An easy way to add a bypass shock to our Ford Raptor long-travel kit is with our pre-made weld-on mounts. It’s laser cut and formed and fully MIG welded ready to go. It locates off the top of the OEM coil bucket and then mounts the frame rails for maximum attachment & strength. This is designed for our custom FOX 3.5 bypass shocks with the proper tube layout, valving, dimensions and piggyback res. We’ve spent extensive time testing getting these shocks dialed in for our kit. We also have them cerakoted gray which is a high performance ceramic coating used in FOX’s trophy truck race shocks. We supply aircraft AN bolts for the upper and lower shock mounts that have the proper grip/shoulder length for maximum strength. We also include bolt-on brackets to relocate the brake lines at the frame for proper clearance and routing.
Adding a bypass shock to our long-travel kit adds a ton more control and bottoming resistance since they are position sensitive. This allows for a soft plush ride through the small stuff that doesn’t bottom out easily through the bigger hits and g-outs. You’re able to tune the shock by adjusting the compression and rebound adjusters to really dial in the ride based on how you’re driving it.
Bypass mounts come raw as they need to be welded on. We recommend spraying them with black Steel-IT after welding.
