Burned in some 1/8" plate...





Shock thru da flo...



Walla, outboarded shocks....



I'll brace it and paint it tomorrow. It really does ride sooooooo much better. One of the best mods I have done. At the moment I am running the shocks that came with my lift, which I THINK are 10 inch travel shocks.

Looks Good. Is it just the pics or do you only have an inch or so of up-travel?

hey post up some pix of the way you mounted it to the u bolt plates....

its gonna be cheaper for a piece of tube from a local shop DONT waste ur money for DOM or shipping. A piece of HREW will be fine for a brace just get a decent wall thickness.

The cylinder is at the top, and the shaft is at the bottom.

look at your bumpstops dude. There is no way you have 5 inches of uptravel. Between your bumpstops there is not way you have more then 2 inches. Yes your shock may show five inches but those bumps will not allow the shock to be fully used. Take another look man.

I was saying in the shock. But, those bumpstops compress a great deal. My tire is maybe a 1/2" from the lip of the fender at the point that it won't go any further. I know what your saying though. It looks really close.
