Hi Andrew,

In Racing....Ford was in it to Win....Cost was secondary... I understand your position of too rich... I am interested in your foam bumpstop.... intriguing!

Best.

For some reason I thought it was a foam composite but it’s a Microcellular polyurethane. Anyways still not cheap but more affordable then hydraulic to all four corners. Here’s the link to the speedbumps.

ha ha really?? If your off roading you will hit them all the time. Now if your driving 10mph you won’t utilize them at all. But if you spend 1500 on a suspension system I’m assuming you want to off-road and not mall crawl. Why is this news to everyone ha ha?

I thought they did but no they just come off if you put enough pressure on one side.

Finally got the truck in some dirt today to test out the suspension. The Icon suspension did great but nothing that I was super impressed with comparing to higher end systems. I also really dislike the front bumper as it’s doesn’t have enough clearance built into it to actually climb anything. The Tacoma has it beat in this category. Here are a few pics from some scratches trying to do minor rock climbing. Theres more on the otherside. I guess a new bumper will be in order at some point.

I was casually looking for a bumper and found this. For the price I may have to purchase it.

The trails finally opened up after a long winter and got to test out the truck in some tight rocky trails. Nothing super hard but a good challenge. Overall I was super impressed with the truck. It did everything I asked it to with no problems. The only complaint I have so far is the stock bumper has low approach angle and and the sport wheels stick out way too far. I have deep scratches and chunks missing from all four wheels. The Icon suspension was great and the sliders did there job! Here are a few pics! I’ll take some of the rims tomorrow.
