    Trucks lookin' badass. How's your cb antenna location for reception? I'm most likely going to mount mine back there somewhere too.

    Had it tested and it's 100% reception.

    An ideal location.

    Rad, thanks. I like what you've done to the rig, any plans for the near future? Besides possibly the tube bumper with skid & light tabs?

    Where did you get your lower shock mounts from? They don't look like TC.

    Not sure but I think they can be found on trailgear.com.

    Had my fabricator get them for me.

    I'm pretty sure those are not trail gear mounts. If you talk to your fabricator please ask him.

    If you have a quick minute can you take a picture of the lower shock mount from a side view. I like that they don't sit as low as the TC mounts and not as long.

    Thanks a lot, I appreciate it. I've been searching for those lower shock mounts all day and I can't find them anywhere.

    I really like your rear set-up. I was going to just do a rear cross member under my bed for my 10" shocks but I won't be able to take full advantage of the up-travel.

    Are you able to tell a huge difference over stock beside valving?

    I noticed you have limit straps. Have they been put to use or do you have them for precaution?

    What size tube is that? 1 3/4" or 1 1/2"?

    I sent a PM to supermoto but I haven't heard back from him.

    Thanks.

    they are blitzpro ambers facing the rear.

    I took the windshield mount and chopped the suction cup end off with bolt cutters and wedged the thick wire line into a cd groove in the cubby under my stereo. it a perfect snug fit and is totally out of the way.

    So is the wire what's holding it up? And you guessing by cd groove you mean the small gap in between that cubby and the black piece holding the dash in? Like the piece under the ash tray

    Man if it's not too much to ask, would you mind taking a photo of what you made your mount look like and a picture of how it's stuck in the dash like you have it? But only if it's not a hassle or anything
