After reviewing my plan so far, I have a few things to consider. My local regulatory body is currently in the process of putting restrictions on lifted vehicles. Nothing is final yet, but speed restrictions for vehicles with tires 35"+ seem likely as well as an inspection to get junkers off of the roads. That is fine by me (well, other than the speed restrictions) the only problem is that the local inspectors really have no idea what they are talking about and it makes me a little nervous as to how my vehicle might be evaluated. Nonetheless, I am still going to push on with this build, but I might stick with 33" tires until the legislation is passed and all the details are finalized.
I'm also considering (depending on price) going for the new MT/Rs with kevlar over the KM2's, but I'll have to see the price gap before I make any decisions.
As far as my axles go, I am at my wits end trying to get the carrier out of the front end and may end up getting a shop to do it as my pry bar isn't cutting it and I don't own a spreader. If anyone has any other methods for removal they would be appreciated.
