I added a Fortress top. Had no idea it would be so heavy duty. Ready for an asteroid now.
I also added a steel braided line to my oil gauge. Wow what a complicated matter that simple task turned into. Had to drop the exhaust system after the turbo back.

They were fried when I got it, trying to figure out how to remove them.

It has always looked like a plastic coating that the UV light got to. I have no idea if they come with a protective film over them. May try to polish with tooth paste.

Looks great! Thanks for purchasing the very first kit! All 5 from the first batch have sold. I will be making more.

Eager to hear how much you love the new set up. It’s a huge change in ride quality.

The ride quality is nothing like it was stock. The weight of my tire on the carrier would shake the hell out of the whole chassis when I would hit even small bumps in the dirt road. With the longer springs and real shocks, I don't feel or hear the tire anymore.

Still need to drill the frame for the 3rd bolt in each hanger. My right angle drill chuck isn't big enough for a 1/2" bit. Need to borrow one from someone.

Welded up and installed Max's Max Travel suspension. Taking a break while my buddy welds the DOM sleeves in the frame holes I just drilled. After it's done, I'm gonna drive home in the freezing rain with no wipers

This kit appears to still be utilizing the stock shock towers. Is that correct? I'm waiting on a kit and coming up with a process in my head

Chop chop. No more nasty grinding. Only a 1.5" shackle lift but this was necessary.

30mph winds has me indoors for the rest of the day. My Toyota needs some love

If your carful you can drill from the outside. That’s what I did just made sure the drill was level and straight.

I need to start a thread for the long travel kits. All this Info needs to be in one place.

If you don't get to it, I intend to start compiling it all soon.
