    Here is a link for the upper/rear shock mount crossmember I fabbed up over the weekend. It is designed to utilize the Rancho 9012's (longest they make) to maximize articulation. It goes in next weekend after a coat of paint.
    I used 2" tubed steel .120 wall, 3/16" plate steel for the sides and 1/4" for the rectangular supports on the sides.

    Are there any disaddvantages(Sp) to using longer then needed shocks??? For example could I figer out the shock length for my truck and then order a few inches longer, just to be sure. Don't mean to highjack the post. The mount looks great.

    Looks great Waxer. That is almost exactly like mine, or the one I'm currently working on. Depdog designed it all for me.
    Anyhow, post some pics after you have it in and let me know how it drives.
    It looks to me, that you will have the shocks angled all the way, will this affect the way the shocks are suppose to work? Just wondering that's all. I'm thinking of welding mine (the upper shock mounts for the rear) a little further apart, kinda like the way Steve has his, but maybe a little closer together. Anyhow, good luck [​IMG]
