You think thats a badass picture, you wait till i get this thing Offroad ready!

oh YEah...I got them balanced and mounted last night, as well as my truck inspected.

Put them on and WOW!





You can see that itll rub like a motherF***er.
But the fenders also dont cover the front tires(pa state law) so Ill need some fiberglass fenders, that way i dont think i will have to trim. Oh and my bumper(bottom) hieght now is 28" pa state law is 24" and im going to need more lift! Only gonna lift it 2" more though.




In case your wondering i have a 4" rc lift and f150 coil seats, as well as a soa in the rear total 5.5" of lift.

I love that sound! haha, It cant snap if its not driven, i cant drive it until i get more lift, then the front end is getting a rebuilt(built d35 or solid 44sas.

I just sold my set of superlift r/a. If i actually use the d35 i would make custom r/a. But thanks.

Ive done some searchin around therangerstation tech pages, and found quite a few mods that would help my d35 handle these.

i would invest in a tire groover and cut the small lugs off of the boggers.
local guy here name dan dibble ran them and they are sweet.
he also said that claws suck in the mud, he got 3rd place at the 06 TTC.

my plans arent going so well, so i had to change them a bit.

I will be needing extended custom radius arms. Getting it to steer and brake good. The steering has alot of slop now.

Does anyone know how strong the rough coutry lift brackets are? anyone ever break one? I know they are the "pumkin smasher" but i have extended my bumpstops so that not a problem for me.
