Looks like your gonna have to do some trimming, looks good. Are those IROKs or TSLs?? They all look about the same when they get over a certain size...lol.

Should have all the tabs drilled for the joints tomorrow, then I'll have the lowers mocked up and maybe the upper if I can peice together a link that I want, since the 2 lowers are complete and the other 4 I got from jonathon are not finished. I should have everything for the front suspension tacked on there and sitting at ride height this weekend.

Naw I didn't post the locale. Got them from my local 4by shop, Mild 2 Wild 4x4 Customs. Wheeled with him at river rock.

Gaining access to a drill press tonight. All the tabs will be drilled for their respective joints and when this awful rain stops, I'll have a 3-link tacked onto the jeep/d44 and have some mock up flex shots.
