Hey all, looking for recommendations for fabbed drop hangers and where I can buy them/who makes good ones. Currently truck is packing, needs valving but also think a better drop hanger would help plus putting it further back on my frame. Here’s a pic current.

Kartek makes a good one. But you need to brace them together. I moved mine back. Move it so the front holes are in the stock rear hole locations and drill for the new holes.


Shitty pics. I just put my bed back on and grabbed these really quick.

I was looking at those. Pretty affordable. Brace where?

I was planning on moving them back as well. I have to cut the back plate off that supports my bumper the previous owner added.

Where my jackstands are placed. Those hang under the frame pretty far. Run a tube straight across those connecting the 2 of them. A lot of people bend their frames from not supporting them.

Oh I’m sorry misunderstood. Yeah that makes sense. That’s all boxed and supported. I have some ideas that would work ok.

you're talking about the Kartek Hangers? I have read a bunch of shit on here saying that as well. I will box them this weekend and hope they work ok. The stock ones I just replaced with news cause they were free. Will post updates after.Thoughts on Flutter Stack I mentioned above?

Yeah, might as well plate them all in as best you can while they're off and easy to get to, oh, i suggest also bolting them onto the frame rather than welding them on like mine are. I taco'd one, and the other is cracked in the same spot ready to go. A little extra time to prevent that would be worth it in the end.
