    Is anyone running this? I am trying to see wether or not it would be possible to do this. I am running a 6" lift and want it to be at least 6" in the rear. I talked to Mr. Watson toady and it was possible, just want to know if anyone is running this and what they had to do to make it work?

    If you have the ORD flip I was under the impression that you need to just swap the left bracket to the right side and vise-versa.

    I plan to do this on mine.

    I'm running the f150's with a bolt on shckle flip and 2" extended shackles. With the stock f150 springs it sits at 6" of lift. The ORD shackle bracket reversed will get you close with an extended shackle. You might have to make up a few inches to get your desired lift unless you run an unusually long shackle.
