x2 had the 90 apart twice didn't galvy the frame the first time, turned out to be super easy to run to NJ to get it done.

Made the same mistake on the 110, didn't realize how easy it was.

Terrafirma sport 2+ kit...
Worst was the the RTC terrafirma steering damper..
Why do you need this?
I'll leave it there.. Not to my taste
Defenders don't wear out they just need more parts.

i would have done bilstein, if i had to do it again.
Keith are you talking the non rebuildable RN things? Or normal 2.0's? My 2.0's are probably the best upgrade I've done so far. Well, once I ditched the heim joints and went back to bushings anyway. And re valved... wait what am I talking about? Probably at the equivalent of bilsteins now! Only I can now rebuild them forever and ever and ever.

Was curious how those RN fox's were stacking up... Considered putting them on the RRC. OME's are way way too stiff.
