OVERLAND Series: PART 1

2020 FORD SUPER DUTY F250 BAJA FORGED Edition

We are starting our series off with our BAJA FORGED Ford F250 4wd. This was the perfect platform for what we needed but it can be a pretty big truck for most. We wanted a vehicle that could handle the weight we were adding, still be able to tow our 32 ft fifth wheel, and act as a chase truck with a good ride. So we chose the F250 as the platform since it checked all the boxes on our list.
I want to start off by talking about what is underneath this truck and what it takes to support the heavy load that was added. The number one thing that gets overlooked when someone is setting up their vehicle is their suspension set up. When building these amazing vehicles to go out and do what you need it to do, a lot of people focus on the camping set up first and not what is supporting you getting there and back. Adding that new heavy load is one of the number one things that affects the way your vehicle handles as well as adding wear and tear in a different way.
Your stock suspension is set up to carry your factory weight and most are set up to handle mostly street with light off-roading. When adding this new weight it puts a lot of stress on your suspension, steering components, and much more that can break or fail when you are out on a trail.
We have been on wash boards roads that have done more damage than a more technical sections. This is why retorques are extremely important before AND after going on a trail. Also, always make sure to BRING TOOLS with you when heading out.
On our F250, we installed the ICON Vehicle Dynamic 4.5″ stage 5 kit …this kit includes 2.5 Shocks, Dual Rated springs kit, adjustable trac bar, Dual Steering stabilizer and Upper and Lower 4-link system. We get asked a lot by our customers why we push ICON so much and the truth is we believe in their product! ICON offers a holistic engineering style, which means they build all their components to work together for the best possible engineered product. We offer may different suspension brands and are familiar with most of them out there and all brands offer different pros and cons. When we suggest a brand to our customer, it’s because we know it’s the best one for your set up, even if we don’t sell the brand.
In addition to the ICON kit we added the Hellwig Product front and Rear Sway Bars, plus their Bigwig Airbags and the Viair OBA (On Board Air) system as well as the Transfer flow midship Tank to get that extra mileage range we were looking for.

4.5″ ICON VEHICLE DYNAMIC KIT INCLUDES :

  • DUAL RATE SPRING KIT
  • REAR LEAF SPRINGS
  • FRONT 2.5 VS PB CDCV PAIR
  • REAR 2.5 VS PB CDCV PAIR
  • ADJUSTABLE TRACK BAR KIT
  • DUAL STABILIZER KIT
  • 4 LINK FRAME BRACKET KIT
  • FRONT UPPER LINKS

FRONT LOWER LINKS

In this article, let’s focus on suspension. This kit comes with a Dual Rate spring…If you notice from the picture above that the top of the spring has a tighter coil than the bottom of the spring. This is how you can tell it is a dual rate, otherwise the coil spring will look the same from top to bottom. The top of the coil is the 1st phase of the spring, this is for street driving. The bottom half where the coil starts to change is called the 2nd phase and this portion is used for the heavier conditions or off-road. I always recommend going with a dual rate spring to give you the best of both worlds. Some companies also have a heavy duty spring that can help with that added weight, like a roof top tent or the extra gear, but those are mostly for vehicles that have a rear coil spring set up.
This suspension set up has a 2.5 VS PB CDCV shocks…. Now for the average person that is a mouth full of acronyms, but here is the break down of what that all means. 2.5 is the diameter size of the shock body. VS means “Vehicle Specific”, this is more important than most people think because not all shocks are VS. Some companies will have the correct length and ends you need for your vehicle but only offer a few options for the valving… and the valving in how the shock works is everything! PB means “Piggy Back” which is talking about the reservoir that is located on the side of the shock body ( you can have a PB or a RR, “Remote Reservoir”, which is attached by hose that can be mounted away from the shock body or to another location of your choice.) CDCV is short for “Compression Damping Control Valve”. CDCV technologies allows for 10 different compression damping levels that can easily be adjusted by a knob located on the reservoir. This allows you personally to adjust how you would like your vehicle to ride due to the terrain or load you have on your vehicle. Say your vehicle is a daily driver, so you set the CDCV knob to the softer settings. Now if you want to hit the trails on the weekend, you can get out and adjust those knobs to a harder setting. We played with ours a few times while going out to see what setting we liked ours set to and now we know when we head out just where we want to set them for the perfect ride. So we just used the word “Compression” . Compression is self explanatory, its when the shock compresses from a bump or force. The opposite motion of compression is “Rebound”. Rebound is when the shock returns to its original state after being compressed.
Lets dive inside the shock for a minute. The valving of the shock is what helps control the flow oil inside the shocks. There are small flat valve stacks that sit on top of the shock shaft that is located inside the shock body. The oil for the shock get pressed through the valve stacks and depending on the size of the valve stacks, it regulates how fast the oil flows through it. These shocks have a combination of oil and nitrogen. When you are told your shock has a 210 psi, “Pounds per Square Inch,” they are talking about the nitrogen charge. This is something you have to check every once in awhile. You don’t want to run your nitrogen below 100 psi because it could cause the nitrogen to leak out and then you have no nitrogen and a shock that will not work at its full potential. Check with your shock manufacturer to see where they recommend to set your shocks psi at. We normally charge $10 per shock to recharge them. We check ours before every off-road trip.
Next, at the very top of the photo above, there is a long black bar that has a heim joint at one end, this is the adjustable trac bar. The trac bars job is to center the axle underneath the vehicle correctly. When lifting a vehicle it is recommended to go with an aftermarket adjustable trac bar to make sure that adjust for the shift in the axle position from it’s new ride height.
Honestly… when getting into shocks and all the different types it can get to be overwhelming! So even though I might cover some of the tech lingo and the basics on how it all works, there are some really great videos out there that will cover the more in depth discussion on how a shock works and all the differences. I included some videos below that ICON provided and I suggest checking them out…..
In this article I covered some of the basics on the suspension set up we have on our Ford F250 Super Duty and wanted to help you understand more of the tech lingo as well as the function of it. But really this series is about the importance of your vehicle set up. There are reasons these companies spend so much time and effort to create these products that work. They really do make a huge difference and we want to make sure when you are making this investment into your vehicle that you are making the best decision for your set up. We’re always here to help you select the best suspension combo for your set up.
Overlanding series: Part 1 was all about suspension… but if you follow the rest of the series, I will cover some more products and the importance of them as well as help guide you in setting up the perfect rig for you and your needs!
In this 6 parts series, I will try to cover all the different suspension platforms, but let me know if there is something you would like to see covered in this blog series and I will make sure to include it.
Thanks for reading, till next time…

Get out and Explore…. Overlanding, our new series

Overlanding seems to be a huge topic these days and I completely understand why. For many years people have been exploring our great land and seeking adventures that are beyond the pavement. With the way that our world has been changing we’ve seen a huge increase in the Overland and camping scene.
We’ve been in the off-road industry for over 37 years and every year we continue to grow in this marketplace. As fellow adventure seekers we get a lot of customers that ask us for our opinions on many different topics, that is why we started these blogs. So if you ever have questions about something we mentioned or didn’t mention, reply to this email and we will try to answer it as best of possible.
On this series we will be talking about our Overlanding adventures. There is nothing like getting out there and just soaking it all in and expanding our Horizons….When I am out on a trail and discovering something new that just gives me this a feeling that reminds me that we are all part of something that is so much bigger. There is this great big world out there that is just waiting to be discovered…well discovered by us.
So you are like YES, lets do this!! I am READY! Packed up and ready to head out of town…. BUT are you ready for this great adventure?
I have done blogs about “Are YOU ready to off-road” and it had some great tips but setting up your rig for overlanding is a different game. This month we will be talking about Overlanding and some basics to start with, but there is a whole big world when getting into this subject. For now I wanted to start with the foundation.
This will be a 6-part series to make sure that you understand everything you need before heading out. Each week we will cover one Vehicle and the set up on that vehicle. Each featured build vehicle has a completely different set up for a different life style, use, or specific Rigs. We will also include one product review for an essential camping item and a recommendation for a destination point.
The first section about the vehicle may get a little technical but I want to make sure that I cover everything to make your adventure the best it can be.
The proper set up is very crucial and often overlooked. This could make or break your trip. There is so much to talk about on this topic, so I am going to dive into mostly suspension and the basic lingo that you need to know, if you want more technical tips, just email me and I will answer them the best I can.
The product I will go over will also be on our website at LGE-CTS.com and you can purchase directly from our website. If you need help building your off-road or overland rig and getting set up, Let us build it for you! Contact us and make an appointment.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy our series about Overlanding.

FEATURED PRODUCT

METHOD RACE WHEELS BEAD GRIP TECHNOLOGY

I picked the Method Race Wheel Bead Grip as our featured product on this newsletter, mainly for the reason that it’s great technology and not a lot of people know about it and they should. When off-roading the first thing we do when hitting the trail head is air down our tires and make sure they are at the correct PSI for the terrain we are about to hit. What some people might not know, is you can’t go below a certain PSI on most wheels, otherwise you will pop a bead and no one wants that. You may hear about beadlock wheels and if you are a serious off-roader you have them on your vehicle. Bead locks are great and you can air down to low as you need. The issue with beadlocks, they are not D.O.T basically they are NOT street legal and beadlocks require maintenance they can loose air and you need to check your bolts. The BEAD GRIP Technology from Method Race wheels, allows you to run a street legal wheel and to still be able to air down to that lower air pressure that you need for the dirt road. Plus, they cost less then a BeadLock wheel. Check them out on our website, HERE for more information and pricing.

FEATURED DESTINATION

LONE PINE/ALABAMA HILLS, CA

Our featured destination is Lone Pine/Alabama Hills area located in California, located in east of Sequoia National park and Death Valley National Park.

We were introduced to this location from the Nitto Tire, Driving Line Team when they invited us to be in episode 3 of their new series “On The Trial” all the photos above are from our trip when we were there last November.

I picked this location for a few different reasons. One, It’s beautiful here, cold but beautiful. with the Sequoia National Park mountain range as your back drop you can’t get a bad view from any angle.

  1. The history in this area is unreal! Beside the countless movies that feature this area. It is also the home of the famous Manzanar National Historical Site which was a Japanese internment camp, which is a part of our history.
  2. The off-roading and exploring in this area is amazing….so many different terrain and some many areas to go and visit. We checked out the rewards Mine which is this crazy mine that you can drive inside of….My sister drove the Ranger in, I walked. lol.

This was such a beautiful trip and the drive was easy to get up there. I highly recommend adding this to your todo list of trips to explore.

BIG BEAR TRAIL DAY A HIT

So I am sure you have heard me say this before and I will say it again…. We love off-roading and we love to have people join us! A few times a year we will invite our friends and customers to hit the trails with us. We do different levels of trails and yes sometimes we push people to go a little bit beyond what they are use to… but I always say it’s better to go out and learn how to handle these terrains with people that know what they are doing for your first time then. Whenever we are invited to go out with Off-Roaders that are more experienced then us, we also try to say yes… It’s were we learn the most. So, if you are ever nervous about joining one of our trial days, don’t be, we are here for you!
So, a few weeks ago we hit the trials of Big Bear, Ca. We met up in Fawnskin, CA at 9:30 am on a pretty warm Saturday for our local mountains where we briefed the group on trail etiquette for those new to the scene. Wheels were up at 10:00 am as we departed north on Rim of the World Drive to the trail head at 3N14. We had 33 vehicles join us from all over southern California show up for a fun (unofficial) trail day on a early Saturday morning. From modified Jeeps, stock Jeeps and SUVs to Raptors, full-size trucks and daily drivers. Of course we took our 2019 Ford Ranger to lead the group, and our Gen 1 Ford Raptor for our recovery/Chase vehicle.
We had a pretty amazing group…. large, but amazing mix. A lot of new faces joined us and some familiar faces attended to also lend a hand and support the group including Sean Holman and Jay Tilles from The Truck Show Podcast, the team (Cody, Matt, and Jose) from Trail Chasers Podcast (talk about some fun radio banter), Funshine Jeep Girls Club, Jason and Marcel from Auto Revolution, AJ and the Team from Paramount Automotive and Dave Cole, creator of ULTRA4 Racing and King of the Hammers. Make sure to check out the links below from Trail Chasers and Truck Show Podcast to hear what they had to say about our adventure.
We followed the planned route that we pre-ran a few weeks before using our OnX GPS app and can confidently report that everyone had a great time, even the few vehicles that had to decline the hill climbs because their vehicles just weren’t quite equipped to make the obstacles. Maybe they’ll take advantage of our July Summer Sale going on now (shameless business plug 😉 – details below).
In the end, everyone tackled their fears and did a great job out on the trail. We can’t wait to do it again soon. Hopefully we will see you out in the dirt with us!
Many thanks to everyone who attended and thank you for supporting our small business during this time! We appreciate you!
Thanks!

OnX GPS APP

For our Trail run we will be using the OnX GPS App to track and download our run. We highly suggest that you download this app before you head out on the trail. Make sure to track the run and save it for the next time you want to go back out and see what trails you have already done.
Airing Up or Airing Down….Make sure you have the Right PSI
ARB E-Z DEFLATOR This is one of my favorite gauages to use. We have them in all of our rigs. They are EZ and fast to use.
VIAIR 400PA Air Compressor Kit We have on board air systems on most of our vehicles, but we also have a couple of portable compressors that are great to put in any vehicles for a road trip, on or off-road.
Recovery Gear and More
ARB SPEEDY SEAL PUNCTURE REPAIR KIT SERIES II So if anyone has heard my story about double flatting on Mojave….Good thing the guys brought one of these along.
WARN Heavy-Duty Epic Recovery Kit This recovery kit has everything you need, strap, tree trunk strap, shackles, gloves and carrying bag. For 5 years I didn’t use my recovery kit, then one trip to Moab and i used it 5x’s that trip. So you never know.
Hi-Lift Jack If you have ever taken one of our suspension 101 classes or have been on a trail day with us. I usually talk about Hi-Lift jacks and how amazing they are for so many different reasons. If you buy one from us, let me know if you want me to give you a quick lesson on how to use it properly.
PRO Eagle Jacks This is another item you will find in each one of our vehicles at all time. In fact we had to use it on the freeway today with our Super Duty, you never know when you will get a flat. We were just thankful it was a fast and speedy tire change because we had the right tools.
1Life Trama Kit First Aid kit are a must, but this Trama kit is so much more. A guy named Josh created this kit after being out in the middle of no where and is friend almost lost his life, so josh wanted to make sure to put a kit together that had everything that they could have used. These are a must have for every vehicle.
BOXO Tool Roll Boxo tools are a great tool kit and come with an even better warratny. We have this kit at our shop on display and I love how organized the boxes are. They also come in different color combinations so you can customize them to your liking. I highly recommend them for your garage or vehicle.

What is…. SPECIALTY Vehicle Collision Repair?

What is… SPECIALTY Vehicle Collision Repair

What exactly is considered Specialty Vehicle Collision Repair?

We consider vehicles that have any custom modifications like lifted trucks, lowered cars, classic customs, or custom paint jobs that have any type of damage as Specialty Vehicle Collision Repair. Many standard collision repair shops do not work on these types of vehicles. These vehicle repairs take unique skill and require an experienced shop that has the knowhow to get these vehicles back on the road.

Our team at LGE-CTS Motorsports has been repairing specialty vehicles for over 30 years. We are experienced in all facets of the process. Specialized repair can be challenging due to many variables involved in the repair process. Our background allows us to guide a customer from start to finish, including assistance in starting an insurance claim to executing the repairs while providing guidance for any modifications along the way. Our shop is equipped with the necessary tools and equipment to complete repairs on just about any vehicle, and we have many resources that help aid vehicles back to its pre-accident condition.

One of the keys to having a successful repair is having a shop that is capable of guiding the customer, like dealing with the complicated processes from insurance companies and locating the correct parts for repair or replacement. We have relationships with most insurance companies, and can make this part of the service as hassle free as possible. We have a vast network of resources for parts and supplies, however, we know the most important part of the repair process is the customer experience. Our team works directly with our customers to make sure their vehicle is repaired exactly how they want it.

Specialty collision repair is not exclusively processed through insurance claims either. We are able to get a vehicle repaired whether you pay for it or paid for by another third party. There are many different circumstances that we can help you work through as there are many details involved with this type of repair.
If you are looking for a shop to help with your Specialty Vehicle Collision Repair, or if you have questions about the process, were ready to help, call us!
Vehicle accidents happen and we are here for you!
Have a great day, be safe out there!

ROAD TRIPS… what memories do YOU have?

ROAD TRIPS… what memories do YOU have?

We’ve all taken road trips…
But what have been your most memorable? Why? Is it because of where you went? Or who you went with? Or what vehicle you drove in? Whatever the reason, there is that one memory you have, and we want to hear it! So reply to this post with yours! Here are a few of mine!

OUR FIRST ROAD TRIPS…
For us, my sister and I were fortunate enough to have family and friends that loved traveling the intercontinental North American region. And whether it be traveling, or just working on them, I would say most of our memories were based around cars, lol! But there is something about road trips!

Since we were a few years old, my moms parents have taken us to San Felipe in Baja. 

All of the grand kids would ride in the camper on our grandpa’s 1980 Chevy Pick up. Then we would hit the beach and ride 3 wheeler’s all day long. Those were the good old days! 

Then, when I turned 12, my sister and I took a cross county trip during summer with my dad’s parents. With the trip being almost 2 months long, we had tons of memories, lol! But I do have a most memorable! You all remember grandpa Lou right?! Well I was always dubbed navigator. For some reason I was good at directions and remembering landmarks. These were the days of Thomas guides and AAA Trip Tik maps. So as my grandpa and I were coming to a crazy big freeway interchange, it got confusing to me, but I finally said … I think you are supposed to go that way grandpa … as I pointed to the off ramp that we almost passed! But he quickly turned the vehicle towards where I pointed because he knew I would be right. And my eyes grew wide as we flew across a few lanes in our Winnebago on to the correct highway. Grandpa didn’t say a word… just kept on driving! Lol! 

And of course… I remember my dads first fully custom painted 1979 Ford F100 Ranger. Standard cab short bed. Bright yellow with custom graphics. Just the right proportions. I remember when we would drive in it, and he’d let me shift! That was the coolest thing! But I really remember just how many cool places that ride took us too. Mostly Pismo beach… I loved driving down that beach! 

Well, it’s amazing how many great memories we have based around vehicles, or where our vehicles have taken us. Truly a vehicle is just that, something that transports you somewhere! And even empowers you by what it looks like and what it can do. ! I always say they are extension of our personalities! I do have a Supercharged 635 hp Raptor, lol! Just saying! And we now have this amazing Super Duty that has already given us enough memories to share for a lifetime! 

Vehicle’s are truly such a huge part of our daily lives. Look at how many memories our vehicles give us! Look at how they impact our lives. Look at the memories you will create with your next generation. 

We know how important those memories are, and we’re happy we can help make them possible. We’re here to help you create that connection, that bond, of using your vehicle to create memories that you will have the rest of your life. 

Each customer’s builds are so special to us. To hear and know why they want to build something and to help them accomplish their dream of doing that means the world to us. A build is an investment that will make memories that last a lifetime. 

Let’s create some memories together, because memories are worth investing in!

LGE-CTS Motorsports loves building it all, but has a strong focus in offroad lifestyle driven designs. We look forward to building something with you and we are also here to repair your custom vehicle. 

We appreciate your continued support and love having you as part of our Motorsports family! Thank you for your referrals! It’s exactly what has made us grow over the years!
