    heres the problem the boss only slips me "truck money" every so often so to keep going i need to do stuff around the $200 range. Already have a 4" lift and 3" body lift, 14 bolt ff in back just put in the ORD steering box brace. The problem is what to do next. Here are the choices
    1. rancho 9012s
    2. Steve Frisbes diff cover
    3. ORD shackle flip
    Building it for rocks so experenced advice would be great as to importance. Thanks

    I don't have the shackle flip but most of my friends do. I would say it's a worthy investment.

    I would go w/ shocks---easy fast, and you can wheel the same day. though i would go cheaper unless you want the adjustable.

    I'd go with Doetch Tech DT8000 shocks and save a few bucks. Then ask us again.../forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    14" of travel...for a lot less than the RS 9000's. Matt at www.westtexasoffroad.com sells em.

    rene took the words right out of my mouth.... hmmm... wonder where he got the idea... /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    at any rate, yeah the DTs are $30-35 each. Personally, if I was you I'd go with the shackle flip now... and get the shocks when u get $150 from the "boss" and are wondering what to do...
