    This is what I had done on mine to keep the relentless fab skid. The IFS skid ties into the bent piece of DOM

    I know he’s running a 16” or so triple back there, not exactly what the kits designed for.

    Being such a small truck I would call Jeff at deaver and just have them make you a custom pack. Not much more than one of their standard pack, but much much better

    good question its a good kit but i'm not a 6lug so i have to take leafs out to make it work and i didnt have the money to do new weld on perches. so for now the axle has shims and
    even with taking the leafs out the truck still bucks a lil bet

    Are the shims stable when under load? I would be nervous something could happen when you are out enjoying the kit off road.

    I have no problems with 35s on my 4 cylinder, and I'm still on the stock 4.10 gears. I have to downshift a little sooner on hills and maybe drop 2 gears if it's really long/steep, but it's pretty flat out here on the east coast. I can still run 70 down the highway no problems. I'm looking at swapping to 4.88s by the end of the year though. I'm still trying to decide on differential, but I'll most likely go with an Eaton TrueTrac.

    The shims should lock into the axle with a pin and have a recess for the leaf spring pin, so they're not going anywhere.
