Great post! You've opened up lots of options for us all, saved money for some, and cost money for others (who realize we can get Fox Racing shocks with external reservoirs!). Many thanks.
Minor typo to correct in your first post in BOLD:
"91-91 Trooper & 92-97 Rodeo shock mounts"
Should read "81-91....."
1989 Trooper RS: Restoring and upgrading...
Done: Steering gear box, BJs, links, CVs, later Trooper big brakes, OME leaf springs, torsion bars & shocks.
Doing: interior, building a 2.6 4ZE1 turbo, assembling Megasquirt ECU
Near future: 3" exhaust, roof rack with lights, rock crawler bumpers, snorkel.
