Not trying to high jack the thread, but can one of you guys post some up close images of the trimming on the rear? I need to trim mine and just wanted to see what others had done. I also have the 3.5" BDS springs and a 1" shackle lift. It is very flexy.

All I have are some poser pics of it on the rocks in my backyard. I have not had time to get it out since installing the springs, fender flares, and bumpers.

had a pair of custom flares made for me, mounted em backwards for more clearance, I cut almost all the way to the pinch seam on mine, then folded under for a cleaner line, then sealed that up.

this shows you how much I cut off.

Did you trim the forward side as well? I can't tell in the first pic.

4wd hardwear. free shipping, and my jeep club gets a discount, I think JF might as well. I paid 196 shipped for em. I could also use Eddies Boomerangs but my buddie picked up most of the tab for my MORE set up. Eddie makes em shipped for $55 but you need to source hardware.

I'm hoping the 3.5 BDS with more 5//8in booms.

but you know, your setup will work too.

I'm looking to see how the axle sits under the rig in relation to the skids and bumper.

Thank you much! It was exactly what I needed to see. I started going back and forth on BDS vs. Rubicon express extream duty. Its a bit cheaper but I so do not want. To save a few bucks here to spend it again shortly
