Has anybody mounted shocks outside of frame on a Toyota pickup? Was thinking this would allow me to mount longer shocks without moving the gas tank. Keep in mind Im running a flatbed on this pickup.

Any advice, will it work?

Yes, my build has the shocks mounted outside the frame rails. The main con is when your axle articlulates, the tires with hit the shocks unless you have a wide enough axle to clear. Larger (taller) tires make it worse. I'm going with a specific bypass layout, and wider axle to rectify my situation...

We did my Chevy this way, but we widened the rear axle by 3-inches per side to match the front. Mine does not rub, but if it was stock width I'm sure it would.
