Trimmed the rear fenders out they should be able to clear a 42" tire as it sits in the rear.









Also finally mounted the front license plate.

They are 16.5x9.75 and I think 4.75" backspacing but I am not positive on that.

Hooked up the on board air. For now there is a tire filler hose hooked up to the regulator basically to test the setup. Still have to set the solenoid up for the front locker off of it.

They came out nice once I grooved them and took the chrome off and painted them black. I can't believe they had tubes in them.

Are you going to cut the front fenders? Looks like they need it.

Trimmed the bumper yesterday will pull the flares and trim a little out of the front this weekend. It only hits on the lower rear of the flare with the wheels turned to the lock and flexed out.

All that's left is fender trimming and the solenoid for the front locker.

What set up do you have on the rear? Looks clean with the lcg instead of towering.

The rear is BDS J4000 4" lift leafs, Zone 1" XJ lift shackles and a 1" full perch length steel block that has the leaf packs centering pin run through it. Net lift was 5 or 6". I prefer the LCG look and it performs better here.
