Google 'Threat Motorsports' then find their "short course 4 link kit." It's the easiest way to do what you want, but is not cheap.

Ive had several recommendations to go to him from friends. This shocks have kind of been a pain in the ass but he was willing to take care of it. He will probably be giving me a hand with the lt install as well.

That's weird, he's usually good about getting back to people about shocks. Hopefully no problems come up. Take some pics if you can while they're being rebuilt.

Its no biggie. We just had some set backs trying to find the right valving kits since its an older shock. I will. Hopefully they will be cracked open in a couple days.

Thoughts on 2 more Hellas or a 21" China bar?

always talking shit on the china bars. i run a china 20in with cree LED's an its given me absolutely no issues. and it only cost me $200! i could buy at least 4-5 of these before buying one rigid. so yea for a trophy truck sure a rigid makes sense, but for a dd ranger is that kinda cash worth it? nope. youre spending cash on a brand name.

Good for you
Local craigslist or forum classifieds are the way to go if you are ever interested in trying/buying a BD or Rigid bar. I got my 20" rigid for $240 and my 20" BD OnX for $350. Both give distance china bars can't in my experience.... 50" china vs the lowly 20" sr rigid and my money is still on the 20" shooting noticeably further. Throw the OnX into the ring and its over before it even began. For a DD ranger I love my OnX and find it perfectly sized and suited to my truck. Individual results may vary.

China bars are great for flood, if you know of some that shoot far then its a no-brainer. I don't personally but if you do again that is an easy route to take. Anything is better then stock Hella 500's IMO, they are just terrible. HID convert your current ones or just get rid of them altogether unless you like them just for the look.
