Will you be able to get the nuts off if you do that lr better to find shorter ones?

I have that same Wheelers kit sitting in my room. Hoping to install soon. Everything looks solid but aside from looks I really couldn't tell you anything else about it.

I’d stay away from cutting for the sake of removal later down the line, re-threading the end can be a bitch if it’s not cut cleanly and most wheels won’t preserve a thread

I definitely recommend Wheelers for just about anything. Their CS is great, they ship quickly and they carry a ton of odds and ends you cant typically find in other places. We are running their flip with their super bumps on all of our vehicles mins the T4R (obviously).

I've got one but had my u-bolts custom made by a company in Gilbert AZ. I use the Icon top plates which double as striker pads for my air bumps. I just installed the wheelers ones for a buddy and they seemed to be perfectly fine, just not quite as heavy duty as the ones I had made.

I've run my wheeler's flip kit for about 8 years now without any issues, I think really any kit is going to be good enough!

Oh I don't disagree at all and if I were doing it over again, I'd probably go that route. Spectrac was a pain in the ass to deal with.
