The buggy is still buried in the back of Bj's barn. In The next couple weeks I am going to go get it out of there and get it home. All I got is the pics from his build thread. I am getting the tj stripped down right now and put in the other barn since I am going to sell the majority of it off. Part of the body is all i am using.

Dale at ironman offroad is an actual dealer for PAC too. Not sure if mike can do orders for regular people or not so there's another option.

I can get you Shocks, Springs, Swaybars, etc from PAC. If you go 2.5" CO (3" springs) i have springs you can try so we can do a better job of dialing it in the first time.

The only thing I dislike about the buggy is the fact that I didn't build it. With that said, Bj at rocksolid performance does top notch work. I keep looking and I still haven't found anything I don't like. There are a few things I will change but that is just because I want a different setup, not a lack of quality.

Liv2mx also told me about Profender. I bought 2 and I will be getting 2 more for the front in a few weeks. As a company they were very helpful when it came to helping me set Spring lengths and rates. I told him how I wanted it to ride and that's exactly what I got.
As for the shocks them selves. I like the fact that it is a 5/8 bolt that holds them to your rig, they come with a small rubber bump installed, they have built in miss alinement spacers ( not just home ends) an they also came with all the mounting hardware for the remote resi
I'm not 100% sure but I don't think you get this with any of the other shocks.

I have taken my truck out about 20 times so far and I love them. They work properly and the valving is smooth. I've had no issues. Just my .02

Do you still have your shocks mounted all retarded? I am going to be getting my shocks through alumcj. After talking to him I think I will be very happy with them. After the research I did about the profenders I wasn't very impressed. I will spend a few extra bucks and get something I won't regret in the future.
