Is that SERIOUSLY a donut spare????

You do know that there's a recall for those if you have a 249 transfer case, right? You could have a full size spare on Chrysler's dime if you play your cards right.

Took off the wheels and gave them a good cleaning. saw this while they were off. Does anyone elses rear springs look like this. I think the lower cont arms are just too long on the RC kit.




If i take off the pucks, that will just move it further back right...

IRO fixed length short arms are meant for 5+ inches of lift, are they not? Reading your specs, it looks like you're roughly 4.5".

Had you gone with the adjustable arms, your spring angle would look a bit better.

HOWEVER - your spring angle doesn't look all that bad. It won't go anywhere as long as you don't droop it too far.

well, I got the RC 3.5" lift with the 3/4" spacer out back. it just seems out of angle to me...but if this is "kinda" normal, then i wont worry about it...thanks...

Went and explored a state park about ten minutes outside of town, haven't been there since I was a kid. Also, I never got a new picture of all four rims finished. Also been working on my headliner a bit, here and there.
