    Sir, I would like a set of shackles and a Roof Rack, I know you pretty busy building one in Billet right now, but do you have any of the first ones you did available? Or what is the process to get one? I am really looking forward to one with lights on all four sides.

    I`m interested in your rear shackles for my 2015 DC 4x4, I`m putting on an LRO spacer lift on the front, not going to use the rear blocks. I`d like it level with no rake, what do you suggest?? How much for them with shipping to 11780?? And do you think I`ll need the carrier bearing drop?? Thanks for the help... Paul

    Hey Coachbuilder,

    I'm putting together all the parts i need for my BDS 7 inch with the Fox coil overs. What would you suggest to run with that kit, the coilovers wont be cranked up as I want a smoother ride compared to higher lift. Which of your shackles would you recommend? +3 has been the common consensus. If I could get some pricing and what you recommend as far as bushings and such that would be great!

    Thank you for your time,

    Ben Teed

    I am trying to find out how much +2 shackles and poly bushings are. I sent a PM but got no response. Please let me know. Thanks.

    I sent you a PM a while back about shackles and you quoted something around $180 for just the shackles. How much for them with the bushings? I might go with the +2 shackles if and when I decide to order. Do you have those in stock?

    Got a question for you Coachbuilder. I have a bone stock 2014 Tundra 4x4 (1794) crewmax. As soon as my local shop can locate them, I want to purchase the 5100's and have them installed to level the truck. But with a level truck, I don't want the rear to sag when I pull my 19ft aluminum boat or my 5x10 utility trailer with a 700lb atv. However, I'm leery about lifting the rear of the truck as I've heard you can inherit a shutter/vibration from the driveshaft. Additionally, I've heard that shackles are a better way to lift than using blocks. Would you recommend the +1 or +2 shackles? Also, if I use either one of those shackles, would I really need the carrier bearing spacer kit? Thanks.

    How do I sent payment information?

    I have a 2010 Toyota Tundra I'm looking to do a little bit of a lift on i was looking at the 3 and 1 but have seen your +3 and +4 shackels for the rear (also i have the air bag setup in the rear can i use your shackels in conjunction with it) but I wanted some advice from you on what u thought would get me most lift for my buck with out sacrificing ride. I want to be able to fit a 35" tire with out spending 2gs on a full lift. I see people offering coil over lifts for the front that gives 3 inches but is that the best rout or should I just go with spacers in the front. I wanted to see what you thought. I am also purchasing a set up rims and tires for the truck wanted to see if you had any recomendations on specs (offset and other specs ) I should look at for rims that will work good for me if I decide later on I want the 6 inch lift and What's your recomendation on tires that get the best life and are still the off road agressive look?

    Getting my shopping list for my lift kit together for 13 CM 4x4 for when i return from my deployment. I'll be running the BDS 7" basic kit, 22x11 -24 offset, 35" M/T(undecided on the brand). I would like to know what the price is to order your shackles and CB drop kit. Not quite sure on what size shackles I would need to level the truck or have the rear slightly higher. Thinking 1.5-2.0". I also have the firestone air bags. Shipping will be to Florida, 32566.
