    One step closer to getting Betty back on her feet! Huge thanks to @thefatkid getting things back together. Got some new brake parts coming in for a rear rebuild, so this weekend will be a long one getting the truck back together...

    To be determined... for now, everything is boxed up... long term plans might place them in a new home, but that won't be known till spring time... new axle would mean new shocks

    you can read more about it in the latest TCT Magazine ^

    we moved it over to a different truck, so it is no longer on my truck. for the short time i had it, the ride was great.... adjustability was great, build quality was top notch, reservoir mounts were well thought out, and it looked great too...

    downfalls i saw was the smaller shaft diameter compared to kings and icons, and the rear lengths were not ideal for my application. my rear was setup had too much down travel and would be destroyed the shocks in the long run.

    i was looking forward to running that setup, but it quickly became apparent that it was not in the cards for my truck...

    If you get up to the ID/MT area again this summer let me know. I plan on doing alot more exploring this summer. The Copper Basin area and area just north of North(JW) really needs some good exploring.

    for sure man... talks have been started already about a revisit up north. i need a revenge mission up there where i can complete a trip without finishing on a trailer :laugh:

    new axle this spring should help eliminate some more weaknesses...

    and your story puts a little scare in me about my rear end. Already have to send the front end back to ecgs because ARB had a faulty seal in the locker.

    events like that, will make my preseason maintenance check a lot more in depth for sure... i'll most likely pull the 3rd on our FJC to check all internal bolts before our next big trip as it will be even further from home. too bad the front is such a pain to get to and setup... i'd even like to have those checked out at some point too and rebuilt..
