Looks like 33" to 34".Do you know what the cab to centerline of rear axle measurement will be after you do this?
Yeah, I definitely want to shoot for vertical placement. I've been looking at 2.5" shocks for a while. I feel like from looks alone, 2.0 shocks seem too dinky. After all the rear stuff is settled, I really want to redo my front shock setup and would like to go 2.5" there too.It's gonna be sweet! With the bed being totally fabbed you can get a great shock position for the rear springs. When I had my soft leaves I always wished I could fit a 2.5" shock. I'm of the opinion the 2.0 is just not enough shock. Just food for though when fabbing up your shock mounts and maybe leaving enough room for a bigger shock in the future.
I kinda just stole that. I put it on there so people know that I don't have a big lifted truck to look cool on the street. Funny thing is I get the most comments from that sticker. Not people that know the website, but just like the idea behind it.
That is the length I'm thinking of for the axle part of the 2-piece shaft. So the other half of the 2-piece shaft would be the difference in wheel base between mine and the shortbed regular cab pickup. In theory that's about 27".Mine is higher than that. Not had any issues on mine but I do run a little more oil in it.
But I'd think more about going with a single shaft with a cv at the t-case. If only to eliminate the complexity of a two piece shaft and not as extreme tilt to the pinion angle. The length looks like it will fall between a standard K5 shaft and a reg cab short box shaft.
That video is like a slow motion burnout.I think the 2 pc set up with a rear short rear shaft for clearance is pretty cool. The truck in this video is like that, you can’t hardly see the rear shaft much less drag it on something. (I can’t easily find a pic so you just get a cool video to watch)
