Icon10 New shocks, max flex and some mud thrown in too

Went over to Josh's(hozII) thursday and got my new rancho RS5000's installed. Should of done it about 10k miles ago lol. My stock shocks had 71K on them and they were toast! Anyway friday went back out there and we wanted to go flex the trucks. With my new shocks and Josh wanted to try it out since he cranked his tbars a little more and added the chevy drop shackles. After that we went and got the trucks a bit dirty. Anyway on to the good stuff.

Here is the vid of the trucks getting dirty. Just playing in some puddles.
Make sure to hit fullsize. You can make the video bigger.

Great pics. Picture 11 is my favorite. I was going to get the RS5000's but I ended up with Monroe sensa tracks, and they suck.

Should of got them man lol. They ride a bit rough, but I think that is mainly because I was use to my stock shocks that were completely warn out lol.

Thanks for all the comments. If you have over 50K and they are just the crap ford puts on them. Then I would definitely change them. I should of done it around 50. Mine were toast.

Its amazing the ride difference you get out of putting on ANY aftermarket high quality shocks.. changing the suspension setup is fantastic on these trucks.. goes from a splooshy motocrap ride.. to a comfy bilstein/kyb ride.. Good stuff.. best upgrade you can do! :-D
