I'm running without shocks right now and I want to have them installed cause it is a little too bouncy for me and i hate riding low and bottoming out on bumpy roads. I also hate having to roll with the front end all the way up, it just looks goofy. i got bags to ride low not the other way around.
Shocks . . . I highly recommend them. :thumbup:

What I also recommend is getting song lyrics corrected here's the proper end to those lyrics you got in your sig Derrick70

"I got more rhymes than the bible's got psalms" :D

Definately relocate your shocks. It's too damn bouncy (as everyone else said). I tried doin some kinda hard corners with it and it felt like I was gonna flip or somethin...

The main reason people choose not to run shocks is because you loose about half of your turning radius with them. When I had them on my truck I had trouble parking in a parking lot because I couldnt make the turn into the parking spot. Thats the reason I took them off.

Actually, I think its because they are LAZY, and rationalize it by making up excuses. And you don't lose 'half' your turning radius, not even a 1/4 turn. It kinda sucks, but its worth it.

I guess its just a matter of opinon, but I lost about half of my turning radius with the reloactors installd properly and I had trouble even getting into a parking spot. I still have the relocators on my truck and the shocks are in my garage. That rues out me trying to make excuses, I tried shocks and didnt like them, so I got rid of them

His new "5 link" bolt on kit is similar to the roadgrater in some aspects, but overall not really. It does look like a great kit tho. He does now sell the actual ART roadgrater on his site tho, maybe that's what you meant?
