They are in every break of the game, every minute, every second. On this team, we fight for that inch. On this team, we tear ourselves and everyone else around us to pieces for that inch. We claw with our fingernails for that inch. Because we know when we add up all those inches, that's gonna make the ****ing difference between winning and losing! Between living and dying! I'll tell you this - in any fight, its the guy whose willing to die who's gonna win that inch. And I know if I'm going to have any life anymore, it's because I'm still willing to fight and die for that inch. Because that's what living is! The 6 inches in front of your face...

Now I can't make you do it. You've got to look at the guy next to you, look into his eyes. Now I think you're gonna see a guy who will go that inch with you. You're gonna see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this team, because he knows when it comes down to it, you're gonna do the same for him.

That's a team, gentlemen. And either we heal, now, as a team, or we will die, as individuals. That's football, guys. That's all it is. Now, what are you going to do?

I dont plan on riding any of those trails with this truck anyway
It will make a difference in Wharton and my everyday commute though.

I think the next step for the front susp. is to cycle it to see how much travel I am getting...I gotta disconnect the shock though b/c I was looking on Rancho's website and at their spec data and the replacement shocks have a whopping 4.5" of travel I think if I find i can get more after cycling it, I will get another set for the front (same mounts and same collapsed length) with more travel. Or just get a shock hoop or tower fabbed up

I've said it b4 and I'll say it again. The best disconnect for our rigs is to flip the bolt upside down so that it can be removed from the bottom instead of the top, easy as that. And you do gain a little, in my test with sway bar connected tire at full flex tire was in the air a good inch, without the sway bar it was on the ground, same hill same postion. Check off-road rangers they have a good thread going on limiting factor of front suspension.

Well, that all depends on what you want. IFS doesnt suck in all aspects, just flex when compared to a SFA.
