The Backcountry 2.0 Suspension System from Carli is about leveling your truck the RIGHT way. It's designed for people seeking light to medium off-roading while still maintaining good on-road driving. Utilizing Carli SPEC 2.0? diameter shocks tuned for slow to mid speed off road use as well as all-around comfort and ride quality while driving in town, on the highway, towing, or hauling. Carli SPEC 2.0 boasts an aluminum body, hardened steel shaft, and full rebuild-ability. The shocks contain premium 5WT oil to balance lubricity, consistent damping and the widest available range in temperature variation. Your truck will sit 4.5? higher in the front and have more wheel travel thanks to the taller, lighter rate coil springs. To accommodate the additional height and travel, the kit contains radius arm drop brackets, improved brake lines, an adjustable track bar, and caster adjusters to improve on the stock handling.

We have found that this is really THE kit for those that "use their truck as a truck." Basically, for the owner that drives their truck pretty much everyday on paved roads, and hits up some back roads and light trails on the weekends to go hunting or camping, this is the one. While it may not have the capabilities for extreme off-road use as some of Carli's other kits, the Backcountry does handle the best under the previously mentioned conditions from what we've experienced.

This system is designed to be paired with a rear leaf spring upgrade to achieve the proper stance.
