I think it is a decent set up. I am using one on my build. There are better ones for sure, but for the price this one is hard to beat.

on a dd baja, i dont think i would try it. its gonna make your turning radius bigger, harder to steer, and twitchier on the highway.

i agree, IF you use the cheapo latest rage rack. the SACO one has more movement (recuced turning radius) and it has a slower ratio (less twitchy)

I was checking out Pacific Customs website and ran into a rack I have not seen before, it looks like that one, (the latest rage, wright copy) but its made by saco and is made in the US. Must be new because Ive never seen that before at PC.

yes, unless you want to spend $500 for a decent rack and tie rods etc. stick with a stock box and beefed tie rods.
