Re: Full traction coilover conversion?

I'd like to see one too. Are there kits available for this, or would it be a full custom job?

Full traction makes a kit, so does fabtech and skyjacker does also.

Re: Full traction coilover conversion?

Sweet Moses.....I thought you were getting a OUO kit?

Full Traction is real good.
Fabtech not as good
Skyjacker....really not as good.


Pics of the Full Traction (it's a bolt on kit...some cutting and drilling required)







I got the pics from Jesse at FarmboyFabrications




I believe "hotstik" who is a member here is running one.

They've got some nice looking stuff, for sure. It looks like they only offer conversions if you want to go with 8" or more of lift though. Full Traction may be the same way, but I can't find anything on their website about a coilover conversion. I wouldn't want to go with more than about 4" of lift, but a coilover would be nice.

Re: Full traction coilover conversion?

Full Traction 4-8" is what they list it at (you can stretch them to ~10.5").

One Up Offroad is nice...but they mainly deal with larger trucks as mentioned. I believe the smallest that Hoppert has put on a truck to date is a 14". And they aren't exactly cheap

Different designs......FT is a 5 link (counting the trac bar), OUO is considered a 3 link unless you move on up to their 900 series which is a 5 link.

I like the Full traction system. I didn’t see where they mentioned anything about the rear suspension. Do you have to purchase add-a-leaf, new spring packs or do the stockers work ok?
