I will be but for now I am just focusing on the front as that is the "difficult" part. They will be 4'' mcneil flat top fenders though

It's looking like Dixon will no longer offer the axles, I'm just waiting and hoping

Damn that sucks. I got lucky with mine, got the last set at the time. I think they were for someone else but I needed them right away and the other guy said he'd wait. The steering kits can be a big wait too

Wow that sounds like some terrible customer service... you'd think for the cash that you have to shell out for that stuff they'd be a little more helpful!

Ouch...crappy deal. I had a VW head porter like that in California once. Great product/work if you could get it...but a complete pain in the *** during the in between.

Hope you get your stuff...soon

Don't you have the superlift on? Or are you waiting to do it all at once?

i hope you do get your kit soon but i doubt it. i, along with a couple other guys, ordered the kit from aaron and it took 3-4 months to get the kit. we got parts here and there but i was happy to just get the kit.

what are you doing for axles? i know he owns a friend of mine axles since dec of last yr. i hope you have better luck then us. we are going to do a group but from another company that is getting them from RCV. RCV is a great company that warranties their axles for life which is a big plus.
