    I have a tent, gear, spare tire, 10 gallons on water, gas. It's a 6ft bed, fits lots of crap. Just don't want to ride around with a ton of rake when not loaded down

    I'm interested in the new shackle hangar and longer fabbed shackles. Seems like a good idea.

    You're going to really like it, this tension hanger has no compromises vs stock hangers.

    Quote from the first guy to install the new hangers:

    "I teared up a little when I pulled them out of the box. Absolutely gorgeous! Best work yet!"

    He'll be at Rock Therapy trying to drag them over rocks

    I don't think I'll be able to use this kit, my extended rear shock length comes out to 24.80". And the recommended appears to be 25" min.

    That's where the new mid travel tension hanger comes in, works from otherwise stock to fully setup trucks.
    This new hanger is the perfect first mod on a Tacoma, because it cleans up the twitchy stock ride. People spend thousands on shocks and springs to make it ride good but still hindered by the stock hangers.

    This pic shows the new hangers with stock shackles almost fully laid down in full droop scenario. If you need more information, go to my website and call me Monday

    YES! Finally someone offers a replacement for the stock elephant ears. I can't wait to see the details, especially if you are also offering a stock length tension shackle with a zero fitting and poly bushings.

    Can we get some installed pictures please? I just got back from a 2 week road trip from Denver and Moab and before I left my passenger hanger was slightly bent and on the trip I landed on the driver's hard and bent it worse than the passenger. I'm running dakars with the additional leaf and extended 5100's. I'm happy with the ride, flex, weight carrying and ride height of my current set up, but the factory hangers are not up to the task and aren't going to last taking big hits. Have you thought about incorporating a triangulated crossmember like The one from Defined Engineering that I'm pretty sure is no longer available? Their website is still up, but no phone # or returned email.

    May have been a shitty leaf but I snapped a brand new allpro expo this weekend. I think it was the length of the shackle. (5")

    Until I can hear from someone with the 5" shackle and allpro expos I'll be running the 4" shackle. Under compression and weight the leafs look stretched. Main leaf snapped from tension.
