That way you can try and colapse the shocks by hand before buying them. If they colapse do not buy them.
ok thanx! im still looking. nothing looks like its in good condition on craigslist.

I think I have some SAR training that might interfere with this trip. Looks like I might have to sit this one out.

yea i have done a lot of wheeling but nothing grand you know just the normal mud and some obstacles like some hill climbs and off camber spots but i have never really done anything on rocks im super excited though and this will be the first time i can finally air down.

I think im going to try to borrow a friends tire he is comming with me and i think im going to take one of his tires off his truck and put it on my bumper for a spare. He has the same bolt on pattern same rim except black and the same exact tire lol

but yea its pretty sad when i have to borrow a full size spare and im only running 31s haha but when i move up to 33s im going to buy 5 and i will move up as soon as i have the gearing and money

I invite everyone to come. It is a trail maintenance run but there will be fun wheeling on a moderate trail. It's usually an easy trail but with snow, it gets a little tougher.
That is all....carry on....

Back to the normal BS.

Sounds like fun to me I think I'll be there. Are you going Metal?
