    The Fox 2.5x8" C/O does need some changes to fit into the JD kit. These will not fit in the standard configuration.

    -1" shorter eyelet
    -Raised spring retainer
    -90* Fitting out of the shock body
    -Different hose routing. The standard layout uses a -10 hose that is 18" long with what I believe is a 7/8" hose port on the body cap. The fitting is pretty large for the shock to fit into the coil bucket as JD intended. You may have to go down in hose size to a -8 and a body cap with a smaller port to allow the usage of a smaller hose fitting that will clear the bucket and shorten the hose a couple of inches to allow the resi to fit in the appropriate spot.

    This is just off the top of my head so I may have forgotten a thing or two but those are the main changes.

    Is this detail for the 2.25" over LT? Any body have details of a Fox 2.5 DSC for a stock length JD setup?

    This if for the JD kit that uses a 2.5x8" shock. I wasn't aware that JD was building a stock length kit? If they did, it would use a different shock.

    You can't really run an 8" shock with a stock length stuff. There is a thread on here where it lists how to convert 6" shocks to be able to be run with stock length stuff. But you need to run like an OE replacement kit from any one of the manufacturers for the stock length arms.

    I appreciate you’re response. Sounds like the Fox shocks won’t fit without considerable modifications.

    Not saying that at all. You just have to know how to order or the parameters that work. My assumption is that none of the big name companies make a shock that fits this kit "out of the box." I have yet to get my hands on a kit to try though.

    The kit is designed around an off the shelf 8” King shock, the hose length and fitting is the only change

    Forgive me and my inexperienced shock knowledge. Sounds like I can make the Fox shocks work with custom requests. I was going to go with accutune with this setup and I’m sure they can make it work.

    Yes, they can if they order the above posted specs. Why not go through JD?

    I know they are a Kings dealer never thought to ask if they could order Fox shocks for me. I wasn’t planning on running a secondary bypasses shock so I like fox’s DSC shock. My application is mostly a DD with going on fire roads for work occasionally.

    I believe they are a Fox dealer as well. Worth asking while you’re ordering your kit since they know the specs.

    So you want an adjustable shock beyond what comes with the valving. King makes a shock that does the same thing
    https://accutuneoffroad.com/product...lovers-compression-adjuster-remote-reservoir/

    If you are not wanting a secondary bypass shock but the advantages of the bypasses you'd need to get their ITB COs. But IMO that's a waste you are paying A LOT more for a CO that makes some pretty big compromises where if you just went with the Std RR or adjustable RR then you have the option of upgrading to a true bypass if you ever wanted or needed too. BTW King also makes a shock that does that.

    I just got everything from JD they valve the shocks to their specs and set up everything that needs to be done to fit with the hoses and fittings. No need for me to figure that out and relay that to another company for my COs.

    Had a few more hours at today. It’s slow progress, but I plan to have this thing ready for welding by the end of the month I threw on some primer so the metal wouldn’t rust until then.

    I’m going to try to post as much as I can along the way for those still wondering what is all involved. By far this is the most time consuming part. 3FB737EA-7E43-4A35-B820-35B85BFDE644.jpg

    am looking at a grinder to buy
    for installing this kit,
    regarding prepping the metal bare for welding.

    Anyone know which one is best?
    I've heard some necessary features are:
    -4.5"
    -corded
    -trigger
    -better than the $20 Harbor Freight one that is loud and shakes

    which narrows it down to
    -Milwaukee 11 amp, $130
    -DeWalt 13amp, $150
    -Ryobi 7.5amp, $60

    I imagine more amps is better, but for some reason the DeWalt despite being the most amps, has the lowest RPM (9000) while the others are 11000
    The Ryobi seems most popular, with like 300 reviews vs 15 reviews on the Milwaukee
    though all 3 of their review average ratings are pretty good

    Just going to say I have the Ryobi and I like it. I imagine I'd like whichever one I bought...but I bought the Ryobi because of the rotating grip which is handy.

    I would recommend the Makita. I've had mine for over 20 years and it is indestructible. Been through more car projects than I can count...
