one u off road

does anyone here have FIRST HAND experience with one up off road? I am considering buying a truck with their lift already installed. I have driven a lot of lifted trucks in the past both good and bad. How do they drive? bumpsteer? trac-bar angles look bad...but at 16" of lift the only way around it would be a triangulated 4 link in the rear but then theres the gas tank...anyways any input would be great.

ooh got it... One Up Offroad Home they have big radius arm lifts...i was trying to compare that to others i have driven. one of my last trucks was built by wfo concepts and i could drive it down the freeway with 1 finger...set up really well etc etc...on the flip side i've had trucks with horrible steering habbits etc etc

Raul have you installed or driven? one of my main questions is the rear trac bar...it looks like its got a crazy angel...any binding while the suspension is un-loaded ie: small jump? ive watched some of the vids posted on youtube...so far it looks good

They are great...if its all OUO parts and most specially installed at Truck Toyz...then odds are it will be the best driving lifted truck you have been in. I drove one with the 14" 4 corner coilover setup and it was very nice.

2008 F250 FX4 CC SB Black on Black STOCK and SLOW...Rolled over and TOTALED...

2008 White with Black interior FX4 CCSB
Black C6 Vette
As far as actual HP numbers I have no idea. It don't snap your neck but.....It feels good.

As for handling jumps, the OUO trucks are designed to get launched.
