topguncustomz dual steering kit clearance

i was wondering who all has the TGC dual stabilizer kit and what diff cover your running. i want to beef up the front and add a cover but im unsure of the measurements. TGC is kinda useless in this regard. i was thinking a PML cover would work.

Take a look at the PMF suspensions dual Kit, I installed recently and is really built and good price. Cant say as for the cover but appears it has great clearance for a cover. call Trevor . JIM

both of those use the cover bolts to locate one side
so I was figuring if I bought a thicker cover I might have to take a little material off of the covers flange if anything to get it to work

I did see where someone put a redneck ram on with the duals that article had some good pics I will see if I can find it

here is mine .. the stabilizers don't go anymore towards the cover than the tie rod so that won't be an issue just the cover mount may be and that would't be hard to figure out how to modify IMHO

The only issue you will have will be the thickness of the cover as the shocks themselves are out in front of the tie rod. (ie. the tie rod would contact the cover before the shocks would).

The stock cover is a touch over 1/8" thick IIRC. If you have a thicker cover flange, in theory you could space the axle bracket out a marginal amount if need be using a spacer between the tube and the outside portion of the clamp. It would be hidden once installed.

Let me know if you have any further questions, we are here to help.
