How do you like the fox shock/ thuren combo? I'm torn on the overlands vs fox

Thanks man. I the fox/ Thuren combo feels good especially with the long arms.

Sir, beautiful build. Looking really good. BTW:. Not sure if those are 37x 12.5 or 13.5 and what your offset is. What I can tell you as a word of caution, I'm running 37 x 13.5 Toyos on 17x9 +20 mm offset rims, that hit pretty significantly on the front lower of the REAR wheel wells. My first extreme test run after I upgraded tires and rims was in June at Rausch Creek. This occured mainly on uphill where there is a lot of weight and torque load on the rear axle, on very twisty, undulating terrain. The axle swings forward when stuffed causing contact with the fender. I really didn't experience this on the downhill or level trails. Both of my flares had to be removed the rest of the way and one inner fender well removed itself. The sheet metal on the fender was pulled out and cutting my tires' treadblocksImage. I'm picking up my truck today from a specialist and will add before and after on my build. I had the axle moved back with stock springs packs and they repaired my fenders. I saw earlier in your build discussing Deavers which would have similar effect if they offset the mounting pins, but you may want to check my solution since you have some mad welding skills. I will try to get the deets and pics up tonight. I have RTI scores too. ImageImage

Thanks for the info Simon. I had some contact at full lock in the front to the pinch weld at the cab. The long arm kit moved the axle forward. As for the rear I’ve had it flexed in all sorts of ways with no problem. The tires are 37” X 12.5” wide and wheels are 17” X 9.5” with a -32 offset leaving a 4” backspace.

Check my build. Added some pics. I was fine on some pretty severe stuff up until I had a long up hill run on super undulated trails. These trails had one side raised by 3 ft from level while simultaneously the other side was drooped 3 ft from level. This with the front doing the opposite. Pretty extreme. Looked like some extreme Aussie tracks. Lots of people were rubbing even with 35s. Much more rubbing with 37s.
