Default RPG Gettin Some Air
Here is a proof picture of Jarrett's truck on same jump. It was the first time I had been airborne in a truck, yeah, I squealed, just a little, just like a little girl Wake up call! 15 minutes later I was flying in my Raptor with him next to me. Nothing like having a good coach. If you watch the videos, you will see large Power transmission line just to the right of the landing.

I rode with Jarrett in his tuck at the Raptor Run (RIP). The 3.0s and 37s are awesome.

Do you have the standard National springs or the HD springs?

I now have their Stage 4 kit, with Fox 3.0 in front and back. Std duty National springs, and Corey from RPG helped, ok directed, the modification of my stock fenders to be able to accept the 37" tires. I am still running on the lower front "perch" setting and plan to raise to top now that new springs have settled. Getting new UCAs and Tie-Rods in next week

The Fox 3.0s have perches? I thought that was just stock shocks. I know the Fox 3.0s are adjustable, so they are on the lowest setting? Do you have pics of how your truck sits now?

The pictures and videos of my truck were all taken with the Stage 3, front shocks in the mid perch. I am now running the Stage 4 with the Fox 3.0, with the collar in the highest position (equivelent to lower perch). Corey indicated this was optimal to give the front springs a chance to settle in. I now have over 1300 miles on them and was suppose to have more work done last Thursday. Parts didn't make it back from the powder coater, so delayed till next week. New UCA, Tierods, will also be getting tune, Radio and GPS. Will be raising front by lowering shock collars, but you are correct about not having "perch" setting on 3.0s

Leaving in a lttile bit to get some air under current setup, out to Plaster City area. Fun waits for no Mod. well unless it is rear Frame support...

Thanks, Now to find some freaking decent tires, just got back from 5 hours of some pretty hard core stuff. I was checking the shock temp on a whim and here PSSSSS got a pinhole leak in the sidewall of one of the KM2s - they are brand new. Hey Discount Tire - I am not happy - C R A S H

Yes, that is full stock and bottom perch. It was 3 weeks after I bought the truck, still had the dealer temp tags on it.

The Fox 3.0 have a collar that is infinitely adjustable by screwing it up or down. I used the word "perch" as an ill advised abbreviation of current setting. I won't make the mistake again. I was just trying to get across where it was set as an equivalent to stock "perch" settings...
