Cool Which long travel is the best???

I was trying to figure out which long travel suspension kit i would want to pick up for my rhino. I was looking at some +6 kits from LSR and Custom Creations. Also which shocks would give the best ride out in the dunes, yet i still want to be able to go over those whoops!

any comparative info would be great. thank you in advance for any help!

I have the LSR and its bad ass. I have bilstiens which are pretty good. A buddy has Elkas which i like his set up better. If money wasnt an object i would get LSR with Elkas...maybe even the new Fox that Dragon Fire Racing helped build, but havent tried those

Dunes to desert to rock crawling, my Fireball Racing +6 with Bilstein's has never disappointed me or broke. I have ridden in Rhino's with Fireball, LSR, XMF, and Twisted Labs long travel kits and all performed great, in fact I couldn't choose which was best, they all worked well. I chose my kit based on ride, quality and that they are 30 minutes from my doorstep, so if somehting did break I could just drive up and get replacement parts. You will be hard pressed to find someone who doesn't think their kit is the greatest though. Choose a name brand kit that will still be there for warranty issues and you can't go wrong.

I have the LSR XTR 6.5" with Elkas and love it. The only drawback is it's a 6.5" and if you break an axle in the dunes chances of finding one are slim until after the trip.

Anybody Local???

LSR is located in Arizona along with XMF.
Fireball racing is in Norther California so thats getting closer. I'm in So. Cal.
Are there any good builder of a long travel near there. I like what Sandlunatic0 was saying about having someone close for warranty issues and fixes or upgrades!
