Have you ever put up with something for years...

and then one day it finally hits you to do something about it?

I've hated my RE twin tube shocks since day one, almost 6 years, and have no idea why I put up with it. I guess because it's not my DD driver, I put only about 3k miles a year on it, but still the shocks suck, super stiff.

I'm probably going to swap that junk for some Zone hydro's, or possibly Skyjacker hydro's.

Funny you should bring this up. I put up with my Procomp super stiff shocks for 145k miles. Rolling on Zone Hydro's now and they are much better.

I FINALLY replaced the gas struts on my hard top hatch - bent over and let the hatch rest on my head for at least a year - it bonked me a couple times and that got me ordering.....


You only get so many miles....enjoy em

If you want to argue...go talk to yourself.

He's never bothered me a bit, but you have been here just 5 months, yet it seems like years. That's telling, at least from your perspective.

I always found him pretty cool myself...

Thank you and let the forum speak for its self (as you have). I appreciate your comment.

From time to time people come to this forum to find help with their Jeep and the projects they're trying to accomplish.

Some people come here to explore what others already have knowledge of.

Some just don't get it, you know what I mean?

And bobbie j yates will soon post some drivel in this thread...
