What's the word on those Fox shocks? Are they something that would compliment a factory Prospector?

I think they swapped out their stock springs so new shocks were required to match the new coil spring rates.

Well the week in Moab was amazing as usual. Ran into Dave out on Gold Bar Rim trail he was showing off his skill with the KTM. Had a brief moment to honk at Ward as we drove by on our way to a trail ride. Sorry we couldn't hook up Ward it would have been nice to get pics of Howie next to your epic overlander, we will have to hook up at Overland Expo. The truck performed as good as I would expect given it was its first time out. We have some tweaks to make and have learned a lot for wheeling with the big fella. Outstanding turn radius and it feels super stable on everything we put it on. The trails we ran were Flat Iron Mesa, Behind the rocks, Gold Bar rim, all of Fins and things (our first trail to feel it out). Howitzer is currently at Nemesis Industries where they will be developing an aluminum expedition rack for both the ram box and non rambox beds. They are very talented fabricators if you have any questions on what you might need for a rack they are great to talk to about it and have extensive offroad knowledge. Here are some Iphone pics of the week we have some good ones coming shortly. As for springs we are going to change all of that around a bit as soon as it is fully finalized I will update that info.

Here are some more going over the bigger portion of the Crack up from the normal crossing. It walked it with ease.

short overhang and massive tires = great clearance

pictures don't really show how massive it is

Cooper, did you have to cut the fender flare or rear quarter panel for that bumper?

Totally had to cut the heck out of everything. Full wrap around bumper that ties into the frame up by the fender flare. It is a ton of extra protection for the rear of the truck. I hit it on a few things and was happy I had it, otherwise I would have smashed the factory bumper and probably dented the bed.

Here are a couple of pics of it before we powdercoated it so you can see it a little easier.
