Quick trip to Uhwarrie for a photo/video shoot with Nitto tire. Also the maiden voyage for RV1, what a beast! Drives so nice and the 7.3 does;t breaks sweat. More pics/video soon.

What rear shock valving are you guys running ? I currently have 10" Bilsteins valved at 255/70 and am planning on switching them out.

That's what I would run on the rear but springs are important too. If you're under sprung the shocks will get over worked.

Thanks Ujoint. I had custom Deaver springs built but am not sure of the spring rate. I will probably visit King Shock and get there input on some custom valving

Couldn't wait any longer to mount up the new wheels/tires on my t-bird! Hopefully we'll be able to get it in the shop for the new suspension soon, need some free time! It looks great for now but will look even better once I can slam it! The wheels are from Detroit Steel, tires are from Diamond back classics.

Chinook on the ground! Transmission is back in, waiting for shafts now. Few other goodies to finish on the one, hope to have it all wrapped up late next week.



TON of work to get this bumper done! We had to fab new frame horns & a hitch, we also made s custom skin to match the body and made a wider molle panel for the pass side swing. Should be started on the 4x4 swap soon!
