So does that mean you have to have your coilover revalved when you get your bypasses on? Also I like the coilover protector but I heard they can fill up with mud and water and destroy your coilover. How does it mount on the coilover? Think it's weatherproof? Last question lol, what am I looking at where your lca's mount too? Not sure what all the cutting was for exactly.

Coilovers will be revalved - yes.

Unknown about the 'socks'. I drive it on the street as well so it should help keep the salt out.

Dave is reinforcing the LCA mounting pockets. We've seen several bent from contact at speed.

No, its a good thing I don't. The tires I ran at HITH are 315/70/17s but they are taller then the BFGs.... they did a number on my inner fenders during the night run. Had to show them how to air it out The fender cracked from my mega huck last year when I was racing.

You were at Havoc?!? Did we meet? That's the problem with screen names... I never know who I'm talking to.

I'm the short guy with the shaved head and the broken truck, lol.
