Wow I have never seen a 4wd LT like that. With that diff I was expecting a straight axle. You see tons of IFS setups but rarely like that.

I knew it wasnt a Toyota but Ive never seen a 4wd ranger with beams. So thats a Giant setup? Or just their sticker? I look on Dezert Rangers sometimes for deals but never really check out their trucks.

traction beams (fords 4x version), i-beams, equal length suspension, what ever you want to call it... makes sloppy travel. they are however, CHEAP!!!

not to mention if the steering isn't done right, the bump steer will kill you most likely

i'll take the 12.5 w/ 4x4 on my tacoma any day over that crap.

if i had the dough i would have shelled out for some porche axles and went like 18"

don't worry about it.

Equal length with swingset steering actually is a pretty strong set-up. I have nothing against I-beams personally because it is a great way to get lots of travel #'s relatively easily. What I do not understand is how people run those set-ups and still are all over the place. My Tacoma is set-up pretty well and would probably out-run the average joe's I-beamed truck anyday just because of how much better a-arms and my valving/spring set-up works on my truck. I think people that have 20" on a class 7/1450 just don't know how to set-up suspensions properly. Brandon Walsh's Tacoma has HORRIBLE shock valving but HUGE travel numbers and is still slow. I don't know where I was going with this

That's because valving doesn't matter to the DGAF crew, if you tell a Bro Hoe you're packing 20 inches they're in love,and Brandon Walsh has dirty hooker travel on a Toyota haha !

Bro Hoes look at wheel travel like it's penis size, but in reality just because someone has more, doesn't mean that it works as good as a smaller one haha

Exactly. That's why I can brag about my strapped 18" of rear travel.
