Mine was a little more rusty than yours Glenn.

As long as I had the bed off I figured I'd slap some paint on there.

That was the right rear. I noticed that the suspension felt soft and the truck sagged on that side. I used rust oleum primer and paint.

What rear shocks would give the best ride on and off road?

I'm glad my area was just hit with some rain, and about a minute of wind. Also glad the area I live in has underground power lines
I hope nobody's rangers were hurt

We have underground power lines in our development too, but somewhere down the line it connects to above ground lines. We got fed up with losing power so last year I installed a standby generator. Let's just say we grin a little bit when it goes out now.

Well I was in Woodbury till 2 am but the bad storms kept creeping south...so I hurried home then, and when I was a mile away from home, there was a down pour and I couldn't see much.....and of course there's a dumb slow driver in front of me....I finally park in the garage and about a half hour into the down pour it starts to hail....let's just say I'm happy that I decided to come home rather than spend the night in Woodbury with my truck parked on the street....
