only way to know for sure is to ask TC

but i highly doubt a 2.0 bypass will fit in the stock length arm hoop. tubes stick off pretty far from the shock body

I will get ahold of TC to find out. I emailed a few weeks back and never heard back so I have to get a chance to give them a call.

Plan two would be to run a smoothbody with a compression adjustable ressie like what I have in the rear now. Just kinda seems like a waste, almost cost as much with no where as much adjustment.

a bypass shock will bolt up to the hoop no problem. it's when the hoop is installed you run into space issues clearing the bypass tubes and the UCA. i'm pretty sure only a smooth body shock will work

you can get them directly from Icon right now, but they are built to order so it can take a few weeks for them to get built.

and FYI those bad boys are about $800 per shock

Im ok with 800 per shock if they can also be used if I finally give in and go long travel. I have to make some phone calls and get this figured out.
I havent had the time I had hoped for so far so I need to get the ball rolling if I am going to get this thing done this winter. I'll see if the guys are ready to build the bedcage and that will give me time to figure the rest of the details.

You could get the shocks custom made with the bypass tubes out of the way of the arm

took the truck through the mud again yesterday so I mocked up some better sheilds for the K&N intake to keep it off. Worked well but couldn't figure out why there was some muddy water getting to it. Then after the third time I opened the hood I realized it was coming off the hood when I opened it.

First rough design, now time for a final product.

I ended up ordering the TC kit which comes with a lower mount. I recieved the kit yesterday and hopefully will get it installed in the next couple weeks.

For those wondering about the secondary shock.

I will start out by saying that the guys at downsouth are the best. Marco did some research and it sounds like we need a shock that will compress to 15.10 and I cant remember the extended length. Anyhow fox currently is building a prototype shock that TC is going to be testing soon that will be application specific. Sounds like there is a king shock that will work avaliable now.

So I ordered 16" travel triple bypass foxes for the rear.
I am going to wait it out for a little bit on the secondary to see what shakes out with fox, because it is being built to match up with my front coilover.
