If your worry about that much weight, wouldnt just using heavy duty anti roll bars do the same thing?

I believe the springs are slightly shorter than the main springs so they only come into play when there are heavier loads on board.
Those are the ones Not even expensive either (11 stg each), although IIRC there are mounting cups to fit with those but I can't remember the part number.

They would, but in off road situations they can compromise you with articulation restriction, which in the wrong circumstance can tip a heavy laden truck on its side. I speak from experience but will admit that I was pushing my luck at the time, which earned me the title of "dickhead of the day" from my buddies.

I got a replacement set to shocks from tough dog and will see how they work out - they were not blown just had the wrong bracket/ bushing on them

But here is a weird story went up to la to camp in Malibu saw Barry on the way and another 90 in Santa Monica and Sunday on our way home we were flagged down on the freeway by some dude trying to talk to my wife so we pulled over - thought he might want to buy my car

He jumps out and asks if we are overlanding the us and if we are from England? Wants to know if we need a place to stay etc? Nope sorry just from Orange County. But nicest offer I have gotten from being in a 110. I think I need to have a better story or cover to get some free stuff

Regardless, it looks better every time I see it Jay

That's right, that's the way the really early ones left the factory.

Clowns of the West rally bike? Nice addition.

When you deploy the bike you have to yell "prepare to launch the dinghy"
