I did the same for a while but I really don't trust the spare tire carrier to take all the weight of the tire when I'm really mobbin so I threw it in the bed with some straps, and when I need my full bed I just leave the spare at home.

Is there much trimming required on rear fenders, or glass fenders required, with a bedcage and like 16" shocks? and say 33" tires? or 35s?

Bedcage has no effect on the fenders, bolt in that is, 33's are fine, 35's will net some trimming for clearance no matter cage or not.

The determining factor will be the leaf springs.

Spring under axle is going to make contact with the stock fender. I still have mine, the tires just give 'em a little kiss every once in a while...

Here's mine since I did a bunch of research looking around at bedcages and didn't find a whole lot.

I'm wondering that as well. I'm getting ready to put in the F67 pack and am debating between 16" or 18" shocks.

Because I can
And to get 1:1 stroke to travel.

Theres no real reason. They're bigger than most other peoples. I can say I have 18" stroke. It amuses me when people tell me i dont need them.
I tilted them back too which most other people dont do
Edit: this probably makes me sound like a dick, but I just like to be different

I'm running 18's with my DMZ kit on my 2nd gen. The kit cycles about 16" of travel but with trying to keep my toolbox I couldn't quite get 16's to work. In fact uses up most of the 18" stroke as well so I have less than a 1:1 ratio. I would imagine that having a lower ratio would imply that the shock wouldn't have to work as hard to dampen your movement and would heat up slower, but mine still got almost too hot to touch last trip out to the dunes and I don't even have LT up front. haha

I also have 18's at 1:1. It really works well, and the best part is the shocks don't get hot and seem to last forever. Mine are 3.0's too...which means more oil volume. It just cuts down on maintenance. The bad thing is it fucks your bed space and you end up welding all kinds of shit to it to fit your junk back there.




Crammed full of tools, jumper cables, and recovery gear. I'll weld hasps to them and get locks at some point. Or not, I don't live in Barstow anymore.
