you should be fine. They still mount in the same location, and will be at a slightly more angle. Should be just fine.

Back from the dead!!!!

Does anyone know if the James Duff trac bars would work with 6" leafs and RCD shackle? Do they have that much adjustment?

I don't see why they wouldn't work.

Icon6 Duff bars

I run them with the Skyjacker 4" leafs and the stock blocks and they're fine. Also, when I put them on, I still had my Belltech shackles and they were O.K. then. I have since removed the shackles to drop the rear a little and all I had to do was adjust the Duff's a little... go for it!
