    The shackles are after market warrior shackles part number 153 which are longer than stock and give about 1-2" of lift and the aal are just extra leafs to put in your current leaf pack.

    i just got 32" BFG M/T put on my X today and i love them already. Plenty of room with the 3" BL except for a small piece of the plastic fenders that rubbed on sharp turning but that took bout 2 sec. to cut off. So no probs now with it. Even though i dont like the TT/Shackle idea i might go ahead and add about a inch worth just for the extra room.
    IMHO i like the BL better but both are a great way for a few inches

    if i were you id go ahead and just add the tt and an add a leaf. because if you have shackles and a 3" BL your shackes are gonna stick out bad and look goofy.
