    then i made the mistake of going to anza borrego with alex and a few other members here and the go fast bug really sunk his hooks into me...i smell and upgrade from these fox shocks

    front king 2.5 rem res CO, king 2.5 triple bypass(TC spec valving), king 2.0 hydro bump, chopping the stock bumps off gave us about 2inches more of uptravel. total travel is 12.5 with no CV binding. i have limit straps on now that are not in the pictures

    the rear has camburgs shock mount relocation kit...weld on lower mounts, bolt on upper mounts..puts both sides upper mounts in front of the axle. im also running deavers with 500lb of preload build it and king 2.0 hydrobumps...total travel is 14inches..again limit straps not shown

    flexxin on dem hoes


    20170803_151221.jpg
    the go fast life causes a lot of bed flex and the bed flex slowly started to tear away at my decked system..i have nothing but good things to say about that system and that company but it was not meant for high speed desert runs. i sold it to a member for cheap and had my self a bed rack built for my RTT. for RTT i went with the tuffstuff ranger, it came with the annex room which i wanted for my dog, and it was one of the lightest 127lb and cheapest 1200$ no pics of it mounted yet, its to hot to camp in az

    20170803_131338.jpg


    AZ tundras run great turn out, people here really like to wheel
    20170805_110210.jpg

    well the go fast life got me, hit some rock, had some blowouts, went sliding down an embankment, smashed up my front fender and pass door, truck almost rolled...had to winch out threw bushes and over rocks...it was a fun one...truck made it out mechanically fine but needs some body work and of course...bigger tires

    how do you like the bypass shocks on the mid travel? Big difference from what you had before? I'm ready to pull the trigger as soon as MCM has a kit for sale.

    I'm digging that fridge mount too!!

    yah huuuuuge difference..the reason i went with king, other than knowing i liked them from my previous truck was they made everything i wanted so i did have a frankenstien truck..if ADS had midtravel bypasses i would have used his k37spec triple bypassess in the rear and not done the camburg kit.

    if you go look at travel numbers the MT on tundra is quite impressive 4x4 silverados get 14in up front, and tacomas get 12-14...with proper valving this thing will fly..i def need to do some more fine tuning but so far i am really really happy with the performance

    and yes removing that jump seat as a spot for the fridge and to access my other offroad gear easier has been a great decision..one it unbolts in under 2 mins if i wanna throw the seat back in, the dog has room and it stays really secure.

    yeah it came out really nice and waaaaaay cheaper than anything online (850$) i recommend anyone looking for a bumper just google a local fab shop in their area and go that route.

    That rear Camburg relocation is a nice setup. Would I have to call to order that? It's not listed on the site.

    Do you like that setup instead of full long travel? I wanted LT but it's expensive and tundras are big and wide. I'm thinking add a 2.5 bypass to pair with my kings up front and a stock length bypass for the rear. Badass truck by the way.

    yeah they are really slow on updating their website, if you call them they have em ready to go...it is a fairly labor intensive install as you have to cycle the rear suspension to get the shock angle and mounting points correct.

    its not as good as full LT but its about half the cost maybe less and will still romp in the desert. with the right valving and a little tuning youd be surprised what you can do. i added the king secondary bypasses(Stock LCA) up front and didnt want to Frankenstein my truck by doing the ads triple bypass in the rear. i know several people who run deavers with the spec length ads rear triple bypass and have no complaints. if money is more of a factor this is the route i would take over stock length kings in the rear.

    leaf springs are the most important and all the desert race guys say the rear should be about 1.5x the travel of the front so the more travel you can get in the rear the better

    This is a nice build! And I like that you're out there actually using it and not afraid of some dents lol I ordered the same rear set up but with Fox shocks. Only because I'm doing the Camburg LT kit up front and they said they designed it around the Fox shocks. Are the Kings better than Fox at the same level? How did you learn how to do the relocation kit install? Camburg says there are no instructions lol Do you have any tips or pointers for me? @zackbremer

    well bad news after about 10 hours total the upper mounts have broken. completely cracked on the top and bottom of the upper mount on the drivers side and starting to bend on the pass side. the lower mounts are still fine. the design was poorly executed. the mount bracket that comes off the flat bracket(which bolts to frame) is only spot welded instead of having a solid bead on both sides. and the force of the shock moving up and forward when compressing is way to much for this to handle....this kit seems to be geared towards people who want to run bypasses but not really use them.

    thankfully i check my mounts and torque specs on my bolts after each dirt trip or this could have been really bad had it finished breaking on the trail. i have reached out to camburg but have not heard anything yet(dont expect to until monday) again this was after less then 10 hours of dirt time, several of which were pretty gentile as i was breaking everything in and expected stuff to loosen and move. i bottomed the rear twice at various times but i have bump stops so it was not harsh by any means.

    camburg originally told me the design would fit any 12in bypass, but clearly it was designed around fox as my kings require a lil grinding on the bracket to get them to fit. if you plan to do dirt roads and camp this set up will be fine. if you plan to really hit the dirt and hit some whoops i would recommend reinforcing it. or returning it and doing something custom.

    i had a local fabrication shop do my install as it is pretty labor intensive, you need to strip the leaf pack and cycle the suspension to find the correct shock angle and make sure your bump zone is right. it require welding of the lower shock mounts and cutting and bolting of the upper shock mounts. my fab guy is going to runa shock hoop under the bed from one upper shock mount to the other and weld a support gusset to the frame and get rid of these upper mounts all together. the design was lazy and not well thought out. atleast not for people who intend to really use their bypasses.

    disappointed

    Wow Zack, sorry to hear about the Camburg kit. It’ll be interesting to see what Camburg has to say. They make some quality gear so I’d expect that they’d try to take care of you somehow.

    Luckily the failure didn’t leave you stranded somewhere, or worse.

    This is the first I've come across you build. Nice truck and hope you get the shock mount situation resolved. Keep us posted on your progress :thumbsup:
