glad you got rid of the SL! but sucks it had to be this way. How do your shocks fit in there now? they seem like they would be a little too long now.

you can saw 14" of travel is unnecessary now..till you really need it


DBR kit is really gone now? still up on their site, or when you call about it its gone or what?

The 10's still work! I'm not the first to fit them either, I have the same taller hoop as project range runner.

I am really glad the SL is gone too, I kinda hated it the whole time but did not want to admit it :p

As for the DBR kit, nobody has gotten axles in over a year now and there have been numerous reports of 0 luck getting a hold of them. I gave up in January so now rcv will be building my shafts when my tax return gets here.

Oh I just wasnt sure, the spine that goes into the diff itself is 27 spline (dana35) and I thought the actual axle was 28 spline becuase there are no 27spline 930's. Could you confirm?

they kind of look narrow in person too actually, they are 35x12.50 but I think the lack of sidewall makes them look narrower than they are
