now. It took TMX, SVC and myself a bit of time and massaging to get it working right. My shock package and setup is also different than the current setups. All of this nets me 17.5 ish inches of front travel.
The rear of my truck cycles 21" when measured on jackstands from full droop, to full compression of the bumpstops.
In reality, gravity being what it is, there is probably another 1" of droop in the truck, as the 40s, alcon brakes, 4" tube housing Currie F9, etc are quite a bit heavier than the stock components.
If you go spring under, you might pick up another 1.5-2" in exchange for a whole lot of headaches.
If you try to notch the frame, you could pick up some travel, but say goodbye to your factory gastank for any true uptravel gains. The bed floor is also in the way.
To really get multiple inches of additional travel, you have to back-half the truck and go full HAM.
I'm not keen on the extra maintenance that would bring on this particular truck. I'll eventually start a new truck that is linked, but not until this one is complete and dialed.
