FOX 2.5 remote resi's installed up front.

So I got them installed yesterday and I love them, I was so worried that the ride would be harsh and well, NOPE! It's a great ride, I liked the ride before but now I really like it. It was an expensive purchase but well worth the money. I'll be giving them a go on trails on Monday to really get a feel for them. Here are some pics.
I've not yet installed the rear shocks yet but monday they will be going on.
Prior to getting these put on I had a 2.5" leveling spacer in the front and 1" block in the rear, my concerns were having to crank them down (to bring front end up) to get a level ride (FOX states 0-3" lift, assumed they came in the box at 0"), but that was not the case, right out of the box they make the truck level. My alignment is fine (slight pull to the right, hardly noticable). The angle on the UCA seems fine also. Although I may get new UCA's next month.

I put this up because it seems not many people are running these FOX coilovers.

Orion- go get those resi's filled up the 200psi before you do anything crazy with em. A lot of instances where the come with 60-150 psi not the necessary 200.

I tell you this because I now have to get mine rebuilt bc I didn't realize this prior to "beating" on em!

Orion: The third pic, was this taken with weight on the truck and the springs set were they are now, with the front level? Trying to get an idea how much adjustment there is with this setup. thanks! The truck looks great, and I'll bet the ride is even better
