once the bigger tires get on it..it will fill it in a little more also when i build it the coilovers are going to be in the middle of adjustment so i can adjust up and down to play with it..

and its going to be on the realm of show stupid big which is something that i want..so score!

lol right now that angle is just full drop with the 8.8 thats how I roll it around..

the angle isnt going to be that bad either..running a divorced NP205 dropping in several inches will get me down..and I might look into running a different case that has the rear output shaft the same as the front output and clock the fool out of it..
