I’m much more into the balance between function/durability & weight than I am looks. Granted I don’t want some ridiculous sh/t hanging of my rig but I’ll sacrifice the IG cred for something reputable.
Definitely understand that. I’ve tried to build most of my vehicles with that in mind. Some may ask why I have an Old Man Emu suspension setup and not the Icons with remote reservoirs anymore.
Durability, reliability, and ease of replacement. They just work. They have for a long time. No need to rebuild them. You throw another in. It’s cheaper and faster than rebuilding. Sure they don’t ride like cloud 9 but I have had a remote Resi leak and then fail on a trail. I’d rather know I’m making it than damage something else trying to get out with a blown shock.
