Tank got some new bouncy bouncies...

I have been getting more aggressive in my driving style daily,...now that my warranty is gone.

So before I break something,..just to be safe,..I've been upgrading certain parts....

I have been offroading my truck more and more,...and normally I do mud,..but in the past I've done rocks, trails(if I fit), car crawling,..etc

I've disconnect my sway bars a few times,..and noticed that I'm extremely close to the max potential of my DR 4.5" lift shocks.

So...I stepped up to the DR/ICON 7" front shocks,...which are technically only 1 1/2" longer.....these should work perfectly,...for both extension and compression.






BTW- If anyone needs (3) DR shocks for a 4.5" lift......make me an offer.

They look good. I just order 5100 series bilstiens for 4inch lift for mine cause shocks for a 2in lift were maxed out. I wanted a little downward travel

You both are partially correct,...they were made in the same factory,...but with TOTALLY different build specs...they were valved differently,..they were made of different materials,..and in this case,...completely different quality in coatings..
