Aftermarket Shocks for Trooper

Recommended Posts

The back right corner of my trooper is starting to sag. Think my dad worked it a little hard on the whoops and blew out the shock. Does anyone have a resonably priced set up they used for aftermarket shocks? I can't justify putting 3k worth of shocks on a machine I only paid 4k for used lol.

Thanks for your input in advance!

How well does your trooper do on whoops and bumpy hard pack? I am very interested in going with foas. They are reasonably priced. Also I have gotta ask how you made your rear fenders?

During this bad weather, (winter), I just reworked the front shocks to have more rebound dampening and haven't had a chance to try them, but I'm sure they are as good as any other shock, way better than stock, and you can rebuild them. The rears were doing quite well, but the front had too little rebound dampening and I have just fixed that, I hope, but need to test it.

I'll have to take some photos of my fenders for you, but the plastic came from http://www.speedwaymotors.com/in the form of a 10’ or 25' X 22" X 1/8” rolls (http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Colored-Plastic-Rolls-25-Ft,31414.html ) and the frame work is a piece of 1" X 1/2" channel iron bent around the tire and supported by 2 1/2" square tubes and stabilized at the front.

photos later today, hopefully.

My whole air shock setup cost me about 1300-1400 rides Awsome can't power slide though without body roll but I like it a lot

Good to hear. They have been trying the new air shocks on the Supercross bikes and they have not preformed as well as the old setups. Most of the riders have returned to there old setups siting lack of feel in the air shocks.

Ya Rocmoc I really like it, air shocks are coming a long way and over the weekend I watched a show called xtreme 4x4 and theres these new off road airstrutts coming out its almost like a dual rate air shock with lots of adjustment not with just pressure but valving and they also cut the wieght down. Im gonna try post the link when I think to watch it again. What the latest with the JEEPS

You mentioned two different sets here. I take it the bottom info is for the rear shocks?

      I Recently purchased a Massimo T-Boss 550F last fall with their 60" snow thrower because I couldn't find a decent UTV here in Southern Ontario; nothing in stock anywhere. I am having really bad buyer's remorse after spending time on it and reading all the bad online reviews. The company boasts the fact that it is built in Texas, USA, so I was hoping to do the right thing by buying, "Made In North America" but it is still Chinese Junk, assembled in the USA. and I am starting to realize that I am going to have a lot of difficulty getting parts for this thing; I can't even get an oil filter, finally bought a "Hisun" filter and hope it fits. i busted the shear pins in the snow thrower and can't find replacements for that either. The thing is so hard to change gears most of the time; I am terrified I am going to wreck something. The place I purchased it from is absolutely useless. Can I adjust something myself? Anyone out there have this problem and have some advice (besides selling it and buying a good brand)?

      Looking for the truck bed components 2018 Textron 900 Stampede.  There is limited information available for the assembly.  Might need a parts list.

      I have an American Landmaster LM500 with an old style snow plow hook-up.  Unfortunately, the mounting bracket broke & I lost the key part where the plow receiver connects to the cross bar with two pins.
      I checked with customer service & they said...

I believe they are sold as a kit though and they are not cheap, part # 15329. I’ve included a photo below since the web store does not have a photo for that part.

      I checked with our parts department and neither the kit or the components are available as that was the older style hook up system. The only option at this point would to have something manufactured. All of our current plows are either dual actuated or winch hookup so we would only have components for those models as of currently.
      In the picture, below, it would be item #5 (the one with the two mounting brackets that hold the pins that the plow mount latches onto) - not the top one in the picture, but the one below t hat.
      I have all the other parts - but the missing part is critical to mounting the plow.
      Does anyone happen to have an old one they could part with - or have an alternative solution?
      The rig wasn't optimal, as you had to use the winch to raise & lower the blade & manually adjust the angle.  It kept falling off when I was plowing snow - as the pins that hold it in only have a groove for a pin clip & they would often get knocked off & then the plow would hang down & you'd loose the pin - then it would get all messed up.
      Thanks in advance for any advice.  I am thinking of going to a welding shop to see if they can create something - but it will still have the same limitations as before - the pins are highly specific and not cheap

      Hi all, New member and new joyner trooper owner here.
      Just picked it up yesterday. I worked for it. -40C here in Winnipeg, Canada loading it into a trailer. Unit was too tall. Some ratchet straps, recopricating saw and a lot of F^#ks. 
      Anyway she came with a broken front driveshaft. One of the ears was cracked off. I have a replacement but i am unsure how the driveshaft comes off the transfer case. 
      Doesn't sem to pull off or have any way to remove it. Any suggestions??
      Thanks,
      Wes
