    Tundra Fox 2.0 vs Bilstein 6112 (now including Ironman PFC and Falcon shocks)

    Yeah Andrew has always hated Ironman. If you look back at his old stuff you will see it... Spoiler alert, I used to work for metal-tech... And I worked for them when Andrew used the shop GX. He didn't air down even though he said he did. 45psi in the tires with any suspension will do that. He...

    As far as salt/rust goes, I like in the pacific northwest and regularly spend time at the ocean and beach. And while we don't salt the roads here we use a calcium chloride which is pretty bad in its own right. In the past few years I have really seen the rust taking off on vehicles that have not...

    Tundra Fox 2.0 vs Bilstein 6112 (now including Ironman PFC and Falcon shocks)

    I wouldn't say that at all. They were night and day different and better than the Bilsteins I had on the truck. The ride was so much smoother and more controlled. I simply said the Icons did a better job thank the FCPs, like took things to the next level. The FCPs have a very nice ride and I...

    Not exactly. They are fine or comfortable in any position of travel. When I say they are not a pressurized shock I mean that they do not want to atuyomay extend to maximum travel while free of load or resistance. The foam cell pro shocks provide equal resistance on both compression and rebound...

    Tundra Fox 2.0 vs Bilstein 6112 (now including Ironman PFC and Falcon shocks)

    Honestly it wasn't a night and day difference. When I made the switch I was commuting over 100 miles a day so I spent a fair amount of time in the truck. It was more or less little things like cracks in the road surface, or irregularities in the road (tree roots causing bumps, patches from...

    The Ironman foam cell pro would be the best bet by far if you wanted something with rubber bushings. I have personally run them and beat on them ie jump the truck over railroad tracks and at the sand dunes, while the ride is not as cushy as say Icon's or King's, the steel construction is much...

    The the larger truck I would get the larger shock... I'm not a fan of either of those companies for their customer service and or lack thereof, but I would always get the bigger shock to deal.with the greater weight

    Vehicle Use when Volunteer

    We are a 503c as well. We did this to separate our equipment and resources from being soaked up by the sheriff's department and or it's partnered agencies (they are in a regional taskforce that shares equipment and specialty equipment between several departments and agencies between them.) So...

    Vehicle Use when Volunteer

    It's strange that your states and or agencies don't cover you. Here in Wa state you are covered under the agency insurance whine you are assigned to and or your own dept under training. We have had lost and or damaged gear and equipment replaced at no out of pocket cost to the...
