I've got a set of stock shocks with 40k on em. They are just chilling on the side of my house. You will just need to swap over the coils and top plates from yours. Spring compressor is $30 at autozone and only takes maybe 10 min per strut to swap. They are free to you. They aren't pretty and have been sitting for a little while. But like I said free.yea just have to take it easy the search is on for a good used strut tell i get money saved up and get some real parts
Agreed! !!! U want jump u have to go long travel n b willing to spend $3k for the front n a little less for the front
Raptor's shocks will be fine. The Raptor frame however will bend.And that's not even the TRD shock. I don't think any truck are made for crazy off road and jumping pot holes except the raptor. If you want to play rough, get the aftermarket parts that's specifically design for that purpose.
ehh no never seen them in the kit i got ?3/2 leveling kit... did you forget to install the bump stop spacers? Bump stop spacers will prevent the shocks from bottoming out and failing like yours did.
Having the shocks fail is cheaper and easier to replace than something else breaking.

you are setting yourself up for some major disappointment at your idea of reasonable vs. oem reality.I expect my truck from the factory to be able to travel down rough gravel roads over and over again at reasonable speeds without any damage. Isn't this what trucks are made for???
I wouldn't expect my truck to be capable of jumping or to withstand excessive off-road abuse (ie. rock crawling, mud bogging, etc.)...
Running a smaller wheel is good for rough roads, more tire to absorb impacts. I run the stock 20" wheels with winter tires in the winter when I don't spend much time on gravel roads. In the summer I switch to 18" wheels with AT tires for when I spend time going camping, etc. on the gravel roads.
It all depends on the gravel roads he is speaking of and the speed. If its a smooth road graveled with 57's I see no problem at all. If its a logging road graveled with shot rock and 4" rock you can't try to run it @ 40 mph. I've ran lots of coal haul roads and logging roads and never had a problem. But I also realize you cannot fly on that type of road and adjust accordingly.you are setting yourself up for some major disappointment at your idea of reasonable vs. oem reality.
