you can put LT on a daily driver no problem. it is a little bit more expensive as you will almost definately need some new body panels (fenders obviously, bedsides and hood depending on whatelse you decide to do) and a larger wheel/tire combo. the only real draw backs you will see from having long travel on your daily driver is decreased gas mileage and acceleration due to the fact that it will almost definately have a larger wheel/tire combo, but this can easily be fixed by programming chips or buying a new rear gear. i would go with the latter eventhough it isn't THAT big of an issue. also you will probably lose bedspace aswell depending on how you do the rear end due to cage work and shock hoops.PIMPaLiCiOuS said:Is there a company or a kit that would give me the look/ability of long travel, but also the daily driveability, considering this is my daily driver?
I saw the Camburg Tacoma in the July 2006 Off-Road magazine. I guess it had Stage 1 before, and then they put Stage 2 on it. Camburg is awesome. Too bad they don't do Nissans. I've been talking w/ SLR about long travel, and they're actually looking for a donor truck. I told them I'd give them my truck in a heartbeat if I was back in Cali.
you don't need a full blown cage for long travel. it will work just fine without a cage, its just better if you have a cage because of what will probably happen when youre pushing your truck.BajaWill said:for true long travel setups a cage is a must. If you beat on your truck without a cage it will bend things that werent designed for all the extra loads. I have an 03 tacoma double cab with long travel front and rear and a full cage. The cage was by far the best investment. For strenght and safety. Im Dedsled on DR and RDC if anyone cares.
Oh and my frontier is my daily driver and work truck so Im loving the way stock rides now. Not creaks droning hard getting into or out of. Other than tires and walker evans wheels, Im leaving this one alone.
Oh and SLR is the man
