    does earls count? sounds like youre doing some sort of write up or comparison. but earls will make em whatever length you want and they're a big name. as big as any

    I plan on selling these myself maybe in the 36" range, how does that sound? Right now I have 32" and under flex they can get snug and that is with maybe 5" suspension lift so if you had 8" lift and/or real flexy front the 36" would be ideal plus you could run them with just a 3" lift if you wanted so you wouldn't have to mess with them if you went taller later on. I don't want to carry 4 different lengths of hoses just one long size.

    36 should be fine...my superlifts are with 8" springs and they have plenty of room...though i dont flex mine up that much...
