    i'll have to take a photo later...unfortunately sat on the sidelines for this one...they're cracking down on non-employees working in the shop, so i let the pro handle this one..

    i'm really curious to see the flex on the front and rear now with the longer foxes in the rear and the new front setup...

    :(


    good to know...thought never really crossed my mind due to the nature of my wheeling...but glad to hear more opinions on the matter..

    i'm sure i'll hit full droop a few times a year while wheelin but it's definitely not a baja rig...more or less a DD crawler (really just missing a crawl box and 35s)..



    new setup handles amazing though! thanks again jace!

    after installing the foxes in the rear, it was apparent that my front was in need of replacing (felt loose/sloppy compared to the rear that was nice and tight to the road). now everything feels solid to the road all around...excited to trail test the setup now!


    comeon wheelers! get me my rear bumps so i can be done! (for now)

    Check full droop and full lock... you might need limit straps. I have personally seen the CV boots hitting the shock mounts on the LCA before. While it is a rare occurrence just imagine what could happen in the middle of no where....or just be glad you just got a spare CV

    parked on a slight slant in a lot where my nose is down and slants to the passenger front...which puts the driver front up higher than passenger...if that makes sense..so driver side higher and back higher than front

    nothing new for the truck this week...get to test the new setup out tomorrow in the mountains with some snow bashing

    but got quite the project building with the motorcycle...

    centrifugal breather, seal and gasket need to be replaced..
    cam cover gasket needs to be replaced..
    new front and rear sprockets going in with new chain (going +3 in the rear)

    i think after i regear the bike, i definitely won't want to sell it anymore haha

    I know the feeling of having sloppy suspension. My stock setup is getting soo sloppy and loose. Removing away bar didn't help. Your truck is sweeet.

    Hopefully get to see it in person one day.

    thanks man...it's definitely a work in progress but it's getting there...once i get the rear bumper on i'll be very happy with the setup...

    sounds like you got some sweet plans for your rig coming up! i'll be staying tuned to your build to see how that goes...looks like you got some bad ass country up there to explore too!

    if you get things in by may, take the journey down to moab for the big meet! got a few from up north making the journey down..

    but looking at some of the photos you got, i almost want to wheel up there too! haha would give me an excuse to drive my truck to banff whenever i make it out there

    shock update....

    got out wheeling this weekend and got a chance to give the new setup a good shakedown...forgot my camera at home so not many photos but here's a couple..

    me getting buried in DEEEP late season snow..got buried shortly after this photo was taken (slid out of the tracks)..snow was to the doors

    c6e4dee4-6a50-a774_69f3c0a2421d5ae65fa935e7bc9593630bfce30a.jpg


    but found out i do need bumps in the rear...close but would definitely feel better knowing i have something slowing down my shit before my shock...found a poser rock (no photos :facepalm: ) and got the front completely stuffed to the bump and had my tire stuffed fully..the rear definitely had better droop and the other side was completely stuffed (couldn't put my hand above my tire) and unfortunately was fully compressed...so my lengths are damn close and with the wheelers rear in the back, i should be sitting pretty good

    not from this weekend, but the poser rock i'm talking about..

    Cascade-Saxon-McClellan-14_ce72da8750173d1e314a5de1036f8be6ea6d13be.jpg

    driver rear had better droop, pass rear was completely stuffed, driver front was looking similar and resting on the bump..

    The new Craptors actually have a forward mounted camera. Looked pretty sweet.
