Call me Pickles
There really isn't any more/less maintenance with ext travel vs stock travel. This isn't a Long Travel kit that requires modified CV axles or anything like that. It just simply allows the tire more than stock travel which is always nice. Same price I would definitely go ext travel. It's better to have and not need , than need and not have.Thanks for the help! I think if I go radflo I'll keep it simple and do regular travel 2.5 front coilovers with the rear 2.0 shocks and coils. Extended travel sounds nice but I know it'll add more crap to tweak and I really don't need it. Cant decide between fox 2.5 or radflo. I like the radflo because I can choose between a 590 and 650lb coil. Decisions decisions. And Can't wait for pictures!
My personal opinion between fox and radflo.
With Fox ( and yes Ive wheeled fox ) you cant feel the truck. The ride is so smooth that when loosing traction you can't feel which tire is spinning. It also left me doubting my lines because it fools you in many ways. Don't get me wrong it was AWESOME suspension if your street driving , washboard roads , or even mudding. But with Slow speed rock crawling it took too much feeling away.
Radflo is a general mix of on road , washboard , and rock. There are pros and cons to all suspension but this one seamed to have the best flexibility to any grade path I put my rig to. I know I can take park road 2 from area b to area 51 at 50+ mph at Hidden Falls and not spill my coffee hehe.
They are both superb suspension systems and I personally think you will be very happy with either one! Keep us in the loop on your decisions and I will have pics up soon for you.
