    Looks good, seems like you almost have room to go up more in the wheel well to do 14" shocks.

    Amazing, JLee... I've been mulling the idea of replacing my shocks because the 12" stroke is a tad too long for the stock location.

    I've been wondering about something like this- a fabricated bucket and shock mount relocator kit. I need something like this until I can afford to throw in a LT kit into the rear.
    Do you have an estimated price? Also, can a hole be drilled up top to fit a pin-style shock mount (my edelbrocks are not eyelets.) I'm guessing I could just buy the eyelet adapter type thing or is that a no-no?

    I have not the front and back plate are 3" apart and with them loose you can set the mounting distance so I'm sure they would fit.

    Sorry about that- I just read a couple posts back where you already stated that you're working on pricing. Didn't mean to make you repeat. Definitely let us know when you have some pricing. Since I'll be installing my rear LT some time next year, this will be good for me. I'll take it to my local DuckSlayer to have him weld it on.

    These won't be tall enough for SUA, unless you mount the shock 4" Bdlow the axle. I'd look into the BR Towers for that :cool;

    O lol I'm not planning on using these shocks in my LT, I meant that this is good for me until I get my cage and 16s :D But I still wanna see these BR Towers tho! Curious.

    looks good jerry! I plan on sticking with my ap standard leafs for now and was thinking about doing a shock hoop but this would be much easier for me to weld on instead of try and fab up a hoop! I might have to pick me up this setup also, i need more flex then what my oem ext travel kings give me

    Yeah the duck just sent me a link. I remember seeing those bad boys in the shop. Definitely a sweet way to go while saving maximum bed space.
