Man it looks really good. I'm waiting for Relentless fab's spring sale to get myself a bumper as well.

Did you compare how much droop the extended radflos add compare to the Toytec? From the picture the two coilovers have about the same length side by side fully extended. I recently installed Total Chaos 2" LT with SAW. Here is a side by side comparison with Toytec Boss w/LR UCA. It didn't add as much as I expected, around 1.75" of droop. Should be a little more uptravel as well. But it behaves quite differently from stock geometry.

Very nice suspension set up!
Yeah there was about an inch +/- more of travel when I put on the Radflos. I didn't realize until I tried putting the tire back on and couldnt so I had to jack it up a few inches more! :lol:
