    Nice . Didn't know they were in production yet. You should also plate / box the frame area where the bump goes

    Odds and Ends
    The kit comes partially assembled to allow for small differences like shock brand (ex. fox vs king is appx 1/2" diff comp/ext lengths) leaf pack thickness and consumers preferred bump height.
    The installing fabricator should cycle suspension to determine the proper bump height for their leaf pack. The droop may be limited by the leaf pack/shackle however limit straps are highly recommended to keep all components healthy.. The hoop orientation to the frame reinforcement plate and the lower shock mount axle tabs are all adjustable enough to get the sweet spot on any configuration leaf pack that is using factory hanger locations.

    example: my rear setup uses All Pro Expos, they bump just at beginning of negative arch and droop out all 12" of the shocks at the same point that the shackles and leafs run out of travel, limit straps stop all the suspension components appx 1/4"-1/2" prior to full droop.

    Would there b any issues if I install your kit having all pro standard pack and down the road I decide to go with the expos?
