    I was lucky enough to get a hold of a sliding V from Echobit a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, it is not compatable with my reverse shackles I got from Marv.

    So, it sadens me to have to get rid of one or the other, and I am goin to sell the sliding v. If you want to know what it looks like:

    This bar is for anti-wrap and axle location necessary for 57" springs (or other soft springs).

    I am selling it for what I paid for it, $310 shipped to you. It is new, practically unused, except where I put it on my truck to ramp it. This one is actually beefier than the ones in the pic, as he improved the design after those pictures were taken.

    well, we don't have any "before" shots for comparison, but here is a link to the pics I snapped when we went to ramp test it after the V was installed.

    Before the V, the spring arm was able to open up quite a bit, but now you can see it only opens up 1.5 to 2 inches before lifting the tire off the ground.

    yeah, it was built to work with the echobit flip which locats the springs quite a bit differently, therefore it WILL limit flex on most any other setup..
