Yep, I think it happened in the Maze when I was doing warp speed to keep up with Wes and the Dans..

I am headed to Robbie's in a few minutes, we are installing Icon coilovers in the front and OME 80 series shocks in the back..also medium OME springs in the back.

For what I put that Pro Comp system through in the last 2 years, I am 100% satisfied with what I got out of it for what I paid.

One of the reasons I like to keep my speed down. Things will break. Sorry to see that, did you notice any difference in driving?

Breaks that you can drive home on are the best kind. It could have been much worse.

So curiousity had me guessing when this happened.

I remember hitting one of the dry water crossings pretty hard and getting out of the vehicle to see if all was good..

Guess my mechanical eye was not so trained....

It happened on the way in between the Green River's Starbucks and the Hans Flat ranger station..Basically, I ran the entire Maze at warp speed with a broken shock..Which also blew out the front tie rod in the same area (found that out as I was getting an alignment, after the new install)

Here is the pic I used to find out, I blew it up on my laptop but not sure how to do that and save a larger copy..

It stayed in place nicely. My earliest photos of your truck are the same stretch of road and the shock is busted there too.
