Default Terrain Tamer remote res shocks ?

I didn't want to crash the Dobinson MRR thread so i stated a new one.
Has anyone seen or priced the Terrain Tamer pro shocks (listed to suit Pajero)? being adjustable i imagine they would be more expensive than the Dobinson. i have sent them a message to see how much they are.

Same piston diameter as Billy's with slight less surface area due to a slightly larger Shaft diameter. From memory the shock tube wall thickness on the Billy's is 2mm, the Terrain Tamers are 3.5mm. Although the Dobo's MRR have a bigger piston diameter.

Pricing against Dobo's MRR will be interesting.

Some nice products coming out now, and a move to remote reservoir is a good idea.

$455 each front and rear.
So not cheap, but cheaper than kings shocks (i priced them with adjusters at $2714 set of 4 plus post from the states)

Has anyone heard or had any experience with Terrain tamer shockers, particularly the MRR Pro-Shock? Also Terrain Tamer "Smart Coils"

All feedback welcome, negative and positive.

What's a "smart coil"?

What does it do that a dumb coil doesn't do?

Smart Coils are a tapered wire variable rate coil so not only is the ride more comfortable and controlled but the reduced rebound forces of the coils are reportedly better for corrugated roads.

I ran Terrain Tamer shocks and rear coils on my old NL. I thought they were well matched, were a good combination of soft/compliant/comfortable while still offering good control and fade resistance on corrugated roads.

They weren’t the MRR Pro-Shocks or Smart Coils though.
