    Anyone that has them what mileage are you getting out of them before rebuild? How difficult are they to rebuild?

    Electric Dynolock tailgate, TrailGear Slides, , 285/75-16 Yoko Geolanders on Wheelers Type B, SAW 2.0 front and back, Camburg b/j UCA, 1.5" AAL, Ubolt flip, ARB bump.
    I only have 10miles on mine, got them today, but I did some research and the most definintive answer I got was one guy calimed he rebuilt his at 1.5 years/25,000 miles and they looked fine (probably didn't need a rebuild at that time). I'm loosley planning on having to rebuild mine in 2 or 3 years... hopefully. Of course it depends on how you drive them and weathering will be a factor.

    The rebuild kit is basically just some O-rings, and it's cheap ($20 - $30 ea. side). I plan on it being a complete pain in the arse on the first one I do then the other side will probably go smoothly.

    If you can remove the C/O assembly yourself and have any 4x shops or legit suspension shops they'll probably charge an hour labor (?) for each C/O which could be $80-$90 per hour.

    So if you do it yourself $70ish, take them to a shop $250ish.

    I recommend you talk to the folks at WHEELERSOFFROAD.com, I talked to them earlier in the week about something else but they were SUPER helpful and got some odd shock from SAW for me at a discounted price even though they don't carry it = great service + they know their stuff about SAW.

    ShowStop on TTORA ran his SAW to 100000 miles with no rebuild. As long as they don't feel spongy or leak you don't need to rebuild them. I have mine on since 07.

    Sounds good. I hope they last that long.

    Basically how you drive you truck daily and the condition you live at.
