I have 1.5" Ground Force shackles on my 07, but that's not the body style you're looking for. If you want me to, I'll post some pictures of mine. Here's a couple threads to look at:

Whats up Dalton? I just ordered 2" drop shackles for my truck. Should be in this week! When I install them, I will take pics and send them to you!

Hey Dalton, looks like I may be too late! I installed the shackles and took some pictures. To tell you the truth, it wasn't what I expected. But in the long run will work better for me when I get some bigger wheels, and have to haul my quad to the races. They were super easy to install, also!

I had some S1S shackles a few years ago and also removed my overloads. It was noticeable by measurements and visually but the big difference was the less work rolling in and out of the bed LOL.
