    Why do you want the 55's?
    I think nelson18matt still has his old f67's if you're looking for a set of those instead.

    Honestly, I wouldn't bother with the f55's. You'll limit you're uptravel.
    Mount the shackles above the frame and run the f67's. You'll be sitting at basically the same ride height as below the frame with f55's

    well, when i had the F55's i was running a 9" shackle above the frame, with the frame notched to clear the movement. it just didn't work.

    then i ran the F67's with a 12" shackle above the frame, and now i have the 50T pack with 12" shackles.

    OP is a 5 lug single cab. He'd have to pull out probably 4 leafs of the 50t to get the ass down low enough.

    If you put the f67 side by side with f55, the 55 is about 1.5" smaller (in terms of lift). That's why I say run the 67's with either a 9" or 12" shackle over the frame.

    I don't want to notch my frame. So would I run the 67's with a 9" or a 12" to keep it the same hight?
