Re: help, 6 inch rough country with 5100's and spacers ??

Are the radflo's alum or steel base ? Arent the walkers all alum ?

Here's the info from Radflo's site: Body Caps & Eyelets CNC machined 6061 or 7075 aluminum, black anodizing

I'm pretty sure the Walker Evans have aluminum mounting points as well. Not sure about Toytec.

It is a "complete kit" but it essentially is a front spacer kit (the majority of the front end kit uses huge spacers as seen at the top of the pic below ) but the kit still requires you to use your factory front coils as I understand it .............

Both Icon and radlflo now offer replacement front coilovers specifically for the RC 6'' kit...........

The RC 6" lift is amazing. I just put the stock shocks back on because I'm waiting to have my coilovers rebuilt and the ride is still decent. Really helped me out going through all the flood waters around here a few weeks ago .

Where ??? I've always seen the fabtecs priced much higher , and if you're swapping in the newer icons(they already make the fronts but the rears are on there way*) , I don't see the point in buying the higher priced fabtec ........


*Read up here
(I read the whole thread lol lotta good info ) I started off not wanting the rc 6'', then I wanted it 1/4 the way thru the thread , then not about half way thru the same thread ,then in the end I kinda want it again

Re: help, 6 inch rough country with 5100's and spacers ??

is this the complete kit comparable to RC 6 inch lift?

oh boy im reading through that link and YES its EVEN MORE CONFUSING NOW!!!.....peoplare saying 6 inch lift is not a 6 inch lift and anthing above 3 inch lift is such as the 6 inch is the same as the 3inch lift. oh boy...........


all I want is my truck in general higher off the ground so if I ever need to get under there I dont need a jack or something......whoa.......and for looks.

Re: help, 6 inch rough country with 5100's and spacers ??

The six inch R/C was delivered last week and purchased it from R/C ( spoke with Ben) direct at a out-sanding price. Thanks to Livingloud's suggestion, I contacted Radflo and will be ordering the six inch coil overs on Monday. I purchased a set of 305's Nittos on 20 inch black liquid metal wheels and I only need 5 inch's of lift to clear my Garage. You choice is all about what you want to do with your rig. I run a comm adjusting company and I travel a lot around the Midwest. I believe the R/C and radflos will do the job.
