I believe the stick is similar to the golden ticket from willy wonka to be honest...

I thought the stick was used to slice zombies while driving up the trail.

No, that's what the machete mounted in the cab with small access port holes is for.

Andy, mental note for your future build... If you can, run Sway-a-way 12" shocks or maybe 14" shocks if you wanna get really crazy up front! Stay away from Kings and probably Fox's too. Sway-a-way shocks will fit much easier! Performance wise, they all work the same...

Why avoid the Kings and Fox? Kings were my first choice but realistically I was going to run FOA or Race Runner.

Does anyone frequent the junkyards around town? I need a leather ZJ or WJ driver's seat for my TJ but I've had no luck so far. I can only go on the weekend and by then all the good ones are gone. If you go regularly I can give you my contact info.

I've got to find one, the cloth seats are not working for me as a daily driver. The cloth seats are getting a funky smell that comes off on my cloths. Not working real well at the office.....

Length reasons, the way the top caps are designed, the SAW are shorter and space issues I'm running into, the difference would be night and day.

Curious, what brands have you had first hand experience with and how many have you had apart to see the insides of? Not questioning you but curious cause I personally have owned, rebuilt, revalved, and used Bilstein 9100 and 7100, SAW 2.5 racerunners, King 2.5 Race series and prerunner series, King 3.0 prerunners series and radflo 2.5's. Along with those I've owned Radflo, Bilstein, FOA, and King bumpstops. Out of ALL of those, I've NEVER had any leak EVER with only exception being one bilstein bump. I do have FOA bumps right now though and will never own another pair of those at least.

BTW, when I say "owned" I'm tossing Jason's truck into the mix since I think at this point it's been in my possession about as long as it's been in his physically and by the time he gets home it will have been in my possession longer then his for sure! LOL

I don't have any experience with Fox though.

Internal wise, they all are a bit different but honestly, I could put any brand on anything in my driveway and make them all work equally as good without much effort. Assuming they all bolted into place... The length differences would make that real world statement the hardest part to prove.

My toyota, I've had SAW shocks on it for 7+ years, no leaks, no issues. My old exploder, bilstein all around, never a leak, never an issue, including the time I drug the rear shocks for a bit when the top mounts ripped out of the truck on the rear. Kings, well, honestly, I'm relatively new to them but so far, they seem the same as everything else and they obviously have the reputation they do.

I know fox has a VERY VERY VERY good reputation but I can't speak 1st hand on them. I do know their valving lingo is different then all the rest though. When people talk about what shim stacks they're running, I don't really know what they're referring to.



On top of that, IMO unless you're really running at a competitive level, you can take ANY brand of shock and make it work more then good enough for what 99.9% of the people out there think they want. Are there differences? Technically, sure... In the real world building a truck to go out on the weekends and have fun, do they matter? IMO, nope, not one bit...

Guess I'll be taking a look at the SAW or Sway-A-Way then. I have to admit that I am leary of Sway-A-Way. I know some swear by them but every set I have ever seen have been leaking.

Guess you've never seen mine then?


The smoothies on the rear of my truck have been there for 7+ years and the coilovers for 2+ years now and those were on the rear of jason's truck previously for 4 years as well. One of the resi lines seeps a tiny bit but nothing other then that and I've never even messed with it. Only issue I've heard of SAW is the bodies rusting but here in Nevada... What's rust?


BTW, when I say seeps, the king resi's on the front of the expo seep WAY worse then my SAW's do.
