Ran the little mud hole today + Some Shock Advice

We've gotten a little rain here in the desert and there is a spot that usually catches a lot of run off. It's pretty sloppy stuff after it soaks. Got stuck once (4-low, m/ts, lockers) but was able to finesse it back out the way i went in.








My shock advice is do not let your shock stop the Jeep. Rocks and shocks don't get along very well! Ended up picking up some Pro Comp shocks locally for $80, atleast someone stocked a shock that'd fit. Checker wanted $80ea for some cheesy monroe replacement shock! blah

The 2.5" spacer kit does not come with one, however I spent the $30 for their Rear relocation bracket. Also extended the brake lines myself, and am using $30 rubicon express end sway endlinks, and moved my rears up front. So for about $200 I got the 2.5" spacers, end links, rear track bracket, extended brake lines, and shock extensions. Another $100 for the wheel spacers.

Are you sure you bent the shock on a rock? The only reason I am asking is that I have seen a few people bend their passenger side shock just like that with a rear drop bracket.

Positive. I hit a rock backing up, next bump was solid out of the back end. Marks on the tube show it as well.
