GM Hangers
Sky’s Off-Road Design drop-shackle system allows ’79-’95 Toyota pickups and ’96-’04 Tacoma’s to use 62-inch Chevy rear leaf springs. The high-clearance system is made so there is less shackle hanging down and requires welding, along with the relocation of suspension components. Included with the kit are drop-style shackles with internal anti-inversion stops, Sky’s leaf-spring hanger kit, and Grade 5 hardware.

Rogue Bends
Rogue Fabrication’s air-powered tubing bender comes with a built-in degree indicator, die set (up to 1.75-inch OD), and everything you need to assemble the bender. All of Rogue’s die sets bend a full 180 degrees and when properly equipped, the company claims the machine can bend 0.250-inch-thick, 1.75-inch DOM steel tubing. The bender requires an $80 air/hydraulic cylinder for power, which is said to bend over 90 degrees in a single cycle.
