    I'm not sure about the shock itself but I know you can take the spring off and paint/powder coat them!

    Darn, that's what I figured. Thought it'd be worth it to ask though. The black stickers had me wondering. Would he have had those made custom??

    King will do any color you want but I think it's about $200 per shock.

    Just checked the King website where they say:

    "At King Shocks everything we build is custom made for you so there are many choices available when you place your order. Our knowledgeable sales team will guide you through the ordering process where we explain all the options available. You can specify every aspect of your parts including, shock lengths, hose lengths, seal options, rod end styles, custom colors to match your paint scheme or any of the over 30 options available. From mild to wild we can build whatever you need."

    One of the 30 options is black stickers.

    Cool that options are available anyways.
    Even though they are probably out of my price range.

    There used to be a king shock builder that would change the colors ect. On the fly so you could see the shock. I can't find it anymore but it was posted by someone on Facebook. Sucks cause it was pretty cool!

    IIRC the shocks on Spicy Chicken are the new EVO/KING DSV shock. I saw a post somewhere about it being a different shock all together from the blue/aluminum bodied shocks... I dont think they are just colored different... But I could be wrong?

    Ya, I saw a recent EVO Facebook photo of those. Apart from the color, what is the difference between them and the blue we all know?

    I'ed be lying if I told you I know the difference, but I THINK it has something to do with the valving, being that these are "DSV" shocks or "duel sport valving", opposed to the "standard offroad evolution" proprietary sport valving shocks? Needless to say, I'm curious as well.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
