On the RC website they say you can't go over 4 inches, but that's total BS. Absolutely no problems with running at 9 inches. My brother put the arms in for me while I was out of town, but he said there was still a good amount of thread left

Thanks! Actually ordered something and forgot to update. The relationship between my 35s and stock steering box is abusive to say the least, so I picked up an AGR Series II Box and pump!

Well, as I wait around for my savings to reach "axle status" I've scouring the internet looking for a clean way to get the fender wells open. Not really a hack to **** kind of guy. Iceland flares are impossible to get these days, any ideas?

Check the pics.

Front:



Back:
