    Sky is local for me. He has a shop in Springfield where he does his fabbing and then has some outside help on some products. Dunks Performance is an outlet for him also located in Springfield oregon. Dunks I believe is a member here.
    I know of the 2 blazers he made these for to start with.

    Yes they will work on trucks. All of his stuff is top notch. I'v never had any complaints.

    I personally have done business with Sky several times and I really like there products and customer service. They make nice quality products and have excellent customer service. I would buy again from them in a heartbeat. I personally don't have there shackle flip but I am sure it will be a quality piece of hardware. Shackle flips work fine on trucks just like they do on K5's.

    the sky flip is ok, but I'd rather have the DIY one. Plate-style shackles are just a better way to go if you ever want to have a shackle length that is anything but stock length.
