    FLM Or RPM.

    RPM will flex a bit and are a bit cheaper

    FLM are aluminium so do not flex, but if you have stock bulks which i see in the pic, you may find you are breaking bulks instead. If I was to do it all again I would swap the bulks and shock towers for RPM.

    Two aluminum towers back to back will give you the most strength

    You could also use strips it will work most of the time and is a lot cheaper.

    I ran an RPM shock tower on mine. It help up great. Make sure you also get some aluminum shock caps also. When the tower flexes it will cause them to pop off. Aluminum ones will solve that problem.

    I run rpm bulks with UE towers. Seems to be holding up fine but I havnt run my truck much with this setup. I strongly recomemd UE towers because they are the strongest on the marked and have many different shock positions. The issue as stated is that the aluminum tower will tend to break the stock bulks. If you have the extra $15, a pair of rpm rear bulks and a UE tower make for a great combo. Chances are you will break your bulkheads soon either way. FLM makes a great pair of aluminum bulks and even combo bulks, which are a great option if you have the money, although you then run the risk of breaking your stock chassis.


    Hope this didnt confuse you too much, but I tried to outline all your options

    If that happened watch the bulkheads too there a common break just like the shock towers
