    Good start there Kyle. Looking forward to helping improve your suspension!

    Probably not the HD I don’t carry alot of weight continuously. On the shocks I’m either going ADS or King.

    December 2018 set things in motion

    I took a corner too fast and sent my passenger front tire into a curb. There was no body damage and the tire stayed on the bead. The rim received a nasty rash and the horns on the lower control arm were bent. So this was an ideal time to install the front @TOTAL CHAOS 2+ long travel race kit w/ 700lb king coilovers

    Camping Setup

    Option A: Wedge Style Camper (GFC/Vagabond)

    Option B: James Baroud Evasion (mounted to snugtop topper with Sportsman package 500lbs static weight) & iKamper Mini (mounted to cab rack)
    BADF0702-1210-4927-AA9F-E455B1BC24DB.jpg

    Going with option B because I need to sleep 4 and have room for gear.

    Also modular. I can take one or the other tents off. And the iKamper mini would fit on my wife’s vehicle.
