Are you camping at the campground? NFS website shows its closed.

Last weekend we camped at Guffy. I noticed their site still lists Blue Ridge and Guffy as closed but both of them are definitely open.

Thanks! has it been pretty busy out there this time of the year? We were thinking of heading out there sometime this month.

It hasn't really been all that busy. We arrived mid-morning on Saturday and had our pick of sites at Guffy. Blue Ridge had several sites available as well.

There's also a few spurs that make for pretty good camp spots as well.

Fox 2.0 front and rear. New Moog coils up front, new leaf springs in the back.

This is also on my to do list, plan on getting a RIP kit with new taller leafs in back to get rid of the lift blocks, my rear springs are de-arched and in pretty bad shape. Unfortunately its tough to fork over the money for all that, its not cheap. Was the install pretty straight forward, any issues, did you get an alignment or anything after?

My van is 2wd....so the new coils/leafs raised it a bit. It definitely needed to be aligned afterwards. I could have done the install myself but a good friend has a shop/lift so I paid one of his techs to do it. It took him 2 hours and would have likely taken me 12!

I'm looking to do the same thing to my van. Can you tell me exactly what arts you used? Having a hard time finding leaf srings.

Finally got rid of the semi-functional latch on our pantry and installed a Southco M1. Drilling that 2" hole was a little bit of a commitment!
