    \"Double shackles\" in 4WPW mag

    in the aug/sept issue there is an orange dodge p'up that has what looks like a rear hanger and shackle in place of the front hanger, therefore giving it 2 shackles on each rear spring. the shackle is in the "factory" position meaning it is above the spring just like a factory blazer. the axle stays positioned w/ track bars and supposedly the double shackles gives it a few more inches of tavel.

    anybody seen or done anything like this??? looks pretty interesting and easy to do if the results would be worth it.

    There is a place in CA that does this also called Fat City. There are a couple of Fat City guys on POR.

    I believe their site is at: <a target="_blank" href=http://www.fatcityoffroad.com>www.fatcityoffroad.com</a>
