Hey N2deep what the hell! Giving away my info and expertise. Should of copyrighted that pic. Now the moderators really gonna think Im a buisness. Please note "that was in my garage at home". HAHA If any one has mid or LT questions email me or msg me. [email protected] Yes the new development for the rear shock will be good. I ran this setup years ago on my tundra before adding 16in bypasses and bed cage. I only gaind about 4in of up travel with bed cage and 16s and leaf under. So for a budget system this is great. Now stop giving away my secrets Craig. I had this under wraps since 08. LOL

So would the KORE coil overs plus Total Chaos LCAs give the full 12.4" of front wheel travel that KORE advertises?

Then what would be a good matching rear set up? New springs and bypass shocks as well?

Just got off the phone with TC.

If I install a secondary shock hoop for stock length arms, and later decide to go full LT, then I can reuse the shock hoop. Just need to replace the upper shock tabs. food for thought. Shock hoop is only ~500, waiting on a quote on install labor...

do you mean TC Upper Control arms?
Cause the Lower Control arms are for Long Travel.

Correct the added shock hoop can be used for LT and usually with the same tabs.. Food for thought on travel. Not all the 2nd gens are built to the exact same spec. So Ive had some with LT get 15in of travel and bolt the same exact kit on another truck and get 17in. Yes the KORE(same as fox) do get you around 12.5 but so do all the other brands. The KORE setup is avail as a FOX extended length. Same shock better price!!! But you have to notch the lower mount in the lower arm. Kings are almost a full 8in travel shock which is whats required for LT!!! Hmmm. And Ive bolted a lt kit on with a OEM king shock and only lose around a 1in of travel... But hit me up for either Fox , Icon Or King I can help get you a discount on your purchase even on TC!!!!!

yeah I did mean upper arms, my bad.

So here's the set up in my head:
-KORE Fox 2.5 front coils (Prob set around 2.5" lift)
-TC UCAs
-Deaver 1" lift springs
-Fox rear shocks (what length?)
-Coach's 1" shackles as well.

Thoughts/comments/suggestions?

Can I take my oem foxs and extend them like the KORES?

So you're saying the oem kings are almost 8 inches? How does that compare to my foxs? I have been thinking about switching...

That will be pretty close to my setup, except I am concentrating on load carrying capability. If you dont haul then the deavers will work well (I am assuming you mean full leaf pack)

For the rear go with kings or do the measurements and get custom length foxs. I am not happy with my oem rear foxs, they are limiting my travel with just a one inch shackle lift.

I'm not terribly worried about load carrying. If i regularly start hauling a lot I'll just add some air bags.

But what other options are there for non-OEM Fox shocks in the rear? It doesn't look like KORE offers any.

air bags for tundras do not work well if you have more travel than stock. I was hoping for LT airbags, but nobody has them yet...

Fox can do any length I believe. But you have to call them and tell them what length you want cuz they dont list it on the website

So without killing my load carrying capacity would the Icon coil expansion pack be a good option?

No no LT yet. Other things I need before that - Just changing up the rear a bit and want gears and hoping the auburn ected gets released for the Tundra. Might have something else up my sleeve. :D :eek:
