Same man. Are you gonna make it out to the Clean Dezert event?

Yeah it was ridiculous. You could tell somebody was going to be hurting before they hit the ground. He caught more air off the rebound on that jump than I did all weekend. They kind of shut it down after that. Not completely, but there wasn't as much running around after that
Hope so. Plan would be to go out even if I don't have a truck. Maybe just take out the mini quad haha

Lol I actually bought one after seeing yours. I was really looking for something I could hide though, that just had Bluetooth.
if your just using a phone/ipod etc. to control it, then you just need an amp. a volume potentiometer and a bluetooth to RCA adapter (maybe some RCA "Y" cabbies depending on amp) oh and a power switch. also the potentiometer might not be needed if you want to adjust volume with the source device.

This would have worked perfect. I should have posted something in here asking for help

I got around to changing up my spring rates. After doing the alignment I found I had 1” of toe in and that was how my truck was at the ride height I wanted. After fixing the toe issue I had to put 2 1/2” of preload in the front to get the same desired ride height.

Went from 350/350 to 350/500, one inch of preload, and set the crossovers to catch at the last inch of shock travel. Hopefully this will keep me from bottoming hard, without having to open up the coilovers.

The rear I also changed up from 350/450 to 450/450 equal length springs and ran the crossovers out of the way and not use them.

I also finally got my hands on a Baja Designs actuator from PSDirtracer that I’m itching to install soon

now you know for next time. I had that setup in my old Toyota pickup, worked great. I stepped it up in my explorer though, had a parrot system to interface the audio devices to the amp. gave me bluetooth, aux, am/fm, phone, etc. just had a little display and a control knob to mount. the display was removable too so with it taken off you couldn't see any part of the system.
