Ok, here are some pics of how i did my shocks. I got 4 of those shocks stud thigs from sd.com that are made to go on round bars and i put two together on the top bar of the behind / under brackets and i put the other two on the bottom of the behind / under lower bag brackets. The shocks are from autozone and are supposed to be for a 1989 Dodge Caravan. Believe me, it took me and my buddy at autozone about 45 min of searching through the back and measuring to find the right size shock! The back of the truck rides awesome! And the shocks were very cheap..

i read that 2800 bag is gonna ride just about as good as the F9000

plus i like the fact that it can take more then 100psi...

I just realized that you only have those shock mounts basically tacked on ...arent you worried about them cracking off?

Actually, they are way stonger than they look. At the time, that was the best way to do it without alot of extra fabrication. They have been on there for over a year now and havn't budged, cracked, or tweaked an inch. I pop up the back with 200psi daily and the shocks bottom out to limit my bags travel and they have held strong. The only thing that has happened is that i have knocked a few of the lower shock bolts out, that was just because i didnt have loctite or lock washers on them, so I would have to say its a pretty solid setup
