I'd go with 4 100 lb women instead if you have the choice....


What tire size are you running?

So anyone got any advice on the front shocks? These do not seem easy to remove.

Wait........That was meant for kjeeper's thread.

Trim the plastic or........loosen the battery tray/TIPM to get more room.

Will try. Have to drivers side in, but can't tighten the top bolt as the shock is spinning. What's the trick?

You weren't around for my shock nightmare.

Rust totally sealed the nut too the shaft on my passenger shock. No room fore heat or a cutting tool.

We had to pretty much bend the shock up and get a saws-all at the lower shaft. Cut and then pull the remaining bolt/shaft through the top.
2 hours
