Our high-speed testing on the trail revealed that the suspension gave the truck a very comfortable ride. We felt more control of the truck while cornering in loose dirt and gravel because the suspension and high-end shocks kept the tires in contact with the ground and it didn’t seem to wander like we have found with lesser-quality suspensions. We beat up the Safari suspension testing it for durability and performance in harsh conditions. We hit a number of bumps, rocks, pot holes, and water crossings without being thrown against the roof of the cab. The more we abused the suspension, the better it seemed to perform. We have tested a number of suspensions that worked great off-road but offered a horrible on-highway ride with too much body roll, wandering steering, and clunky Heim joints.
