    Kind of funny you mentioned those super duty shocks, I use a 0-3 inch lift pro crap mx6 adjustable on Ethel and on my blazer when it was leaf sprung, crappy part was the sets of springs ride rough so it's hard to compare.

    Many miles driven between personal and shop use.

    Lots of parts are staged and ready, and the weekend is fast approaching. ORD-spec Bilstein 7100s are here, there are a few maintenance items, and it's time for some leaf spring "tuning" in advance of a coming trip to Katemcy Rocks.

    One of my very favorite places to wheel in Texas. Granite, big blue sky, and spring wildflowers.

    We're going the weekend of 4/22. I'm the only full size in a crew of Jeeps. Want to change that?

    If you leave Wyoming now, you'll just make it. I'll have a cold glass of iced tea waiting for you.
