Loftis Motorsports.

Anyone heard of them? I saw a few trucks flying there flag on there window and decided to stop by and check it out. to be honest im impressed by the quality and throughness of the lifts and all around bulletproof design and parts.

what i want to know is. a Full Motorcage with over top shock mount brace. 2 Adjustable coil over shocks on onepiece equal length beams and control arm mounted with dual hiem joints (On heim for the Beam and one for the control arm.)

Would all that be worth 5500? This suspension setup is literally. baja 1000 "Never gonna friggin break" kind of suspension. i dont have pics, and there website is down so far. but seen in person. it was kinda drool worthy lol.

I havent heard much about them, but just searched around on Dezertrangers.com and didnt seem too impressed with their experiences. IF i would you i'd stick to one of the more known companies like camburg. I know camburg just came out with a new equal length beam kit.

Just checked it out. 8500? thats insane lol.and it doesnt say if it incudes the bedcage or shocks. bud i like the steering setup more and the swings for them, also the camber adjustment is a cool design. but the price is staggering. i mean really. i spent 8500 on my truck itself, after tax and finances.

But instead of that system. i could get Custom I-Beams$1795.00, Coil-Over Mounts$799.00 Coil-Over Mounts, and Custom Heim joint radius arms with tranny cross member$1000
, plus a set of coilovers. for way less than that. (around 5k) and be happy.

or pay loftis an extra 500. and have the equal length done WITH bedcage. so i need a little more information and research on loftis befor i start buying. more than half of this stuff i can do myself. but i dont have tube benders for the cage. or a decent supplier for chromoly right near me.

the equal length kit is big $ but it is a race quality kit. What do you want to do with your truck? you can also look in the classifieds at race-dezert.com, craigslist and dezert rangers

basicly. i want something that is durable and can handle ME. not necessarily the best travel. or the best damping shocks. and stuff like that. but i DO want something decent. i like to mob on hills. dirt. dezert. pretty much anywhere i am. if i see dirt, i like to "Touch" it. :P its more or less a compulsive addiction. cant really control it lol.

Also. i was just checking out the Custom I Beams on camburg. and it doesnt tell if it incudes the heim mounts for the frame as well. im assuming it does and is standard therfore not worth mentioning?

it'd be rather silly of camburg to sell you that kit without critical mounting hardware... but that'd just my logic without having looked at the page.

there are other shops you can check out for comparison too, though. off the top of my head... giant motorsports, h-n-m... check out the websites alon mentioned and do some research before you go dropping that kind of cash. Keep in mind when you're doing something like this, theres more $ involved than just the kit. ie: fiberglass, shocks, metal & fabrication costs, etc.

sooo.. yeah. I dont mean to put down camburg. they put out premuim products top to bottom but they cost big $.

thanks. ya. any other additional sites i can check would be cool. the more i research this the better. and the only reason i said something about the mounting hardware was because for the heim joint radius arms specificly says it has it. but the beams dont.
