I do like the idea of being able to run shocks without having to run wheel spacers.

I know I could get a wider axle but I'm poor. Lol

What's wrong with wheel spacers?

Well played. I do have 1/2" spacers in the front and completely forgot about it. They are skewered with ARP wheel studs and are not the offset type that are famous for grenading.

this^^ they will still be just as effective during normal up and down action. I guarantee 90% of you guys that have the shocks mounted outboard will run when you articulate the rear suspension.

I figured the 1/2" ones still used the hub studs instead of having their own studs like the ones in the pic.

I answered your question about the measurement a few pages back. But any of the other packs will work better because they will have more up travel do to it sitting higher from having more arch

I'm running F55 with 9" shackle through the frame on my 1st gen 5 lug. My rear was set up by Tim at DMZ. Pretty sure he knows what he is doing. Never had an issue with my rear. In fact my front Chaos kit cannot keep up with the rear.

56 sounds right for a 9" through the frame so the pack doesn't buckle when it flattens out.

I'm running the 50t with 12" shackle over frame at 52.5. Its a nice pack. You may need to pull a leaf if you sit too high. I have about 9" to 10" of up travel. 3 years old and still doesn't sag.
F55 is more for 5 lugs or if you have no weight in the rear. Great pack if you are sitting low.

The whole truck is pretty simple. Its something he threw together while he builds his bigger project. The 5.3 make it pretty fun to rip in.

Did he find the tire? I was driving my boss's dually down the freeway and got passed two tires. Thinking it was odd I looked in the rear view and realized they were mine! They went about a mile, and I felt really lucky they didn't hit any other cars.

Ya, Michigan sand is very soft. It just bounced a few times rolled by and dug in.

I broke a hub on my quad taking off on a big step up. It ended up going half way across the track and almost hit a injured rider on the ground. Someone had to stop it so it wouldn't hit him. Kinda felt bad.

first jump below. Broken spacer was attempt 2.
