    did a homebrew shackle flip today. i wasn't looking for any additional lift due to the 5-1/2" rear 64's i have now. i got stuff mocked into place and it worked out ok although mounting the hangers was trial and error :mad: it looks like i only gained about 1-1/2 inches :D 1st pic is before 2nd is after

    Any plans to move them more forward for a better shackle angle?? Sure would help on the droop in the rear :)
    Looks good though :cool1:

    i kinda had to guesstimate the spot to mount em. that pics is with no fuel/spare/batteries etc here is a pic with 240 lbs of sand, i think when i get full weight on it it will be about right :D
