go to camburg or stick with fabtech...

right now i have a 2002 ranger edge and ive had it for about a year now and back in december i put on the fabtech spindle lift and an add-a-leaf kit in the rear....i want to have some fun with it now and i was wondering if it would be a good idea to put on the camburg suspention lift so i can jump it more...let me know what you think....thanks

Who said there were dunes in NC? You don't need dunes to jump. I know of jumps on fire roads in the middle of the forest in the mountains. In those pictures I posted from this weekend those were most definatly not dunes they were jumping off of.

Anywho.. if you can afford it, Camburg.

I don't know a lot about desert style suspension systems but I do know Camburg makes very good quality products. As far as what system to go with listen to FauX & rngprerunner. I would love to see someone local build that type of truck. I would really like to see how these kits perform in person but there aren't too many trucks like that around here. My vote is yes..



Off topic but Mooresville is not on the coast, it's a little north of Charlotte.

And NC has plenty of dunes including the tallest on on the east coast. But the majority of good locations do not allow ORVs

Camburg if you have the money for sure...

When I went in a few weeks ago for my truck, we went into their shop and were lookin' at the Camburg Edge... LT 6.0 kit and stuff... the guy we were talkin' to said that they don't like to jump their trucks on purpose... if they happen to come across one during a race or whatever, then sure, but they don't go looking for jumps. Just thought I'd throw that out there...
