How many here use shock covers and do you think they help?

I never have and I do not remember seeing any on other buggies. Personally, I think it's kind of gimmicky. In out type of riding I think they will actually hurt more than they will help.

I have them on my Teryx, I dinged the heck out of my Shock/forks on my dirt bikes so I got the habit long ago. Technically I agree with njcraddock for our type of trail riding they probably aren't required, old habits die hard though...

I have them on my T4. I don't do deep mud holes usually about the floor boards is as deep as I wanna go. I think it helps especially when you ride a lot of sandy trails.

Kind of the same topic but on know on my Jeep that is the first thing that I take off (or never install) when I upgrade shocks is the shock boots. They tend to trap too much water and gunk inside helping to kill the wiper seal on the shock as well as rusting steel bodied shocks.

I had a set on my King shocks because the previous owner had them on there. I suppose living in AZ like he did, it was probably helpful....

However, all they did for me was not allow leaves and mud to escape.

No for me again..

I talked to SmootheRide today and he suggested I put shock cover on to protect the shocks. He says they will not have to be rebuilt as often.
