A pair of lockers would surely help in that soup. Wouldn't need to beat on it nearly as hard either

did some poser flexing to test out my extended front bumpstops as I was previously bottoming out my shocks + rubbing all inside the wheel well when disco'd. not that it does me any good because my 31's drag my axles on everything if I try to wheel. REALLY want to stuff some 33's with some trimming, what do you guys think?

I haven't had any problems dragging my axles on anything and where I live it's rock central. I think you need to take some better lines.

How's the treadwear? Rotating often? I really want these to last as long as possible, but damn what a great tire so far!

x2

If anything go for longarms so you can tuck them up in the fender wells, you're barely at the fender line, you got plenty of uptravel left

probably, but alot of the trails here are pretty narrow so its either catch a rock or catch a tree.....

anyways, also found why my passenger side carpet keeps getting soaked. water is somehow working its way up and over this lip under the door seal. cleaned everything up and ran some clear silicone on it before putting the seal back. the weatherstripping also has some tears which I think is letting water run past it and onto the door seal...



on the bright side, atleast its not a heater core!

I plan on fabricating a true 4 link once i buy a house with a large enough garage, right now space is limited but its in the plans.

in the pic it does appear that I have more uptravel, last time I went without the added bumpstops I rubbed all over everything. it still has the amount of the rubber to compress, so another 1-2"
