After building and testing out multiple different designs of custom bedcages, the engineers at Dirt King Fabrication have come up with what they consider to be the perfect design for the offroad enthusiast – The Dirt King Prefab Bedcage. This Prefab Bedcage has been designed to allow for maximum travel and easy installation. The truck bedcage takes up minimal bed space while not compromising strength. Accessory mounting holes are incorporated into the center section of the cage to allow for easy mounting of dust lights and flag whips. The entire kit bolts together and mounts to the frame after four brackets are welded on. It can be installed with leaf over or leaf under spring packs. This suspension system is superior to a cantilever suspension system for two major reasons. The first reason is the shock mounts on the bedcage are outside the frame rails vs inside the frame rails for increased stability.
The second reason is the shocks are mounted vertically with a motion ratio close to 1:1, allowing for proper dampening through the suspension travel. The cantilever suspension has a higher motion ratio resulting in smaller shocks, difficult to valve shocks properly, and heating up the shocks faster since they have less fluid. This Dirt King Prefab Bedcage makes the perfect choice for those who are looking to increase rear suspension performance while not breaking the bank. When you purchase this product, your kit will include a Prefabbed Bedcage Structure, Grade 8 mounting hardware, and a set of installation instructions.
