The Overlanding Specialist

Overlanding often means long distances and heavier loads, so Old Man Emu took features from 45 years of Nitrocharger production and 10 years of ultra-high-performance BP-51 manufacturing and combined them into the MT64.

Bigger. Bolder. Smoother

The MT64 showcases the same stout 6061 aluminum construction as the premium BP-51 models, complete with a hard anodized finish to protect the shock’s surface.

These monotube shocks have large 2.8-inch bodies and large bores. This big bore lets the shocks have more oil, and more oil equates to increased heat dissipation and responsiveness, especially when combined with the aluminum body.

With unmatched comfort and reliability, the MT64 will keep performing as the road gets rough and the trail gets tough.

Features

  • 2.8″ 6061 aluminum body
  • 2.5” high-flow digressive
  • 1/8″ aluminum wall
  • Type III hard anodizing
  • BP-51 shaft guard
  • Gas pressurized nitrogen
  • Internal Floating Piston (IFP)
  • Large, highly tuned shim stack
  • 7/8” rod shaft seals

Why It’s Special

MT64: The Overlanding Specialist

Overlanding typically involves covering extensive distances while carrying substantial loads. To create the MT64 suspension system, Old Man Emu ingeniously merged elements from 45 years of Nitrocharger production and a decade of crafting ultra-high-performance BP-51 systems.

While the Nitrocharger is a reliable set-and-forget upgrade for OE shocks, and the BP-51 offers adjustability with remote reservoirs and the ability to run all day in the desert, MT64 fits in between taking attributes from both and combining them in one monotube shock.

Why We’re Excited

Innovation, Distinct Approach
