hello, I've got a 2008 RINCON stock suspension, with stock rims wrapped with stock size Carlisle ACT tires, an RT-30 warn winch and a full complete Aluminum Products skid plate kit, and I weigh 175 - 180lbs. I would like to make a true trail blazer out of this RINCON -

I believe the first step is to upgrade the suspension - I've been looking at the Elka stage 3's as an option when I ran across your post from last year.

Could you recommend a FOX shock to achieve the set-up I'm after. I like to ride trials very hard and fast with an occasional jump or two.

Being compact, on the Rincon I can ride the hills, rocks and creeks at a slower pace as well as handle the trails with a little more speed-

I'm not a big MUD guy and because of that, I'm more than ok that it lacks a little in the power department -- it makes up for it with it's trial handling characteristics.

But I want to make it better. Much better. Can you recommend a solution?

Would you read this article. This is what I am shooting for...

Thanks John
