    Adam,
    Installed my 1.5 shackles and had a question for you. Mine are almost vertical like yours. At full droop I'm worried that the shackle may collapse forward. Is that something to worry about?

    I have never had an issue with my shackles inverting. Mine are not quite vertical. Your new ones look a bit more vertical than mine but you've also got brand new springs. I would get some weight in your bed and go flex them out on a trail or two. Once those springs are broken in, I think you'll have a better shackle angle.

    I snapped this photo tonight of my shackles. This has the weight of the rearbumper and tire carrier, but no topper or bedrack.

    And while I was outside I snapped a photo of the truck. Notice no fender stripes anymore. :) Was getting to many copycats. ;)

    Ideally you might be right, but I have no complaints about the ride quality or the flex as is, so no reason to change it.

    Yeah.... I agree. it's mostly the lift shackles fault though. The shackle angle would be happier with the stock shackles...

    PS the lights look AWESEOME, Adam!I wanted to go with 3 on mine.. :eek: and get a yellow dustcover for the centerone

    Hey man, if you ever get a chance please post some pictures of side shots on level ground, I'm trying to see how much clearance you get from the front tires to the top of the wheel well.

    I added a top plate to my bumper so the antenna is just mounted in the hole I drilled in the top plate.

    Made a small change yesterday to my second swingout. I've been using it to carry extra fuel/water. But it's not that common that I need to have extra fuel etc with me unless I'm on one of our longer trips, and I've usually got my trailer with me on those trips and I carry the fuel/water on the trailer.

    It's way more common that I need a source of air. I've never been totally happy with how I've carried my CO2 tank so I changed it up. I cut the fuel can basket off the second swingout and attached the bracket for my CO2 tank. Added a new mount for my ulitity light to the swingout.

    Small change but I like it.
