We gave away a kit, installed it and let the winner loose on our test track.


Last week, RideTech took part in a charity-driven event called the FM3 Road Trip -- Cars N Cones. It was cool. We toured through Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky with 80 other enthusiasts. The road trip ended up at a Finish Line party at our HQ in Jasper, IN. Along the way we secretly checked out all of the cars and trucks in search of someone who would receive a free StreetGRIP suspension kit. We picked out one lucky participant with a really sweet original Square Body and the right attitude. THEN we installed the kit during the tour. Once it was done, we let them loose on our test track. The guy, obviously, was thrilled and the Road Trip ended up raising $25K for the Daphne Reynolds "Kick C" Cancer Fund. There's a cool video in the article and lots of Before/After install and testing pics.

Congrats to John and Val Martin.

See you next year, then. It was a really fun, rewarding event with a party every night followed by some hotel parking lot loitering. I think we end in Alabama next year.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.
