My friend asked me what went in this hole and I don't know, never really noticed it before. But I don't think anything goes there. Anyone know?

Just enough.



Need to tie off the brake lines. Little bit of conflict with the tires.


Need to flip the shackle bolts around. They're hitting on the hitch.



Bull****ting in a ditch in the back yard just to check things out.

lol...Thanks y'all.

I'm so pleased with the way this turned out. I wasn't sure how it would look with that much rake, but I think it looks good. It will have less once I get the coilovers cranked to the right height. Then just have to take care of those few minor things, get it to work for some welding, and I'll be good to go.

..and that's a definite yes on the gap guards. The gap is kinda of annoying now that rear's lifted so much.

The only thing that I can think is that they use them in other vehicles that need another mount for something.

Thanks.

Yeah, the 35's look a lot smaller now. But I'm gonna rock em til they're not good anymore. Then I might go up a size or two.

Thanks.

Yeah man looks awesome! I would suggest running the smaller 2" block for the rear to help level it out. Are you using the RCD coils or the Hypercoils?

Lets see some ground shots!
