your lift is a knuckle lift right?

If so all your geometry should be exactly as factory so I would assume yes you can do it.
I imagine noone has done it thats why noone can answer you

I like the 2 eye bolt idea...Keeps everything centered better and is stronger especially with blocks.

It would be a huge pain trying to drill all my leafs and perches for a second eye bolt though.

If the Kumho's are anything like the ones on my Ranger, they're great tires, but I find them quite noisy on the payment, more so than the BF MT's on my exploder.
