If you are talking to me, they are nice. I had some issues to work thru though. The travel on the front was too long and I would bottom out when dropping off anything greater than 2 ft. or when I hit dips in the road at speed. I called Rovertym and we worked thru it. I feel like they are soft but not too soft. The ride is pretty nice. Definitely nicer than the OME's which were 5 yrs old. As far as mounts go, rovertym has fixed the shock tower issue and their adjustable mounts work very well.

spot the problem....265 BFG AT vs 285 BFG AT I was too excited about my new trailer (thanks Dendy) to notice. Dale was kind enough to point out the tire issue. today i switched the booties to the trailer and put the stompers on the rig so things are looking better. All i have to do now is drive straight until i can take care of the rubbing when doing tight turns!!! this thread came along at just the right time. thanks.
