Ive seen a few trucks on here with fox shocks, mainly the pre runner guys. How are you mounting them up? i haven't seen any shocks from fox, king or sway away that would mount up like the stock ones do

That adapter won't work. It replaces the strut, and being you have t bars you don't have struts. Welding in new shock tabs would be pretty difficult with the upper control arm mounts all in one. (I think, don't remember all that IFS garbage) On a side note, I'm running fox emulsion shocks in the rear, I'm very pleased with them!

i don't see why it wouldn't work, its mounting to the same place, the reason we can't run coils on the t-bar trucks is due to the tight packaging with the c v axles, but if its just the shock i don't see why it wouldn't

We don't have "strut buckets"? I think that's what their called, that's where that adapter bolts in. 3 bolts in think. 2wd and 4wd are more different than just no front diff.

Same here which is why I wanted to do the mid travel set up. I don't really do any trail riding just some rough country roads about once per week but am slightly tired of the rough stock ride.

I made custom upper shock tabs, but I'm 99% positive that it would bolt in there, it does work with lower mount, with spacers that is.
