Oh my bad I thought you were talking about the lower valence.. Yes it dose come factory. And you can take it off and raise the bumper. It is same thing as the gap with the ranger.

Na bud. Believe me, these trucks can take it. I have a lot of friends that race and sled pull with trucks just like this. Most with over 1200 ft/lbs of torque. All you have to do is turn the torsion bars down.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh they can handle it? Can they really? I guess that's normal then?? Lol

My truck is an IFS, Dana 50 TTB to be exact. But it handles truck pulls just fine.

Oh. I didnt have to do that on my Ford.

Idk what tuner somebody mentioned above, but screw that. Get an EFI live, intake, and full exhaust, and gauges. Those Duraturd's will move then

If you look at my first comment, I said "If you turn the torsion bars down" they wont break. That idiot didnt have them turnt down. So thats what happens.

And I didnt mean the Allison was a bad transmission, I just meant that if you put that much power to one, you will have to have it built.

PPE = http://www.pacificp.com/ Best tuner for the money. Yes EFI Live may be better, but for someone who doesnt know what they are doing, PPE is the way to go.

I really dont think it has much to do with the torsion bars. From my understanding, as long as you get the sleeved TRE's, you're good to go.

As for the Allison, ANY transmission is going to be rebuilt if they're going to be making that much torque. Any transmission will snap shafts, etc.
