Good age. haha

What i suggest on shock tuning is get a vise on your trailer and stuff to change valving when out in the desert. When you "ride" as you call it although most would call it drive. Tear apart the shocks and change something and go see how it does. You will see what changing shims does for the ride and adjust from there. Thinner shims = softer compression and faster rebound. Thicker = opposite. Tear into it and keep that golf cart rubber side down and have some fun.
