all depends on where you put your shock mounts. I have 6" shackles in the rear. Most guys run a 12" or 14" shock up front and a 12" in the rear if you are trying not to cut into the bed.

I'ma run shock hoops in the front and a low rand off road upper shock mountsin the rear. I've welded the lower mounts on the rear axle beside the leaf Perch. My truck is a flatbed so I've got plenty of room under the bed.
