Haha! I didn't want to go to wide for the trails I ride. That's the only reason I went with the 10.50s

you will like the 33 x 10.5's.They tuck up in the fender and allow you to turn instead of eating your fenders.

with 4 inches of lift and 3.75 backspacing, your turning will be more than fine.

Yeah that's what I was really wanting to achieve was my turning in the tight trails I will be on out in the backwoods of southeast Texas. I will be running acos on top of springs to give me 6" or so of lift.

Yes. I did. Get some good drill bits. You may have issues with your front upper Control arm hitting your y-pipe. ..I did. I would get an IRO. Im happy with mine. you put the two side by side and its comical.

Check out my build I have some pics and a few things I encountered on the install

Awesome build riot! Any suggestions on cheapest route for front drive shaft. I have the double u joint at the t-case and the cv at the front pinion.
Thanks guys appreciate it. I have a feeling this thing is going to drain my bank account!!!

Thanks man. It will take all your money. And make your girl leave you. I would go to a junkyard and get a Ujoint style, that cv is trash. You can run a stock length driveshaft at 4"
