    thanks bro.
    I must say you did a heluva job painting those rims. They look great!

    I think i might have to do the same pretty soon :cool:

    Just wondering i remember you telling me that your napa cv's have worked pretty well so far? can't remember did you do the boot slide mod thing? I'm debating getting them since they are so damn cheap. I feel like I'm developing pretty decent vibes in the front :(..

    Yeah I got so much better results with rustoleum semi gloss black. Far superior to duplicolor.

    So far so good on the napa cv - still planning to install high angle boots on my spare, but haven't done the boot slide mod. Lmk if you decide to do it, I might be down to stumble through the process with you and install high angle boots too.

    rustoleum is good stuff I use it all the time. I also really like montana spray paint. It's a buck or two more than rustoleum and you have to order it online but that stuff is great.

    Sounds good. Do you know where to order high angle boots? Also do you think I will need any special tools to take the boots off?

    I don't think there are any special tools - I'll see if I can find a link to the high angle kits.

    True dat. I went with the napa so that I could keep my sticker as an emergency spare :) that's the one I need to reboot.

    Just got em like 5 or 6 months ago. Yep I don't see why not.. Unfortunately the fellas over at BAMF figured out that king sent me the wrong misalignment spacers though so I'm currently riding with just the passenger 5100. Hopefully they ship these spacers out quick though. I'll let you know and send you a pic of em when I get the spacers.

    Got it all ready for paint and put a coat of self etching rustoleum. I guess I was the first one to get the kit besides one of the guys at BAMF. Very happy with how it came out. Just wish king woulda sent the right misalignment spacers..

    I agree. IMO Jerry is very creative and has some great ideas/designs. I really like the fact that its adjustable. He also used 1/4" plate and it seems very strong/durable. Its one of the only kits out there (that I've seen) that is adjustable besides Isu's kit.

    If anyone wants any specific pictures of it let me know since I'm kind of the lab rat for this kit (besides the guy that works @ BAMF)

    I took them off a few days ago but wanted to keep them till i got my kings. I cleaned em up pretty decently for ya if you want em. Only thing i want to make sure you know is that these were the limiting factor in my suspension (over extending because dakars can flex more than these shocks.) I went to toytec's site and these are 200$ though. Seen em on wheelers for 150$ too. So i figure 50$ (depending on shipping) isn't too bad. Ill PM you some pics when i get home 2night. bushing are in decent shape as well. If you want ill throw in all my old shock hardware as well for free. (bolts/washers)

    EDIT:
    My drive home was so nice. Im 100% satisfied w/ king shocks & BAMF. Now if only the front rode as nice and was as capable as the rear..

    Ive also realized i need to get new mud flaps lol.

    your bumps look the same as mine, if you don't like them where they are either weld them to the top plate or do what I did and drill and tap some holes. Although your ruff stuff plates do look a bit smaller than the ones from all pro. I don't get why AP doesnt flare up the sides of the top plates like your RS ones, seems like a sharp edge for the spring to bend against:notsure:
