fox 2.0 shocks

I ordered my for 2.0 shocks in January for my truck. Anyone know how they ride, and are they going to ride better than my fx4 Rancho. I should be getting them next week they had to build them for my truck. Thanks

Ive heard great things about the Fox shocks, and as far as the Crapo FX4 shocks, anything is better than those. PERIOD.

You may need to revalve the shocks as they come with a standard valving. You may want to contact the company your buying them from to get them properly valved for the best ride possible. It may cost extra but IMO it would be worth it.

Why would I need to get them revalved when I ordered them to the spec of my truck?

Then you should be good.

I did not know that Fox was doing specific valving for Super Dutys. I know when I purchased my Fox emulsion shocks for my crawler, the Sway-A-Ways for my pre runner and the Kings for my sand rail. I had to weigh the vehicles front and rear ends, then they valved it accordingly. Just because they fit doesn't mean they are properly valved for your truck. Look there are a few different engine packages, body sizes, wheelbases and all of them weigh differently which would be a different valving. I'm not trying to put a downer on your shocks, just informing you.

Yeah I ordered them direct and they asked me all of those questions. That's why they had to build them and it is taking a month and half to get them.

They ran 625.00 for the application I ordered. I had them do it to complete spec for my lift and tire size and truck model. I also told them I dont off road extreme, but do go offroad to our ranch. I wanted an all around street and offroad valving. Mine do not have the resevoirs, I did not need them. The waiting sucks, im ready to take off the crap fx4 shocks and mount these. I ordered them around the beginning of last month. Should be here next week or the folliwing week.

**** for $625 I hope they ride better than your Ranchos...otherwise swapping 1 year old shocks for the same crappy ride would suck!

Let us know how it turns out, I used to work at Warn when we did Fox Racing coil over lifts for Jeeps...Fox has great products & quality.

I hate the ride of my Ranchos but I'm not willing to spend the money to correct the problem yet...too busy building the stable of MX bikes for the family.
