I looked at it again today, skid bars and a little rolling of the rear fender I think we will be good.
Here are the shackles I built.

Driveshaft issues w/the longer shackles?? I saw a link recently for shims to angle the axle up a bit. Might be a nice small addition.

There's not alot of change with the 2" longer shackles, but you are right, I do have some 2-4 and 6 degree shims if I need them. The fender to tire change was 1 1/2 inch not much but just enough.

Also I noticed it rides much better, smoother?
