If your driving on the street scratch the shock replacement idea and make them removable or adjustable. Some clubs require 1 inch travel and some don't, mine dosn't allow stops for my class but im going to make some so I can run different pulls. Making mine out of 2x2 tubing and other tubing that mates inside then pinning it, mounting at factory bump stop location.

Here is what mine look like. You can set it to what ever height you desire. I still haven't gotten around to the rubber in the ends of the stops yet.

I picked up the small receivers from Tractor Supply and some 2" square stock. The receivers were milled open and I can take the stops completely out. No rattling going down the road, they can always be touched up with spray paint to prevent rust and keep them looking good. No matter what the regulations are, simply drill the square stock for the desired height.

Just ran outside and took these for ya :thumbsup:

My gooseneck setup is the Drawtite



I like the idea it just comes right out and there is no other hole in the bed, the stack is enough :hehe:

Thanks for the compliments :thanks2:


Rebel: It's 2.5" out from the frame. You just want it hitting square in the middle of the spring plate.
