This is the first time I've had time to read this. And I'm in. And I'll KYB it, too, just to be "that guy."

i say we duct tape cans beer to bumpers to see which shake more.  open them upon arrival. i might be joining the kyb team for this one. not sure i'll have time for bilstein swapping before the trip. and if i blow them out it's even more reason to upgrade.

I have a small GoPro camera I'm willing to position underneath a (my, then another) rig to document suspension action. It's water/dust-proof as-is, so it's the obvious candidate. All I'm able to do is collect raw footage, but it'll be available for anyone who has the capability to offload it and use it as they see fit. I have a collection of mounts with that super-sticky adhesive to place the camera as we see fit. Start/stop with a smarty-phone.

Ok but the cans should be Coke and we should open them in the back of somebody's Land Cruiser so I can relive a childhood memory.  :)

Someone has to sell this advertising image to Bilstein.

Close, but no cigar.  I'm going to be in ABQ 10/11-14 for the Balloon Fiesta.  You guys have a great trip planned.

If anybody wants to go early, you could get up there Saturday and hike Buckskin Gulch on Sunday morning before camp..   not too far away.     I think they started requiring permits but now's the time to arrange that if you're planning on it..

It's as true of a statement as I've ever seen. My Billy's made my weekend 1800 mile trip a very comfortable ride. And the road isn't even where these things shine the most. Once you hit dirt it's smoother than pavement lol

 They're definitely shifted more for offroad, the yellow ones are firmer. I can look up the valving if anyone cares.
