Longer rear shocks

I dunno about you guys, but my suspension is most certainly shock-limited, and an upgrade to some longer models will offer significantly more travel. In the front, this is easy, some ford towers, a little fender trimmy and yer done.

the rear is a little more complicated.... not enough room to go straight up with hoops between the tire and the fender, and in my case we are on a "no cutting the body" program, so going through the fenders isn't an idea.

i'm kind of thinking about doing something sort of like this. what are your thoughts?? anybody done anything similar? what length shocks did you make work?
