Small update:
No pictures as I haven't been home in a couple weeks now. I have a week off coming up, even though I'm getting my wisdom teeth out Im hoping to get some work done on it.

First update, I ditched the Coils and Im going to Coilovers. Im undecided between 14" or 16" 2.5" FOA Coilovers. With my newly aquired bender I now have the tooling to make shock hoops and a mild engine cage.

Second update, My swampers are going on a diet.

What kind of advantage do those grooves give you? Seems to me they might make the tire chunk off a little bit easier.

Have to have edges to grab on to stuff, the more the better, they also help the tires flex so that when aired down they grip better.

That's a lot less that I thought they were. I might have to invest in one myself. Did you get it from a vendor?

i still read the site scott, just cuz i don't post doesn't mean im not here.
I thought about putting them on my truck, and since their "plant" is located here in vegas i decided to go and get a first hand opinion on these. Yes, they're shocks, but you get what you pay for. The mechanics inside of these things are low grade. Im sure after they sell a few they will upgrade the internals but i wouldn't put these on a golf cart.

Im using them for a completely different purpose, then the desert. I know they are not going to work like a king or SAW or Fox, but for the low speed terrain this truck is being built for Im sure they will be fine. I would like to know what you mean by low grade? specially since Im not going to be running these through the wash at 80mph, more like ledges and rocks at 1-15mph.
