    Piggyback shocks

    Hi Guys
    Has anyone gone with piggyback shocks for Summit?? If so, are they worth the trouble?? Any feedback would be appreciated
    Thanks

    Piggybacks would be cool if you could make them fit! They are usually for crawlers though.

    The whole purpose of a piggyback reservoir on a shock is to add extra oil capacity to help keep the oil cooler during extreme use. The summit is a crawler that, when run as intended, really isn't hard on shocks at all and therefore really doesn't benefit from reservoirs at all. Save the money for a set of tbone skid plates or a dewalt motor.
