I was wondering on a good suspension setup for trail/desert riding. Rather than just getting answers specific to that, I thought it may be a good idea to start a post (I couldn't find one using search) detailing people's setups and the type of riding they do. I'm hoping we can get good participation on this so it can be a source of information for newbies like me. I noticed a lot scattered posts, but it would be nice to have a post detailing different riding setups. (Please note your suspension type LT/ST)

(Copy and Paste for your posts)
Riding Style: Desert/Trails
Suspension: Stock
Tires: Stock
Exhaust: Stock
Intake: Stock
Engine: Stock
EFI Controller: None
Complaints: It's stock.

Thanks in advance to anyone who participates. :thumbsup:

Very nice guys.

Do you like the long travel elkas glamis? I was checking out their Elite series, saw lots of good reviews on the forum.

That motor sounds like a beast, roost.
