Re: want to do t-master 5\"

The Rancho kit (3") and T-master kit (~4") both lower the location of the t-bars making them verry vulnerable to damage.. Tru$t me I know.. If your seriously thinking about rock crawling go with a solid front axle (SFA) conversion.. IFS is not good at all on crawling and hard angle situations.. The cost of the IFS kits are staggering, starting over $1000 and then installs range around $500 or more.. For what, its just giving you more room to install biger tires, no more travel or any thing benificial. A bodylift can do that for under $100.. Get some stronger T-bars like the SAW's and you can crank them a little more than the stock for about a 2" lift.. Keep them tucked in the frame and avoid the IFS lift.. Or I can sell you my Rancho kit when I do my SFA swap..
SFA swaps are even more expencive than the 'Kits' because its really all fabricated and your getting a different front axle.. But the benifits are noticeable..
