Yep that's why this is a slow build...waiting for tires and glass till these tires are worn and these two semesters get paid for. Also why IM keeping. It more mid travel for now...cause at least I have the arms and axles when money allows I'll go full long travel up front

I would get it line-x'd or use dom16/por15 do NOT powdercoat it because it will chip and come off and will look like crap when touched up

Ya except when there's dips and cracks in the ride, needs some minor tweaking...then it'll be right, just want it to absorb terrain better. Thanks mike

Might be cause IM on 31s that it looks narrow, I'll be pulling about 10" with 5" coilovers and that's bumped and strapped, IM pretty happy with those numbers. Pulls 12" with 8" coilovers and 14" with 930 axles
IM gonna run 33" fallen wild peak ats on method standards

you will most likely be eating your front fenders, just so you know, when you hit bumps.
