Long travel plans

Okay so i've been looking around and need some help with this question. I found 6" over long travel plans. I found them on ebay and then went to the website. the site is called longtravelplans(dot)com. now before i go and spend the 30 bucks for the plans does anyone know if it is worth it? i wont have a problem doing the fab work but is this a kit worth making? If anyone knows anything about this kit could you please help me out i would really appreciate it. thanks

heard alot of talk about them over the years when peeps are trying to save a buck..but never anyone who actually built them. i would not trust the geometry myself, is it built off a working cad model?

ya i was just thinking about trying it out and saving some money and if worse comes to worse everything is horribly designed it breaks and i have to put the stock suspension back on... but also i could build my own long travel kit and do just as good as someone who payed top dollar for the billet arms and what not.. and yes its off a working cad model

Hell your arms are the cheapest part of a LT kit.....and how can you really build the kit right without a Jig??? Id rather pony up with a builder that has been there done that with all the R&D and shock testing

My 2 cents

dont get me wrong im not trying to do this just to save some money im doing this just to do it. i've been doing bumpers, light racks, cooler racks and easy stuff like that for rhinos and now im in the process of building a 4 seat cage and was hoping to do this lt kit. i just found this and was wondering if anyone else has seen it. thanks for your help though its greatly appreciated

there are a few people in lompoc that have lt kits look at theres if they will let you remove them make a jig and then your set ...from my experience heim"s don't do well at pismo my last kit had them and they where shot after about 30hr's at the beach salt and sand just not nice to them..so think about that when building a set. the steering has done well with hiem's but the a arms did not .... bigjim has a good point about the a arms are not a lot and the big names have done a ton of testing with shocks.... and the shocks are what makes a bad or grate kit .... wish you luck with what ever you do

I have these prints. But after doing a ton research I opted to buy a Magnum kit. Add up all the parts you need, then price out the material you will see the savings is very small. It's risky building a kit without a jig.
