Thanks, here's a little early morning shot on our way to a camping trip. The flares held up well. Got a little dent in one of them hitting a tree but considering what they went through I am impressed.

Santa Brought some new FOX2.0 shocks and steering stabilizer. The shocks are for a 3-5 inch lift since I'm going to be swapping out my 2.5 inch coils for 4 inch coils soon.

The shocks are tuned for BDS whatever that means.

The overall ride is about the same as the factory Rubicon shocks I had on there with the extensions.

Off road it has A LOT more flex, my brake lines are the only thing limiting me so I had to order some new ones. I also have spring clips to install. On one hill I almost lost a front spring.

Of course with each mod there comes more items to support it. After spring clips and brake lines I see exhaust spacer coming next.

BDS Suspension is a company that manufactures lift kits. Those shocks are 'tuned'/set up to work correctly with that lift. I don't know if it makes any difference running tuned shocks with no/different lift.

Maybe kjeeper10 will stop in and comment. He's pretty good with those kinds of questions...

doesn't mean anything brother. fox tunes shocks for TeraFlex and BDS. the mopar valved shocks are rebranded instead of a TeraFlex sticker. they perform the same.

I'm sure there are some minor valving changes... but unless you're Ivan Ironman Stewart, you're never going to feel the difference.

I wish we had known about Lazy Springs before we moved from Florida to Texas! And let me tell you, everyone says Austin's climate is just like Florida and they are lying!!!

Have fun wheeling!

Man, now I am SERIOUSLY bummed we never found that place when we lived in Florida! Looks really cool! Not as much Everglades muck as Corbett, either.

Nice pics! Looks like you all had a great time!
