The Dirt King long travel kit was developed to drastically improve the vehicles off-road handling without compromising its day to day driving characteristics. This suspension system allows for 13” of travel and accepts up to a 37” tire. The kit is compatible with 2WD models and 4WD models along with the purchase of extended axle shafts. Dirt King’s upper and lower arms are designed with 1” stainless steel uniballs for the outer pivots instead of ball joints for strength and increased articulation. The suspension system allows for bypass shocks to be added. This kit is CAD designed, thoroughly tested, and 100% made in America!

*Please contact us if you plan on installing this kit with lift spindles or a bracket lift.
For the best performance and to achieve the full 13” of travel you must purchase our spec-built shocks or have them custom built based on our coil over spec sheet. These shocks will only work on 2WD models. For 4WD models you must use King or Fox OEM replacement coil overs with 700lb springs. In addition, the shocks must have the same lower shock mounting as the 2009-2013 shocks. This can be done by simply switching out the spacers. Our long travel kit is also tabbed to accommodate bypass shocks. The bypass shocks will allow for superior suspension dampening and tunability. To mount the bypasses, we offer a weld on bypass shock hoop kit that can be purchased separately. The bypass shock hoop kit requires welding and modifications to the frame. The bypasses be used with both the 2WD and 4WD shocks.
When shopping long travel kits many consumers tend to focus just on travel numbers. This is the reason many companies claim inaccurate numbers or don’t disclose the amount of work involved to achieve these numbers. Our goal is to build a suspension system with the highest amount of wheel travel without requiring major modifications to the vehicle or compromising its overall drivability.
When using 37” tires with this kit modifications to the wheel well will need to be made. The firewall pinch weld will need to be folded over and front cab mount needs to be shaved to avoid contact while turning. The upper wheel well will also need to be modified to avoid contact at full bump.

Installing a long travel kit can be very time consuming and require specialty tools and minor fabrication. Since the kit will likely be used under harsh conditions Truck Brigade recommends having an expert do the installation. Each kit comes packaged with easy to read instructions and illustrations to ensure a hassle-free installation.
