- HISTORY, STORY, EXPERIENCE, COMMENTS
This is my first truck ever. Growing up near the Sierra-Nevadas, I had been wanting something with 4-wheel drive capability, and now I finally have it! It is the first vehicle that I've owned and began modding since starting my big boy job working on teeth, so I'm pimping this thing out (within reasonable limits).
My build is a combination of bling, comfort, and capability. It's got to look good. It's got to be easy to move around as my daily driver. It's got to be badass enough to take me to badass places when nature beckons. Any modifications are being made under the premise that if anything is going to be done, its going to be done the right way.
I'm VERY pleased with the Radflo suspension. The spring rates on the Eibach springs seem higher, and even on the softest compression setting the ride seems more firm than the stock FX4 suspension. Rebound damping is greatly improved, with no more boat-like wavy up and down motion during everyday driving. Remote reservoir placement has been repositioned since my initial pictures.
Wet and dry traction/handling with the Contis is phenominal, and my driving is spirited. Road noise is very low.
UPDATE (12/7/19): Took "The Beast" to the beach last weekend. Felt like I was floating on clouds, even at 60 mph. Love love love my Radflo's and Continentals!!
