    Does anyone other than ATO make a shackle flip kit for 2nd gen trucks? I would think this would be a popular item for our trucks, but don't hear much about them.

    Best bet is to ask ATO directly.

    Have you ever considered in buying a Dakar leaf pack instead? Or buy an AAL?

    Ok, it seems to me that ATO is the way to go or to find a GOOD shop that could fab me something, it's really not all that complicated and the flex/clearance gains would be a great value. I am only wanting to go around an inch higher in the stock leafs for now.

    If any one else knows of a "Kit" for our trucks i would be interested to look into it.

    Thanks guys

    I take this back the more i look at what is going on with our trucks back there. it isn't as simple as it is on other vehicles, especially to get it to work with various springs.
