you do NOT need to cut the bed with flipped STOCK shackles.
Kartek makes a drop shackle hanger that is supposed to compensate for the shackle flip and give back 1.5" of height.
i am running f31 deavers, kartek hangers(moved to the rear of the frame now-handles better imo) and Blitzkrieg shackles which are 7.5" eye to eye.
i can fit 33/12.5's under the factory bed, BUT bedsides were pulled about 2"
with the deavers, you can call them and have them put more arch into the leaf springs to achieve lift if needed, my pack is re arched and added a leaf(totals 8 now). it is more of a performance leaf pack than a lift...
all in all, i am probably only 1.5" higher than stock
