Jumping photos w/only after market shocks

I'd like to see some air shots of Rhinos only running aftermarket shocks on stock arms and get some opinions from you guys. I don't wanna hear to just get LT or MT. I have other hobbies and bills and am not interested in spending that much right now. Ideally I'd like to go with after market shocks that are compatible to a MT kit later on. I know you can land from some good air with the F18's properly set up as there is a driver in the race series that only runs F18's and is very successful. I am not after launching my Rhino but its nice to see what it could handle and drive away from.

get ahold of makin-trax (steve) from afco shocks, he will not only get you the right shocks, he will spend the time to set them up so you know there right.

Just go with one of these so later on if you want to upgrade to a kit you can....
1. WERs
2. Bilsteins
3. Afcos
4. Ishocks

I did the WERs for about 6-8 months on stock arms and they are awesome, they are night and day difference over stock shocks, the control you get back is unbelievable....should be everyones first upgrade after harnesses, IMO they are part of the safety package!
and should be done before any real engine work! PLUS its a way funner ride with good suspension!!!

If you live in Vegas and need a General Contractor...call Manning Construction @ 497-5127

I'll try to dig up the video of James Hill passing Regis over the table top at round 2 of the M4SxS series Super Stock Race. James is currently 1st in points and Code Rahders is 2nd in points in the Super Stock Class. Both run AFCO Racing Shocks right out of the box, same as we sell to everyone else.
