how much trimming did you have to do to get them to fit in there? your still at like 4 inches of lift right?

i have my 99 sitting on 31's on a 4.5 inch lift (not exact just, haven't measured exact since i did it months ago) but it looks like i could easily put a 33 on, just i couldn't flex as much as i do now without some trimming.

was just reading up on ohio laws and from what it looks like windshield banners are actually prohibited unless its no bigger than 4x6 and placed in one of the lower corners, so my JF decal was actually illegal during the time i had it on! Are amber turn signals required or can i just have the brake lights do the blinking? Im wondering because i thought of a new rendition to the dude in an xj tail lights and it involves keeping the reverse but placing an oval trailer light in place of the red and amber and bedlining that.

You would think that would be ok but with ohio's laws towards automobiles there just screwed up.

second that.. If your light is blinking when making a turn, I doubt a cop will pull you over. They only pull over vehicles that have that diy 'look' to them. Just make it clean and simple...no one will question it.
