What You mean? I'm leaving my frame and building off it for now. And just building to my shock/bypass needs , spare tire setup and bedside mounts.

Just start building your own with a sense of function and correct fab and use other designs and tips from others. That bedcage thread should help alot

i mean are you cutting your bed and putting hoops in the bed and if so where are you placing them in the front of the bed or right above the axle?

No I'm taking the bed off and fully caging the rear,and putting bedsides on. With the 64 packs and reversed shackle the mounts will be forward of the axle at the angle the pack will move. You can setup for different ratios,that's just one way.

But seriously go with a dixon kit and grab some f31 deavers and a set of 16" 2.5 smoothies and you will be extremely happy. You would be surprised on how fast you can actually go with a simple setup that is tuned properly. Mine is as simple as it gets yet i can hit 60 down the access road in Stoddard. Anyways send me a message if you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer.
