Thanks for killing it on the response man. He's right. I'm Building the rig so it can literally do everything. It's going to be my dedicated daily driver when I can't ride the motorcycle of course. Ill be able to drive it on the highway clear across northern Nevada to go hunt, catch a lot of skinny pedal and hopefully some good air through the desert, and best of all still be able to pull it into 4 low when I need to get through the rocks.TTB is proven to work really well for go fast in the desert, and actually works pretty well crawling too. The Torchmate TTB Ultra4 and the Filar XJ both have proven the concept, let alone legions of Rangers in all forms of desert racing. Its hard to beat for lower ride height coupled with travel and 4x4 capability.
Hopefully in the next couple years I get everything worked out and dialed so that I can start desert racing it as well. Gotta graduate college and get a big kid job first though!
Ifs does work too, so don't get me wrong, the beams are just tried and true. Less to break and they let me keep the rig a lot lower center of gravity than an 8.8 ifs swap would have and in my opinion give me a more functional and reliable setup in the rocks.
