    I am probably going to buy the All Pro 3" leafs, and I'm trying to figure out exactly what length shocks I need get to fit in the stock mounting locations. I will be getting 2.5's, but I'm not sure about the length and I want to get it right the first time. I'm looking at King's/Fox's/Billies; pretty much everything, but if I can find a good deal on some RR triple bypasses... I'd like to grab some of those :D

    You will need to run a bedcage if you want those bypasses. Or atleast a shock hoop that goes up through the bed. Why not just got the fox's from AP?

    the foxes can be had for much cheaper elsewhere than at AP for 300 each.

    I am also planning on talking to DSM to hear what they suggest.

    Maybe like the Billy 5150's or fox/king piggybacks

    here is the reason why AP's fox shocks are more expensive, this is from Sarah...

    SARAH>These are NOT the same Fox Rears that we sell. Ours are exclusive to us and feature the 8-way compression adjuster, have the reservoir mounted on top, and are the correct length for our 3" rear lift. That is a good deal though!

    do you know how they mount, it looks like you will need something to install these for the top part of the shock.

    no not sure, but i know the bilstein 5125s need a special mount also, so i bet most of these shocks will need a mounting kit
