I'm pretty sure he's still running leaves.

he has 16" travel shocks... he may not be getting that much travel tho.

You guys have to realize that he has a special leaf pack under his truck. They are f31 deavers and they are meant for our trucks. He is probably really close to 16" of travel because i have a 14" stroke shock and have f31 deavers and im pulling 13.5" in the back.

Since I live here in Orange County where everything is wanna be lifestyles of the rich and famous I have to pay that amount to live.
I live in yorktown virginia.......My house is 3 bedrooms and 2 baths 1400 square feet and a 1200 square foot detached garage sittin on 2 acres 635 a month thats home owners included and the house is only 5 years old u need to move east wayway east

I remember talking to a guy at fox while I was at the fabschool, hauling *** in the desert a shock can travel speeds up to 3-4 thousand feet per second.

The shock still has all of the valving to control the spring in them, so everytime you hit a bump/land or whatever you've got the weight of the truck trying to compress the spring and the shock has to slow it down, same for the unsprung weight pulling on the shock when you hit a hole/get airborn.

I would never run anything single shear and feel comfortable, especially after seeing whats happened to a double shear mount from a single race before.

If you've heard of prerunners then you should know most of them are 2wd. You don't need 4wd for tearing across the desert.

Btw if you act like an idiot you'll be treated as such

Where did he ever say he wishes he has 4wd? I bet his truck would kick yours *** out on the desert, which is exactly what he built it for.
