The challenge we found at the edges was the way the frame sweeps up, making that piece crucial to whether it flexes.

Not sure where your reading that shock ,post a pic I'll let you know, mine just say fox on reservoirs. Your shocks have to be taking in and measured to level out your truck, my measurements will not matter you have way more weight in the front than me. I will have to readjust mine some as I order the add badger and winch too.

^^^^That had to be soooooo much easier to mount taking the wheel liner out. I just put my catch can in that location and getting the lower bracket mount to the fender was a PITA to reach.

Wired the cb today, mounted 2.5 gallon tank in the rear, plumb from air compressor back, I'll finish in the morning, mounted gauge and pressure regulator underneath as well and air chuck in the bed for quick access. Be able to run power tools etc now...
