    Subbed to see what exactly UCA skids look like and hopefully how you manage to drag them over rocks

    Well see on order to get the ultimate approach angle you remove or self clearance everything up front. This exposes the UCA to the rock walls I plan to ram aGnus into. So its a vertical skid plate attached to the UCA made from a toilet seat :eek:. This allows me to slide right up the rock wall. Then the other skids take over allowing for further progression up the wall until I stand it on end.

    Then I am just gonna get out, leave it there, grab my walker from the back seat and slide/roll off into the sunset. :D

    What spring rate are you running on the front? Thinking I should go with 700lbs

    Yeah they are 700lb on BOSS 2.0 shocks. Rides awesome although I will say my preload is low due to the 2 inch body lift. My CV axles sit almost level. Next set of coilovers will have 700lb springs on them too.

    In the rear I currently have Toytec standard coils. They have been fine so far but I have some additional weight to add this coming year. Gonna move to Toytec HD rear springs.
