    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    You can see here if you drilled a hole in the back of the upper mount you could get that nut closer to the side of the bed. The problem is that upper is so close to the bed you would have to drill a hole in the bed to do so.You might beable to get away with not drilling but I'm sure the nut would contact the bed side. In the next batch I'm just going to cut a larger hole in the back side of the upper mount to give you guys that option with the only modification being a small hole drilled in the bed. Doing this with give you another 0.695" of clearance it's not much but it could be the difference between hitting the tire or not and full flex. Just doing so would make it so the 2.0 shocks would be to only thing you could run. It's kinda a toss up to get longer shocks in without cutting changes need to be made IE wheel spacers or less BS wheels. If you don't mind cutting the bed you can always cut the bed and move the uppers further in giving you more room for tires.

    How big of a hole did you cut into the top of the bucket? I might just add that in the next batch so the 2.5's will clear in all of the kits.

    This is where the mount had to be cut to be able to fit the 2.5's

    I know nothing about the defined kit so the best thing to do would be to order both before the shocks and measure for shocks once everything is on the truck.

It has more stuff done to it now.
    Whats the difference between King and Fox shock mounting? Would it be as easy as larger bolt hole or the hole in the top to make room for it? I would like to stay with Fox all around.

    Your guess is as good as mine I would assume eye to eye shocks would be the same. As far as I know a 1/2" mounting hole is the standard. The main thing is compressed and extended lengths.

    Those def wont fit. I'm hoping to fit 2.5's like TX PRO did on the previous page. Have you seen the ones with an internal bypass?

    I havent done my homework on them yet so I have no idea what theyre about.
