All you guys bashing US roads should come to Poland one day and see how roads look here. Sure, the highways and main roads are nice, but just go to the countryside and you'll see what a "hole" means

a blind man with a hammer and a chisel and some TNT would have done a better job.

If the tire was a square, that would be perfect. I'm kidding, I bet it will look sweet once you are done.

Just a suggestion, but when your all done with it, you can put protekto-trim on the top part of the fender where you trimmed. It makes it look a lot cleaner.

This is the size to get..... Link--> http://www.google.com/product_url?q=...hl=en&sa=title

A sample pic of protekto-trim on a trimmed fender.....

The second one is a bit more serious, but still I can't see many situations when you can bend it.

Froggo27, great rig, congratulations!

But this red color on the cover... hmmm... might be useful only if you loose your axle on the trail at dark night
This is a bit of misinformation, because all though they only have one tube, they are still pressurized. So depending on the level of compression, their valving is changed.

Valving, when listed for shocks, are listed at what the manufacturer expected them to be length wise at ride height. This is usually right in the center of their travel.
