you would think its pretty much self explanatory .its a kit which has a long amount of travel in the suspension.

if a stock truck only has 9" of suspension travel and you install a kit with 24" plus of suspension travel .then it would be long travel.

as far as how they survive is all up to how they are setup.long travel suspension,air bumps,proper spring rates,proper shock valving,and a reinforced frame to no end.hell most desert trucks are running full tube frames .
