2014 F150 RPG STAGE 2 REAR SUSPENSION KIT
2014 F150 RPG STAGE 2 REAR SUSPENSION KIT
Kit; Frame Support, Hardware, 2x Fox 2.5” Air Bumps
RPG Offroad’s Stage 2 kit will get you our rear frame support/gusset kit with Fox 2.5” Air bumps (minus the National leaf springs like you get with our Stage 3 system). When adding the Stage 2 kit to your F-150, you will not only strengthen the rear frame and gain the peace of mind you are looking for, you will also add more damping power because of the Fox Racing 2.5” Air Bumps. These are the same Air Bumps you will find on a good portion of the race cars competing in the Baja 1000. This product is also compatible with both OEM leaf springs and Deaver Springs.
Why pay hundreds more for less??? Top 10 reasons why you should choose RPG over the others!
1. Over 1,000,000 miles of collective abuse
2. 3 times thicker than the stock frame
3. Only production kit to offer actual Baja Winning Fox 2.5” air bumps
4. Strengthens whole rear frame, not just the weak sections
5. Big enough and Strong enough to run 4” long air bumps to increase payloads and towing
6. 100% Lifetime warranty on your frame support
7. Able to run very little air pressure for smooth and controlled ride
8. Double cross bolt design to eliminate inward frame movement
9. Doesn’t interfere with aftermarket exhaust options
10. No gimmicks, just proven results with the off-road miles to prove
Now for the long story of why RPG over the others:
The RPG system is nearly 4 times the size of other kits out there today. The frame support is over 3 times thicker than the stock frame, and transfers the energy to a much larger cross section of the frame, and not just the inner weak part that has already proven itself prone to fail. Unlike other systems that are out there, we also intentionally didn’t enclose the whole frame rail. We left the inner rail open with the theory that in case of a rear-end collision, the frame still has a path of least resistance to follow. Another major benefit of going with the RPG Stage 2, 3 or 4 system is the fact we use a full size 2.5” bump stop vs. a 2.0” bump stop that are typically only found in light buggies and mid sized trucks on the racing circuits.
The Fox 2.5” bump stop is the same bump that is used on nearly every wining trophy truck that Fox sponsors. The reasons why you want to run a 2.5” vs. a 2.0” on your Raptor is the following. A 2.5” bump stop has nearly 100% more piston surface than a 2.0 Air bump, plus has far greater amounts of fluid in the bump stop body itself to help with cooling the bump. This means you can run much less valving, much less nitrogen pressure and a much shorter shaft than a 2.0” inch like found on our competitors kits. The Fox 2.5” bump stop only requires 2.5” of shaft travel vs. 3.75-4” of shaft travel with a 2.0”. This results in a bump stop that sits further away from the axle. With the RPG kit you won’t be hitting the bumps around town on every dip, pothole and speed bump, and most importantly, your bump stop wont be the one controlling the ride, the shock will. The only time a bump stop should be felt is in the last 15-20% of your full bottom out travel. It should only be a last line of defense, not a ride characteristic tool. Our rebound valving is setup so it doesn’t interfere with the ride, and comes out fast as opposed to slowly like you will find on our competitors kits. A fast rebound setup will prevent double bumping in whoop sections and allows for the bump to keep up with the whole suspension. With our kit, you only need to run 90psi for both on-road and off-road. There is no need to ever adjust it from there and it offers displays very little heat buildup which results in a much longer life span.
The 2.5” Air Bumps are used similar to an Air Bag System. 200 psi in the Air Bump is roughly equivalent to supporting 3000 pounds in the bed, and the air bumps can be filled up to 600 psi, supporting up to a theoretical 9000 pounds in the bed.
The RPG frame support offers a lifetime warranty for it’s original owner and for over two years now has been the most tested, most abused and best selling kit on the market with thus far (knock on wood) zero warranty returns. We have the video plastered all over the website to prove that the RPG kit paired with a Fox Racing Shox bump stop is second to none.
