Tail light boxes are almost done, just need to finish the mounting. They don't look to hateful. No pics yet cause I'm a dick.

So a few questions, what's your biggest draw back on 35s? Would you do 35s on stock axle or say a 44/9".. I've got a d30/8.8 combo both built decently.
Also what travel front shocks do you of run? What's their full extended length?

The only drawback is that I have 3.55's, though my 4.56's should be here today. As far as stock vs. 3/4 ton axles, I've done passed up a 44/9" and a ready to bolt in set 44/60, so you know my answer . Reason being is that both were wide, and I'm trying to keep it street legal. You can wheel stock axles hard, but just be smart about it. With your axle combo, I'd run 35's right meow.

I run 10" travel 5100's up front. Yeah, I could use a 12" travel, but lifting a wheel occasionally doesn't bother me and I'd rather lift a wheel occasionally than cut my shock mounts up AGAIN to make room.

Our state law is something like 4.5" inches of tire uncovered is illegal. And I'm right at that or a little over that now. And flares are gay, so that's not happening...

I don't think MO has any such laws.

Ghey or not - I know there's no way I'm gonna waste my time or money attempting to jerryrig any kinda flares.

That isn't the state law. You must have market past the tires, if they stick out. Flatlander ran into this.

Cops don't bother if you make crazy lights like tony did.

I'm back after being banned for a week. I'll get some pics up. My tail lights are mostly done, fixed my slider box, and also did a little wheeling!

Nah! I was just trying to help defend another forum member from a forum Nazi moderator in the YJ section. I won't say who because he will probably get butt hurt again and feel that he must show off his power again and ban me for life.
