binderbound Anything is better than white bodys. I put 5100 bilstiens on my scout after running KYB's for years,I thought I had died and gone to heaven... NEVER will I run cheap shocks on anything, EVER again.

Bypasses have their place and its only with the best of suspensions. You shouldn't run deavers with ranchos or quad bypasses with stock springs...

Beat95YJ There is some debate about this on the dezert sites. Many people feel a bypass is not needed with 15" of travel or less, coil or leaf. A monotube is always better than a white rocket Offroad.

Wrong. A 2.0 or 2.5 smooth body will make worlds of a difference. Spend the money bypass would cost and pay someone to tune em or buy a no2 tank, shims, oil and learn how they work.

primate60 What are you running them on? Brand? Valving? Length? Tubes? Pics?

JESSE_at_TLT Sure, lots of people. Me included. Bypasses and quality leafsprings (Deaver) can be a pretty awesome combo.

Personally I like the simplicity and stability of leafs as im sure a lot of you do as well.

So IF anyone out there is doing this I would be interested in some tech aswell as some pics.
