JohnDoe About the shocks, when I put together my hybrid lift at 4wheelparts I went with the Pro comp Pro runners, they're valved the same as the 5100's and at 80 bucks a pop with a LIFETIME warranty. It's hard to beat. I'm not sure the warranty is still available at 4wheel parts though.

I'm saving for shocks, trackbars, and a regear and Detroit so I can finally finish up my super 35. Speaking of springs anybody running ZJ coils up front? I figure they have to be better than stock coils and spacers..

Hopefully I'm not about to get flamed, but for the price, I love my skyjacker hydros. I've only put a few hundred miles on them, but I am very happy with them. Skyjacker has a rebate going on right now so it'll come out to about $25 a shock. Even though Skyjacker is generally known as a crappy brand, it seems like the ones running this shock are happy with it.

Come on up to North East Oklahoma and we will show you what a world famous park looks like. although I have wanted to visit Texas and Arkansas for some trails. But it's hard to deny Disney when it is only 1.5 hours away.


And there is a time and place for mud, it's just not common.
