I COULD STILL WIN!!!

Im going to do ALOT of the same stuff as you but a little different. Im going to build a D44 for the front. Im going with aussie lockers. Im going to be at 7.5 inchs of lift and 37X14.50s. Im probaly going to go with the JCR one ton steering, and Deff tnt long arms. I just bought some 5.5 inch lift Re springs so im going to get some adj coil spacers. I just ordered a locker for my 88, some UBE (mainly becuease you recomended them) and i think im going to have JCR make me a truss for it.
