Have you had it wheel'n yet? If It works build you a tube bumper/stinger out back to protect your shackles and give you winch points and leave it. Ive noticed on my brothers toy he gets all the travel he needs out of the allpro front anyway.

Can you not make new rear spring hangers that have a built in offset to the rear?

Switch the shackles. Nice bed bob :shaking:
Oh, you like the bed bob? It's an example I use for the class I teach on Sundays, "How to bob your bed in 20 minutes or less and never finish because you rolled the truck before you put the tail gate back on for beginers." :smokin:

Just don't back into anything too hard with your new "bumpers". :eek:
I should probably put a 33 back on the spare holder to act as a damper. I had one on there for a while, worked great for pushing people around

See that would require work. I may do something like that when I get around to doing some more work on the rear. But I got my steering from Sky so I can start cutting the IFS crap off the front and get on with some really good quality work up front.

Run a longer single shackle in the original hangers. I have chevy's and ron a 9" eye to eye shackle in the stock hanger.

I have been running dual shackles for about 2 years now and i hate them they give too much spring flex when you are trying to go up stair steps. They do provide awsome flex though. I would try to get rid of them before you get settled in like me. :)
