    Haven't seen much about it and didn't know they were out until today. Should be a good start considering who they sponsor.

    I think they're probably another brand in disguise. Bilstein has a patent on the high pressure monotube cylinder from what I understand.

    either that or they've cut come kind of deal with skyjacker to get royalties.

    Somehow I can't see skyjaker manufacturing shocks though.

    Are those rebuildable or not? I'm guessing not, being gas charged and all...

    Any idea on approx pricing?

    Doubtful. LeDuc has been sponsored by them for the last few years, so the R&D that has gone into them will be top notch. Also, I'm sure that Skyjacker has seen that the geriatric crawling crowd has swarmed towards the desert shocks like Kings and Sway Aways cause there was very little choice for their needs. Now Skyjacker has something to throw at them. Hell, they even got some snailcrawling world championship or something with their name on it, don't they? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I do not see any weld bead on the bottom, so I am guessing rebuildable
    any shock is rebuildable to a point

    what I find odd is the 'position sensitive' feature with no external passages.
    how is that done? grooved body?
    I am also betting it is a bilstien or other rebox
