Testing Out The Radflos In Moab

Postby ZzZleeper » Thu May 05, 2016 2:23 pm

This last weekend we made a trip down to Moab to do some trails! I was able to get a few pics of the Pathfinder as well.

Over all it was a ton of fun! The new Calmini bumper helped a TON being able to clear alot of tricky parts.

So before i went down, i installed some Radflo 2.0 Extended travel coils, and the SPC Racing upper control arms. I also removed the rear sway bar. After the first step up i actually hit a rock just right and snapped the front sway bar end link.. I was worried at first, but it actually helped alot haha. I will now probably leave the sway bar off until i need to tow something. The amount of travel i had was AWESOME! I could definitely tell a difference driving on the freeway back to SLC, but it was not bad at all. even at about 80mph it was very predictable.

Anyways, here are some pics! They are all from Cliff Hanger, and Top Of The World! There will be more to come.

Thats awesome. I love Moab. Next time i head that way we should meet up i didnt get to do many trails there.

Are you doing GoneMoab this May? I mostly will be doing it next year since my Pathy is a project at the moment.

Keep the pictures and updates coming i like how you had a comparison when you did hells revenge last time.

I hear a lot of people (myself included) that with a good set of coilovers, no front sway bar should be needed. Hence why some of the people remove them, myself included. Mine is fine now and I have 35's and 80 MPH on the highway is just fine.

I have no front or rear sway bar after getting my radflos. I think my springs are 700lbs with no front bumper so its pretty stiff. But i like it just like that.

Hey NmexMAX whats your shock length in the back radflos you got?
