well finally got some shocks for the rear suspension , i couldnt make up my mind on what brand or to get regular or bypass shocks, then i saw these in some classifieds and couldnt pass them up . They are Fox 2.5 x 16 2 tube bypass shocks with a piggyback resivoir. They are pretty long 42" extended and 26" collasped.

Now i just need to get my leaf springs on order and i will be ready for some straffing runs out at the pits

Those look really sweet man. Have you done much looking on the TTORA board for how the prerunner guys are running their suspensions... I know a few of them have some pretty sweet set ups....Also check out how these guys are building theirs... http://www.trailslesstraveled.com/

Can't wait to see it in action though....

The area just before Simco road on the right hand side of the highway heading towards GrandView. I dont know the real name for it thats just what i was told it was called .

Is it not legal to ride out there ? I've seen people riding out there and shooting there too .

I think its unsafe to be shooting out there since it looked more for offroad vehicles .

It is called the Grandview Sandwash area. Check out the post from Wild West. That is where we are doing are cleanup in April. Also we are trying to save the area. Right now itis good to go and play but unless A land swap is worked out with the Feds it will be shut down. As for the shooters they have the same right as everyone else. I like to wheel but I love to just go shoot too. It is usually whoever is there first has the right of way.:jeep:
