I installed the bumpstops that came with my lift. But I haven't disco'd yet. Not sure I will unless I start getting on some level 4 trails and the harder 3's. Even if you don't disconnect you still need to add bumpstops if you have a lift or might damage a shock on the uptravel. Aren't you running stock shocks?

Thanks bud! He's doing as well as expected.


I'm glad someone has my back. Brian is a handful to try and keep in line 😉

One of the brakes on the passenger side was squealing all day long. I figured anyone within 5 miles could hear it. LOL

only did it when riding the break. Hoping it was just some dust on the pad. Gonna pop the pads out this weekend and look for any signs of excessive wear.

Question

Wow. That's impressive.. I just shot my first coat today.. Baking out of my oven in the kitchen.. Gotta get a new stove now!
I'll start small, if it gets bigger so be it,
No one around here ever advertises it, so
Maybe I'll get some business when I start doing it more.
