I'm not in the habit of carrying spare shocks nor do I wish to start, not when a skidplate at the price of a shock can preclude the need to carry spares. Install once, no spares needed, more space for toys and tools.
Relocating shocks and trimming LCA mounts is not in my book either as I would like to retain as much of the stock suspension configuration as possible. Since I don't have the skills to do all the work, I'd have to pay someone hundreds of dollars to do that custom work and after all that, I just compromised the suspension design. No thanks.
I suppose there is a market for such silly products.
Mine have some rock rash on them from the last time I went through some rock strewn trails. Intuitively, I would say those rock rashes are a good thing, since they are on the skid. I feel better knowing that the skids are taking a beating instead of the factory mounts even if it may only be cosmetic damage. For the price of a shock, it is my preferred method.
