I told him it was way "over the top" for me. However, I can understand/respect what he is trying to do. So we roll with it lol.
As for the ride, it was 2 hours to the show we went to last Sunday and it was actually not bad at all. I have road in many stock cars that were much worse. If he had new shocks it would be rather comfortable honestly. All that weight killed the shocks though.
