    Check out these pictures, of my 1st Gen on Lower Woodpecker in AZ. Keep in mind, this is a 1st Gen and I have a lot of additional work to do on my shock towers and my inner fenders.

    Let me tell you, the flex Springer Suspension provides is hard to believe. I never would get this type of flex with anything aftermarket.

    I'm happy, and that's all that matters. Let's see, that's twice up Upper Woodpecker, twice up Lower Woodpecker, and 1/3 of the way up Highway to Hell. Yes Marvin and I cruzed up Highway to Hell and walked the whole trail with a tape measure, and guess what, with the exception of 1 major obstical, I't looks doable with a full size as long as you don't mind some body damage. We are going to take a stab, but have not decided when yet.

    Anyway, check out the pic's.

    Shane,

    No more axle wrap than I normally get, I am not even running the track bar in the rear as of yet, and I have not had any trobule as of yet.

    Dude, we have to get together and run a trail. I think my son and I have been out at least 3 times in the last 4 weekends.

    The trails in Florence Junction are awesome.
