      Bump. I have 1 set left and 1 more set that I just need to weld the shock mount on (and can flip it down like stock if wanted)

      Just installed them on the Trac :D I actually wound up switching these around between the Trac and the 98. With the 98, I'll be running universal mount shocks and they'll be easier to fit to length with the lower mount at stock height. With the Trac, I have shackles on the back so I wanted to raise the shocks so they're back inside their optimal travel length. The only problem I had installing was that the sleeve in the lower shock bushings was too wide to fit in between the shock tabs, so I had to grind them down a bit for a perfect fit. Other than that, easy as cake. Thanks again Brian!

      Eventually but not sure when I would do that. Or I might still have this one left then too. Send me a PM when you are ready and I will let you know.

      Just wanted to say I paid for mine wednesday night and got them saturday morning, painted them with dry moly lube and rustoleum gray and installed sunday. Very happy with the transaction and dealing with Brian, very smooth and ridiculously fast shipping.

      As for the skids themselves, these things are massive. They are massive, busting out of the box upon delivery. They are a lot bigger and better than the stocks. They went on easy, just took off the wheels and old shock mount, jacked up the leaf spring and installed the skids then attached the shocks. Before adding these my shocks only had about 2 inches of travel before bottoming out, now its really improved. I don't do any real offroading, just exploring but I just didn't like looking under my truck and seeing the shocks being the lowest point and hanging down. Problem solved with brian's skid/mount. Now I just gotta drill them for the e brake cable and will be done.

      Thanks again brian

      Thanks for the nice review and glad they worked for you! Were they actually coming out of the box? I like to know these things so I can pack them better (maybe even double box them if I need to) USPS handling can be unpredictable so who knows.

      I didn't think about it at the time, but mine were busting out of the box a bit too. They weren't in any danger of falling out but IIRC one of the seams on the box was starting to rip. Sorry, didn't think of it then.

      Yeah they were tearing out on one corner from the shock mount pointing out, but maybe just taping around the whole box, or double boxing would help.

      A double boxing would be a good idea. At the PO, everything is tossed, everything except super heavy or irregular and can't be, or letters or Express/Registered Mail.

      Imagine someone tossing the package, 5-10 feet away, into hampers 3'x4'x3' high, with more packages down inside those. Pictures which come from online orders, those go into simple 4x6" or so envelopes, and they get tossed into the parcel stream also.

      It's not my doing, it's the way the PO works. I just see it every day, I'm the carrier who receives those parcels, when I go and get my parcel hamper.:(

      Haha! thanks Don. I feel sorry for those boxes these get tossed on! I am sending out another one today that I put extra cardboard inside to reinforce the corners and I taped it up a bit more.

      That's the other thing to think about, the heavy boxes mixed with the light as a feather and marked fragile on them, cringe. People think the light fragile items just need to be marked, and don't need any packing layers etc.;)

      Yeah, my box came all smashed and open also. Brian, the plates are just too beefy. You'll have to lighten them to USPS spec-;):D



      Of course I am kidding. I still trust the PO more than any shipper available to me. This is a learning process also.

      These will not be hurt in any way during shipping, and they are too heavy to get lost. I wonder if merely wrapping all the way around with clear tape wold hold it together better? A tighter box might help too, so they do not slide around inside causing carnage to everything they contact.

      I had to go to the post office to pick up a couple flat rate packages I was receiving.. Each box was 68 lbs and was in that hamper thing.. I feel sorry for anything else that was in there when my boxes were dropped in.

      When I got there the only things left in the hamper were my boxes and the lady behind the counter had to bring the hamper to me because she couldn't lift the boxes out.
