    Is it mainly off-road you feel the difference? What's you're rear suspension setup? Did you have your setup tuned for your truck and addons?

    Build thread lists all the things :D
    I notice the difference everywhere. Around town its way more comfortable. Dont notice or feel train tracks.

    Off road is one hellva difference.

    Elka's come tuned for your truck, when you purchase them you fill out all the specs and info on your rig. So you get the right spring weight and such.

    I had assploded my rear 5100's a few months ago, and didnt know which direction I wanted to go for my final setup. So I put 5160's on the rear. They were screaming 'please slow down' yesterday on the dirt roads

    What kind of Trailer is that and where did you pick it up? I am hunting for 5x10 trailer to haul my Flycraft (fishing raft) around this year and this looks perfect. Have thrown it on the roof in years past, but broke my back skiing last year and don't think I should be trying to load a 180lb boat on/off the roof racks anymore. :militarypress:

    Ever come to Moab? I've got a pretty nice little trailer that I'm ready to sell for $450. I packed the bearings a couple of years ago and used it very little since because I got a bigger trailer.

    Installed some new shackles with the Archive bushings. Awesome product and they even link the oem shackle to buy instead of hassling with the stock bushing. Made it a breeze to install. Gained quite a bit of travel. As you can see the oem bushing binds up limiting the down travel. The right side done and the left side still with the oem bushing:

    Just a marketing ploy to get you into the dealership in the hopes that they will sell you a new vehicle and then sell your trade-in for big bucks. They will not offer you any more for your truck if you come in mentioning that you were "asked" to come in than if you just walked in off the street. Want to find out how much they REALLY are offering you for your trade in? Negotiate with no trade in as part of the deal then spring it on them at the last minute. Then you will know how much you are really getting. Either that or tell them that you just want a price for your truck and you are not buying anything.

    Finished up a weekend project adding backup camera, stealth XM antenna under the bed rail cover, new Kenwood head unit with all the Maestro stuff, Key 200.4 for my Kicker KS front stage and a 500.1 for a sub to be added soon. I finally found a use for the Streetwires distribution block that had been living in my toolbox since the mid 90's, lol. PXL_20210412_133501617.jpg

    What light bar did you end up going with in your BAMF? I got the Hybrid bumper on the way, still trying to figure out which light bar to get.

    Nice truck btw
