Great sounding setup. And if fox is good enough for my mtb it should be equally impressive with my truck. Willl you guys ship to canada and/or have any canadian dealers?

It will be necessary to trim the existing bumpstop mount on the frame to allow for about 1/2" clearance. I used the spring as a guide to mark the corner of the mount that needs to be trimmed.

I don't have any pictures. That's my fault, but I plan on getting some on the next truck we do in our shop.

You can see the mount in the middle of this picture when it was bare metal before I painted it:

I'm having ORW install my kit on Monday. Nick said that they'll take plenty of pictures during the install of all the steps along the way so there should be tons of pictures soon. My truck will be famous!!! This kit is going on a stock height 01 edge 4x4 by the way

Just dropped my truck off with Nick. I get to pick it up later and test out the ride on my way to work. Plenty of railroad tracks and trolley tracks and dirt roads between me and the San Diego airport.. Been looking forward to a smoothe ride ever since I cranked the torsion bars

No more t-bars... And the ride is unreal!!!! Took a test drive on the way home over some bumpy roads that used to rattle my teeth out and the truck soaked them up like it was a freshly paved road. I'll write more after work. On my way out the door.

MAY REQUIRE STEERING STOP KIT!! This is the first time we have run into this, needing to modify the factory steering stops.
Not all models require but this one did. At full turn the caliper was too close to the lower bracket. So we ended up using a small spacer and 1/2" bolt.
