Doug,
How do you like them? Better then the OME's? Why? I have a blown rear right now and I'm thinking about the koni's... do you think they will last longer?

With the shoter front mounts do your shocks bottom out before the bump stops do? Are those the RN ones? how much did they run you?

Thanks
Steve

By the way your seats look great

THey're very stiff. Haven't put them to the articulation test, but they ride on the road well, and the truck handles like a dream. Did some drifting in gravel a few days ago, and I couldn't see how I could improve the handling much.

These oversized Raids (huge cylinder and piston) went through last year's Dakar end to end, one set per truck. So they can take it. They have extra rebound top and bottom to prevent metal to metal contact on whoops and jumps. They are expensive.

Doug,
I would love to get a summary of your suspension and driveline enhancements so I can leverage your learnings on a "to-do" list for my NAS 110, to use as a roadmap for drivetrain upgrades. Sounds you like you have reached an endstate you are happy with.

Looks like your rear pinion seal is leaking ;-)

What do these shocks do that the American shocks don't? Is there an advantage? How much are they?

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

1. My drive line is stock except for a Tom Woods DC rear drive shaft.
2. Springs: OME 751 in front, 755 rear. I don't want more lift.
3. Scorpion HD sway bar with disconnects and 2" spacers.
4. Raids as above.

Buck,
The Raids supposedly wear longer in extreme heat-building conditions. They have extreme rebound to prevent bottoming out at speed over whoops (see third post above). Caveat: I have not tested them yet under extreme conditions but will do so at the next NVTR on December 8th.

John C.,
Can you quote a price from 4X4AG?
