    Here is my damage for the trip... you guys will like this.. On the skyline trail i hit a really bumpy part... I heard a loud bang.. like something hit my under side... Then my truck started to get really bumpy! It was very hard to control.. when I got on the free way my truck was bouncing hard on any little bump.. So when I got home I knew my shocks were bad.. but here is what I found :O... So any suggestions on shocks? quick and cheap.

    These trail runs just get better and better. Thanks to everybody that was able to make it out. It was nice to meet some new people and to see a lot of you that made it out to the first trail run back in June.
    Going on these trail runs is the only thing more additive and fun than this site.
    And a big thanks goes out to Danny and Greg for help with the fog light mod to the trucks!

    Nice pics

    Sorry about your shocks. As far as replacements go, its hard to go against bilstein's since they have a lifetime warranty. Not the cheapest shock though.

    If its more time/availability and less about cost (since I believe its your daily driver), I can lend ya my set of billies I haven't installed yet. Just have to replace them when you can. I wasn't planning on installing them until I can get new leafs anyway. They're the F4-BE5-D559-T0 and D560, fitting 95-02 Tacoma's (according to the box). I got them from Wheelers, but you might do better on price through toytec or down south motorsports. Wheelers has always been good to me though.

    If its more of cost that your concerned about, I might be able to be talked into installing these and you could just have my old shocks. KYB gasbusters I believe (I know the fronts were gasbusters and the rears are KYB). Dont think they're leaking, but unknown mileage on them. Not awful shocks and in some circles they're preferred over the Bilstein. Was just planning to change them out because I was going to do the leafs anyway and figured that was a good time to replace it all.

    That sucks! I'm sorry about the shock, it was probably just upset that you submerged it into the lake. ;)

    Hey Jason I was thinking about our next meet at Knolls. I didnt go out very far when I was out there a couple weeks ago since I was messing around on the dunes. Do you think they have trails there that can keep us busy for a day? Well with the trucks I mean? I dont think the dunes will keep us very busy if you get what I'm saying.:cool:

    In Utah? I guess it just depends what you want. All the parts houses will have lower end shocks and struts. I'm not a big fan of low end items though, specially items that will take a beating.

    4 Wheel Parts on 1800 S Redwood might have some good ones, but you'll pay a premium. I wouldn't even consider letting them install it, as they really aren't known for doing things right.

    Shocks are one of those items that I think off-roaders should learn how to do. I'd get a shop to do the coils on the fronts, but you can easily install them once the coils are on. (Fronts are 4 screws each side, and rear are two).

    Well, it wouldn't be a trail run if someone didn't get stuck and something didn't break, so its all good. I'm impressed you made it up some of those hills, like the corner before the "shortcut" you got stuck on. I have to admit I had doubts for a bit.

    I still think you owe us a tree to cut up though...

    Good fun.

    I am sorry I couldn't make it out like I had planned!!! Just couldn't get away from helping get ready for the family barbeque (hauling grills and coolers to the park) and my fiancee ended up having to work on top of it. Looks like fun was had by all! There was even some carnage to be had!

    Did everyone get the Fog Light Mod done that wanted it done? If not, I could meet those that didn't sometime to help them out.

    Shawnelly, I would highly recommend you go with the Bilstein 5100's. I have nothing but good things to say about them. You can get them online from Down South Motor Sports for $282.99 shipped with a discount code for a complete set. Sonny and Marcos at DSM are great guys and will hook you up!

    Here a few more pics.

    On the way out I had a young kid pass me on a four wheeler at the time I though to myself dam that was way too close to my truck. Well when washing the truck today it turns out the kid scuffed and slightly dented the side of my truck. I keep telling myself you go off road stuff happens but I sure wish I was the one that did the damage on someone else. :mad:

    Lesson learned on tight trails if I'm getting passed by a four wheeler or bike I'm getting out of the truck to make sure there is some space between us.
