The Rock!

Just some poser shots I took the other night on a big rock just off the trail. I need a better camera, this one sucks at night.

what springs do you have in the rear? They don't seem to compress much to me.

I hear that a lot. haha

Yeah, I didn't realize how far the truck was up off the ground until I got out. That's what you get with a friend that is always like "just a little more". lol

They are 6" skyjacker softrides. They aren't as soft and don't flex as much as I was expecting when I got them, but the shackles help. They get the job done.

This is about as much as I get before the tires start coming off the ground.

Gotta see what she can do. That's how I roll

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. They don't look like they flex as much. Truck looks good though, I have come close to rolling a couple of times. To the point that when you lean inside the truck the truck tries to roll. I didn't have the guts to get out though.

That's how it always works. My scarred up passenger side step is friend induced damage. lol

I'm thinking they'll loosen up some over time. They are still brand new. I also think the trac bars are keeping the tire in the air from falling down as much as before. I can see in some pics I've taken that the shackle isn't moving as far in as it was before the trac bars.
