    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.

    Looking at the rules (engine and body must match) and they only allow LS3 or ford 5.0. I guess toyota is out of the question then...
