Reservoir placement help

So, after much anticipation I got my fox coilovers today. I'd ordered 2.0x6.5 emulsion coilovers. Well, I get the call from 4WheelParts to go pick up shocks. Just before I leave the parking lot something tells me I'd better open the box and make sure everything is good. I open it and much to my surprise there are 2 fox 2.0x6.5 coilover remote reservoir shocks. SWEET!

So yeah, any one have any suggestions on how to mount the reservoirs? I saw a photo on explorerforum.com months ago, but can't seem to find the post and noone over there has replied to my pic request of said post. So I figured I'd come back to home sweet home and ask for help here too.

You should take them back first thing in the morning and let them know that's not what you ordered. LOL

It was bob's 7100 install. I knew I'd remembered seeing a ranger or exploder with from remotes. Thanks for the heads up. And again, thanks to Bob.

So far the truck rides NICE up front. I still need to level out the coilover springs though. I had my MOOG UCAs installed today, but since I had a little settling (makes sense) from the drive over to the shop I used they opted to not do my alignment (I'm not far off spec) until Monday. Gives me time to fiddle with the front to get it where I want. I just HATE working the spanner. I need to find a small pipe for leverage as my 2-piece jack handles are too long.

Nevertheless, I'm stoked. After 2.5 weeks of being truckless there now be a heartbeat again. Only other thing I wait for now are bushings to install the fox rears. The packing guy at ORW miscounted.
