    dont waste you time with URD if you plan on wheeling you truck. I went back to the factory intake after the I hydrolocked my truck 3 times running the URD....I was driving in an AZ monsoon BTW, not forging rivers....and I was running the "hydroshield" pre-filter.

    Right now im running the factory intake with the hose removed, OEM paper filter, zero issues. I replace it about 4 times a year.

    Damn man! I've heard lots of mixed stories about people hydro locking engines with this intake... luckily Idaho is a desert that rarely ever gets rain. I haven't seen a good downpour here for years now. Just small scattered showers a few times a year. Still though...

    dude, I live in AZ... we average like 8" of rain if were lucky compared to your 12.5 hahaha. If I was able to hydro lock it out here I absolutely wouldn't run it anywhere that gets more rain than we do... which is just about everywhere haha. This is real desert :p

    The dunes are like 1000 ft lower in elevation than the rest of the state so they don't get much snow. you may find about a foot of it in some of the more shaded spot. We can usually hit the dunes year round. The rest of trails I hit basically close down unless you have a snomobile though because of how deep the snow gets.



    Those quad rates are crazy! Is there even much point to that? So do the spring seats between each spring slide up and down the shock body as the springs compress? I've never seen a dual rate in person.

    Yeah, the seats slide along the shock body. And 4 of them are way too many!

    Lots of expensive shit
    The bottom spring hits the bottom of the shock body. It's supposed to help with bottoming out, that's the theory. RJ must have gone to FOA today

    From a technical stand point this is a poor quality photo. Not evenly lit, cut off their feet, the truck is more of a after thought and doesn't add much to the photo. (I paid for my truck and a mortgage with my cameras) But to be 100% honest my first thought when seeing the shot was It looked like a fun day and I bet their day was more entertaining than mine.
