Guessing that's why you cut out the factory coil bucket and UCA bolt sleeve?
We're not sure if a true 10" coilover from King or Fox will fit in there. This is an 8" travel 2.5" body coilover from ADS. Their shocks are inherently longer than the rest and measure closer to what a 9" shock should be.

I thought ADS was manufacturing short bodies now too?
Pretty sure that's what MCM is using in his kits.

They will manufacture them, but it's not something we can run down there and pick up on a daily basis. The added volume won't hurt and you can pull the internal spacers out of these for more travel which will probably be needed when we upgrade the CV's in this thing which is the major limiting factor on travel right now.

The truck is rolling on all fours now. We pushed it out of the shop this weekend! I'll add some pictures as we begin to test and tune.

edit: we did have a photo!
