Sorry for asking questions... Don't you own a shop? No point in swinging by the speedway if you're not even interested in talking online. Have a good one... joking or not, I definitely won't be referring your way at this point now.

My concern was nothing more than steering this thread away from the OP's request for pictures of local Jeeps, not about your questions. But, it sounds like your mind is made up. You have a good one too.

I don't think we have ever had a thread that has stayed on topic for very long. Being that this thread was created more than a year ago, I think it is a safe bet to assume that it going off topic for a bit wouldn't upset the Op.

I've always been intrigued with those shocks and they look like a better way to go then say Fox's IBP style. They use that needle pin similar to what's going on in the rear shock on dirt bikes and I always wondered why the truck guys hadn't gone that direction...

And yeah, like I figured, badass ride!
If you don't want to answer, that is all fine and good but I would also like to know and probably Garza too.

I really need to make it out there again, Desert Splash was a great time with a lot of good folks and trails.

I didn't even notice how old the thread was

Have you ran a standard c/o before and if so, I'm assuming it's night and day difference?

Yes, I have a little experience with coil-overs. I couldn’t say that it’s a night and day difference, but compression is far better/smoother in the IBP. As I’m sure you are aware, terrain, vehicle weight, and shock stroke are all factors that determine handling characteristics. My Jeep weighed in at just over 5k in race trim, and with a class limitation of a 14” stroke shock, compromises had to be made. I chose to use a 12" shock to avoid driveline bind issues with the 1350 u-joints. We gave up speed in the extremely rough terrain, but gained speed in moderate terrain and rock sections. Budget is always a concern, and these work very well given their price point. Coil carriers and external bypasses would certainly work better in this class, but this Jeep is still my trail rig. I wanted to be competitive, properly market our advertisers products, but still have a trail Jeep after the race.

Is tuning a pain or pretty easy?

They tune like any other shock, but we felt we had what we needed right out of the box from King and chose not to further tune them. (more info on that is in the article referenced below)

Any issue with excessive fade on them?

The terrain was so rough in many areas of the desert lap that we kept our speed way down (25 MPH in some areas) to avoid crashing into the bumpstops. In the areas that we did go fast, I didn't notice any fade issues.

Do they use a fullsize 2.5" piston or are they sleeved down to something smaller?

Looking at the photo in the link below, I assume it is a 2.5” piston.

And, here is a link that discusses our thought after our first, and only, testing session before the race.

Here is my Jeep. I am a Grad student at UNLV, so I can't quite afford to do much to it at the moment. I have a 2" BDS lift in mind for the near future. She has 230,000 miles so far, and I hope to push that to at least 300,000 miles.

Kudos to a very nice looking CJ/YJ! (Everyone elses' Jeeps are nice, this one just struck a chord with me)

Looks good. I love going doorless too, but I keep them on for your safety. Something about a kids juice cup going through someone's windshield @ 70 mph scares me.


We are meeting tomorrow at the hooters off of Rainbow south around 4ish if you want to meet some locals. They are talking about doing the apex afterwards.
