    Has anyone thought about using this shock hoop? I am aware that it is designed for a yota but it would look pretty bling as compared to the ford shock towers. I was thinking that I would weld a flat plate to the end and use the supplied gussets. Then bolting the plate to the frame, only because I dont like the idea of welding the hoop straight to the frame and I also want to spread the load of the hoop over a bigger area. Just an idea, you know trying to be a little different without dropping lots of coin...or of course I have considered making my own hoop.

    To find the hoop I am speaking of on the sky page...click toyota...then suspension...and scroll to the very bottom of the page. Or check out the pirate link.

    As long as the length is correct for your setup it's fine.

    The nice thing about the "stamped" version of the F*rd tower, is that you just cut it down to whatever length your particular setup requires....with that hoop, it's more like an "all or nothing" measurement.
