Hooray! Too bad they killed the FX4, making the option of rear discs now - right before the truck is killed off - completely pointless, unless we convert our existing trucks as you mentioned.

said the same thing for 2009...and they didnt come rear disc...

only way to ACTUALLY confirm is see a 2010 in person.



I suspect it was added because the anti-roll control system required it.

Speaking of which my clutch feels weird in the morning after a cold night. I think the slave is going to go out again. This time I'll change the line from the master to the slave along with the slave.
