Nice vid. There were a couple of things you skipped (for people who don't even know what the stock suspension looks like). And since you were doing the arms and shocks, I had figured you would be explaining the shock install as well but it never happened. Either way, great vid. It will definitely help people who have never worked on their truck before.

Its tough to try an mix "getting the job done" and making it purely educational. Believe it or not one of the major factors in limiting some of the footage was the fact that I had to keep changing gloves every time I handled the camera. There's a lot of "goop" in the suspension and I was trying to keep my camera "goop" free. I killed a lot of time this way and swapping out SD cards as I'm doing this on a digital camera not a traditional camcorder. So much for having the right tools, eh.

There are ample shots of the stock suspension, at least I thought. As far as installing the shocks go its literally two nuts so I didn't think there was a lot of value there. In addition, compressing those 5100's from the ground, with one hand, while manipulating the insertion of the bolt was a feat wraught with explitives. My editing capabilities are somewhat limited ;>
... although i'm sure there was some potential "entertainment" there

If I had a second person it would have been a lot easier to be more comprehensive. Maybe next time I can get my girlfriend to run the camera for me...

All good man. It was great that you took the time to do it at all.

I'm there a couple times a year and I do belive that it is where I have seen you, but I thought I say you in Sportsmans Rondevez down the road. Do you work there or just have alot of deer butchered there?

I just shoot a lot of does. I participate in a lot of management hunts which means a lot of doe culling.

I've been in sportsmans a few times but I actually have a side business selling archery gear so I can get most of what I need through my own channels.

I'm a bit of a bowhunting lunatic... At least thats what my ex-wife says
