I have stage II with gussets, the weld on type. They have been in my garage for over a month and I haven't had a chance to weld em on. I didn't need the blocks because I already have blocks from a lift kit on it. Trevor makes great products and his customer service is second to none. While he was fabbing mine some of his equipment went down and he wasn't able to cut the gussets, he personally called me and offered the stage 3 bars without the gussets and offered free shipping for my inconvenience. I declined and waited on the ones I ordered and paid shipping as agreed. But that went a long way when he personally phoned me and told me how long the delay would be... 2 thumbs way up from this guy!!!!

I have the stage 2 7" traction blocks on my f350. I installed the blocks n all but haven't drilled the holes and installed the bars yet. The fab on the whole kit was very nice. Very "precision" fit. I like the blocks. Also went with the u-bolt flip and 3/4" u-bolts with top plates. Main reason I haven't put the bars in is that they seem to long. I have an extended cab long bed so naturally I got the long bed bars. But I'm thinking seriously about cutting the threaded inserts out of one end and shortening them a bit.
What's y'all's opinion on this? The cab configuration should b the only difference between an extended cab long bed and a 4 door short bed so shouldn't I be able to go shorter on the bars? Shouldn't make it bind or anything. Sorry for the hijacking, I been gonna start a thread about this but when I saw this I fell right in

The bars need to be long to help axle flex. They should reach in front of your factory fuel tank. I also got the U bolt top nut conversion.

For standard cab 8' bed. Some people have aftermarket fuel/water/air separators where the long bars would bolt to so they need to be behind aftermarket stuff.
