Re: Got SHOX!!!!!

Wow. Shocks looks good!

That samurai is going to be huge when you get done. What size tires are you going to run?

Re: Got SHOX!!!!!

Same as I have been running for 5 years, my 38's.
The ride height hasn't changed either. It is easy to lift a truck to fit tires, but its harder to keep it down enough for the trails. A little fender rubbing doesn't hurt.

Re: Got SHOX!!!!!

I have been impressed with my FOX air shocks,first time out they took some getting used to, but altering oil levels/n2o charge can change them quite a bit. I may eventually add a anti-rock style swaybar to fine tune more, but for now they work pretty [email protected] good.

Re: Got SHOX!!!!!

what are you running for oil volume and Nitrogen pressure?
What was the valving that you ordered them at? Have you had to change the valving at all?

Re: Got SHOX!!!!!

Well so far I have set ride height with 300psi n20, oil level is up 15cc over stock, and I have the 40/60 valving. I really haven't played with the setup that much, and they work good out of the box, but can be better. I just wish they had the 16" ones avail when I got mine.
Here is a shot of the rig to get and idea of size/weight differences.

Re: Got SHOX!!!!!

Well you'd better sit down before you fall down. I assume that you are making a joke about the height of the truck? My ride height hasn't changed, and the rear only looks heigher because of the tail lights location. The truck is very stable on 38's and Dana44 axles, and more so now with 100" of WB.
