    Next time we do the White Mtn I'll show you the hill I was told about, it looks really sketchy and steeper, and bigger drop offs on both sides.

    It's not as apparent as the other one being right off the main trail, which is why I think that one gets confused with it. But who really knows lol

    Hmm... you guys are concerning me and getting me excited all the the same time. Well I’ll be up there in late August so I’ll post up some videos of me going up, tumbling down, or smoking the engine to it’s death :rofl:

    If all else fails, crawl control will be activated :anonymous: haha.

    The headwall is probably steepers than 55, but it "flattens" up a bit after the first 5 foot drop or so.

    Here's a pic of it more level

    I have a pic of me standing on the slope, down a bit, let me see if I can find it...

    Edit, here it is

    Quick shitty video from last weekend on Pilot Rock Trail. Likely going up that way again soon, so hit me up if you're in the area and not a dipshit. ;) Disclaimer: I'm a dipshit.

    I'm sure many shops can do it, but I'd prefer to go to the source if possible. King is in Garden Grove (Orange Country, CA). Ground shipping should just be a day there and back, just a thought.

    Side question, how many miles you put on them before the last rebuild?

    I had ~20k on mine and got them rebuilt because I wanted a revalve mostly. But the guy that rebuilt them told me the oil inside was nasty AF and due for a change no matter what.

    I had to change out the spherical bearings in the bottom at about ~12k miles, that's an easy DIY job though

    Too expensive to go thru king. My old neighbor use to do mine for $60 plus parts and oil. Mine are way over due especially cause i wheel my truck. 65000 on fronts. Rears have been rebuilt
    Ive broke 2 of the bearings in the bottom. Cracked in half after some hard hits. I carry extras.

    Not scared at all. I dont have the space to do it or the right things. Thats not a drive way job to me. I want it clamped on a work table. Also dont have coil conpressor though i could probably do it with he shady ones.
