If the King coilovers look big, that's because they are. Tom wanted a single shock that combined the fade-free performance of a large-diameter shock body with the accuracy and damping control of a bypass shock. Easy, single-point mounting and single-point tuning was also a top priority and a byproduct of using only one shock per corner. Since he'd worked extensively with King in the past, Tom approached the King family about producing the shock of his dreams to go on the truck of his dreams. The result is a patent-pending, true 4-inch piston, internal-bypass ber-shock. At the deepest reaches of compression travel, the shocks have a built-in bumpstop zone to control the harshest slams the desert can deliver. Up front, the big guns are supplemented by a pair of King hydraulic bumpstops, while a pair of rubber pucks insulates the rear frame from the axlehousing at full compression. After running the big F-150 at 75-plus through deep whoops in Lucerne Valley, we were stoked to find we could touch the shock bodies with our bare hands without scorching our skin - the large diameter and attendant volume of oil does a great job of dissipating the heat.
