    that camo actually has potential. never thought of painting like that(green first and use the shrubs as the stencil then paint darker color) pretty rad.

    I would have left them longer and moved them farther into the engine bay but that is just me. If you are not flexin a lot and mainly running mud it should be fine:D .

    they have 12.5" of travel, and I set them to have 6" of rod showing, so it has a very slight bias toward droop over compression...

    Ordered them from the Ford Dealership in Thomaston. Any ford Stealership can order them, I'll get you the part number if you want.
