I went with RS9000 so i could dial it in for hwy or trail. I think I am set at 7 for the road and if I soften them all the way it gets a little scary on the road. Just my .2
I was leaning towards a bilstien shock but the adjustable ranchos are nice, I have a couple extra sway bars laying around that I could use if necessary.

This is a TDK frame:
I might build that into my frame, mine will also be a 2x4 boxed frame all through out and saving money is always a plus
Thanks for the suggestions all are still welcomed and probably needed. I will be placing a few orders tonight (The leafs, perches and maybe tires). Has anyone ever ordered from onlinetires.com? I researched them and found mixed reviews just wondering?
