Thats what I meant. Just get rid of some of that sheet metal so you can take full advantage of your shock set-up now. Below is how much surgery was required for me to get around 5" up

Looks good, but I doubt I cut that much. Only reason being is that I am happy with the little bit of up travel I do have. Later on I may do that.

I love the low and 35's thats awesome to see it actually done, most people think you have to have huge lifts on these things to get huge tires I love it and I think it compliments the tires, makes them look even bigger, nice work keep it up.

i bet gravity is your friend, ive heard some people say there scared to drive over 70 because they feel "unsafe" well if you didnt have lego stacked suspension you might feel a little safer, I like it looks good, and now I know I can with my 3" lift and 32's or 33's cant wait.

You can easily do that. Trim and bumpstops.

Built my tire carrier off of my hoops. First I braced the hoops. Welded up a hub to a piece of pipe then braced it in. WALA! The floor supports most of the weight of the tire so there isn't much strength needed in the carrier itself.











I would have liked to put more angle to it but I don't think the rear passengers would be to comfy with a tire in their seat...
