I saw a guy with a 2.0 at Tony's Hobbies yesterday. His truck looked great! Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to run with him, with my 1.0.

Got to run my truck for first time today. It's certainly a better truck than I am a driver. Amazingly nimble. Does not feel like a tank at all. Was carving tight indoor turns no problem.

Hi all
Is the kit setup what most of the TLR team are running? Apart from minor changes in diff and shock oils....
Cheers

It looks from the setup sheet that the link positions are different also

I think the box stock camber link locations use the 1.0 locations. The team setup uses the new camber link slots

I feel for you guys that just bought a 1.0 and dropped coin on all the upgrades... But damn if I don't love my new truck!!!

You guys that are Doing the upgrade route - don't forget the shock towers. I think the new camber locations are key to the way this thing handles.

The setup on the first post is what Ryan and I have been running. It is shock changes you already meantioned as well as some camber link changes and ride height.

Front from the 1.0 rear is new locations.

Yes camber links make a big difference with the new towers. Chassis layout made a huge difference as well. Lots of testing went into that.

So I just finished the build. Well, I have to do my shocks yet with the 2x 55 pistons. I was thinking: How are you guys check and measure the front toe on the truck without a huddy setup rig?

Also, whats the deal with the front sway bar? It's almost like it's to short. I can't get the end of the bar to stick through the end. Whats the trick to setting these, front and rear. I'm used to haveing a ball link that you can lean forward or back to change pre load.

Thanks

So in anticipation of my parts, I started on the HD diff cases. Pre-threading is definitely the key. I used a stock screw and my mini drill and didn't strip anything; granted the screw did get hot. I'll get those finished up along with the shocks tonight.
