I was sitting above the camera man at Backdoor, I can ALMOST see myself in your pic... I was there with that orange rig at the bottom.

Very cool build, I just burned through all of it.
I thought for sure the front end was coming off of your H3 when there were multiple cars winching on it.

At this point my leafs I put in without a add a leaf is just too soft. Ride height is good/the same because the u bolt eliminator perches are taller. Curious if I could pull the 2nd leaf and add a cut down main leaf from my spare leaf packs, keep similar ride height but add rate. My fear is adding a cut down main leaf or add a leaf will add too much height

Bump!

After koh my new fox 2.0s definitely felt faded after 1 trip 100 miles of desert prerunning probably wasnít good for my heavy rig and a 2.0 so Iím at a crossroads.

Iím a coilover hater because 90% of the people donít need them and think they need them (damn Instagram...Ējust do tons and COísĒ) but packaging is so nice! My coil buckets have bent a little bit with the air bump inside the coil after one trip. I canít fit them anywhere else, so if I go with coilovers packaging is easier, I can get a longer track bar in there as well but going 2.5s would solve the desert prerunning issue and destroying my 2.0s

Whatís pirate think?

I say coilovers. I was torn between coilovers and the ORI struts but the cost and the weight limitations of the struts are what turned me away from them since I'm working on a full body and very heavy build.

packaging and tune ability are the major benefits over a coil and a shock. however, I think you could get good results from a larger body shock even if you keep your coils. look at all the diesel trucks running thuren fabrication and Carli tuned systems. It really boils down to how much work your willing to do and how much money your willing to spend.

I think it would be fine as long as the truck is 2700ish pounds on the front axle, of if more the piggyback strut is made for heavier vehicles as far as I can tell. But I could be wrong. Of course I don't know the weight of the truck currently
