Pretty sure Fox specs 200psi, that's what I charge mine to anyway.

I had them charged by a local company here in the valley. I have heard that Wayne does amazing work though. At 200psi I feel like they ride great at higher speeds, but a low speeds they clunk around a lot. I am pretty sure that is because of the bar pin eliminators. Going to have to think of some way to stop clunking.

I don't run bar pin eliminators I've always had issues with em. Save up some $$ and send em to Wayne. Be the best 100 bucks you've spent on shocks ever.

Are you running shocks with spherical bearings with bar pin eliminators? Am I understanding that correctly? The Fox shocks like above are designed to be clamped between two tabs with a bolt and nut. Bar pin eliminators are used on shocks with poly/rubber bushings that originally had a bar pin.

My current setup is factory mounted. Bar pin and rubber and then stock stem tops... My shock will be available soon. $$

Yeah they have the spherical bushing on the bottom mount. I am using the ORW bushing and the JKS adapter for the top and a custom made bar pin eliminator for the bottom. I am going to have to redesign the bottom mount. I would like to cut off the stock mount and weld in some new shock mounts. But to not have a welder.

Tj I have been following your build for awhile and enjoy watching the work you do. I have always wanted to run the Mojave road, just don't think my Jeep is setup well enough yet. Keep up the great work on the Jeep and all the other trucks you work on.
