    Mine are angled back ~10 degrees, really close to 1:1 shock stroke to travel

    [​IMG]

    But your would have to be angled more for 16's

    They are llike this stock to help with axle wrap. Essentially dampening it when the axle trys to roll using the shocks.

    in all seriousness though... like others have said it has been done and its actually works well.

    my buddy Gerry had his ranger setup this way for the exact reason you were mentioning, tool boxes and shit in the bed.

    some pics, not of my buddies truck but another ranger that had a similar setup.

    yeah cut all that shit off, then cut out a rectangle piece to cap the frame, then built the horns off that.

    What he said. Also don't talk about pricey when going LT :p
    Your shocks will be very angled with 16's and 20" travel. Best to call DMZ and see what they think. They'll probably accomadate whatever you want, but they'll recommend things because they know what they're doing
