    Using the factory one, in my opinon(this is just my opinon, no one get pissed!), is a 'rigged' way of doing a shackle flip. I am going with the ORD when I do mine. You can get them alittle cheaper from http://www.blazen91.coloradok5.com

    I did mine aobut 5 years ago, before ORDs was available. I cut a big hole in the bottom of the bracket, put the shackle through, and called it good. I was gonna reinforce it, but never got around to it. Sure, it looks rigged. But if you've ever seen a picture of my truck, it doesn't exactly detract from overall asthetic appeal.

    Hey Steve, you up for a little wheeling this Sun? One of my buddies wants to make a little pre-Moab run.

    I have a set that I'm looking to sell. Not sure what they are worth. I'll need to get back to you on this if you're interested.

    Yeah, were leaving Thursday the 12th and coming home Wednesday the 18th. I'm really hoping to buy a trailer by then, but not having any luck finding a used one. My little brother is planning on bringing his '70, we'll probably have a '93 Chevy w/straight axle, a couple CJs, a Samurai or two (hopefully the guy w/ the stretched one w/the 4.3 will get it done in time), and whatever else.

    Check your private, I'll send you my #.
