    I have some really cool videos of me mudding. Also have video from inside the cab of when I jumped it and they snapped. Dont know how to post videos though. I can get the Billie 5100 front and rear and Total Chaos UCA for under 1k from Downsouth Motorsports. What you guys think?

    True.

    Once I found out from the dealership what all is broke I will make a decision on what to buy. I wonder if I could just work on it in the parking lot.

    Time to get AAA dude! Well worth the money...

    I have the 5100's they are beefier than the OEM billys for sure. I've mobbed down some dirt roads with some gnarly pot holes, jumped it - no problems so far

    Wow, that is no good. I am gonna go with the Fox setup from Downsouth this next month. Little expensive but what the hell.

    It hurts me to see you put your paintball gun on your paint like that. I have the same color blue.....go easy man. lol

    While changing the oil I noticed those front Bilstein shocks looked wimpy with the small diameter rod at the base. I guess this is proof that they are.
