I think the purpose is for approach angle... I could be wrong tho. He also has those sliders at the backside of the leaf springs on that front axle... Tire goes up and backwards slightly. Makes sense in my head anyway, lol.

TrePaul's was forward like that also.

That's the idea. Axle is 4" forward from stock.

I think I still have some air in the master cylinder. It stops ok but I know it can be better.

Still trying to fix the winch and somehow the hellas filled up with water. Might just get rid of them and find a cool led bar.
