    I'm buying a shackle flip kit from Famous Fabrication and I'd like to see who else in the Oregon/Washington area would like to get a set as well.

    Famous Fabrication shackle flip kit

    Price: $191.35

    Approximate lead time: 1.5 weeks (plus shipping time)

    How this works:

    Contact Dwreck to place an order

    My original idea was to do a group shipment, but I'm not sure it saves us anything since shipping a small product like this doesn't really have room for savings.

    Instead, I'd like to leave this up here to generate interest, then see about having a mod day once my product arrives. I can host at my place, but I'm hoping someone else has a better spot than my driveway. Also, someone with a torch would be handy, we need to cut off the large rivets on the stock shackle.

    Now that I've done a terrible job of explaining that, who's in?

    Have fun with the rivets. If you have a torch it'll be faster than grinding/drilling them out.

    I'll order mine and if the timing is right a mod day would be cool. I might do a rear shock install too!

    Is it just a quick swap or is there cutting/drilling needed? Does Dwreck have install instructions somewhere?

    I haven't seen anything, I think there was a brief write-up on the FJC forum. Going to need to cut, chisel, or torch off the factory rivets (they are about the diameter of your thumb).
    Dwreck recommends that you stick a plug in the channel of the frame during the cut/chiseling to prevent warping the frame.

    I drilled a hole all the way through the rivet, drilled the head off and punched the rivet out
