    I just put on a skyjacker 4" lift and 33" tires and was wondering if I can run shackles that are nearly 2" longer than stock in the rear without having any drivelines popping out or something along those lines at full extension?

    I want to say that Dave Plummer was running 4" lift and 33s and kept having his front driveshaft popping out at GSMTR one year.

    You should not have driveshaft problems in the rear with 2" shackles. The issue happens in front frequently with shackle reversals tho.
