I'm not too familiar with your model year....so forgive me. Is the speedo controlled by the VSS signal in the rear differential? If so what are your plans?

Did you pick that up locally? Looks good! How will the width match up front to rear with that 9? Do you plan to make the width custom? It may line right up with the wide front though.

would it not have been cheaper to just remount the shocks in the cage? seems expensive for such a tiny change.

hes selling his 10" 2.5 radflos as they are too long, and putting in 2.5x8's. considering they are like $600+ shocks, im thinking a remount would have been easier/cheaper.
