The rear actually flexed a decent amount. The rear driver was tucked into the wheel wheel. I have the shackle relocation boxes and they helped quite a bit.

Went wheeling in Rennie again this weekend! Very impressed with the Jeep! Flexed out great on our "Flex Rock" and gain the Aussie locker was flawless

After always getting a sore arm from hanging out of my door window while wheeling, I have decided it is time to build some half doors. Here are some of my thoughts jotted down. I want to incorporate storage cubbies on the interior side of the door, which will house fire extinguisher mounts, for both driver and passenger side.



Something close to this

Picked up a HP D30 and a 8.25 housing yeaterday for FREE. I don't need the 8.25 but it was free, so.... I plan on rebuilding the D30, replacing with HD brackets and a truss, new bushings, chromos and then gear it and maybe a selectable locker

Today I have decided against installing the Notch Custom X-max flares. The rear installation is just TOO much. So because I only plan on running a true 33" tire, I'm just goona trim and run flareless. Pulled the rears off now to match the front. Time to trim.

Cleaned up my spare HP D30 tonight. Now it is ready for some HD LCA brackets to be welded on as well as this mini truss (which has to be modified a bit) and then box in the passenger side UCA bracket.

Decided to man up and trim my rear fenders... I'm pretty happy with it, but I'm not done yet, because I have to cut my bumper along the side quarter panel which is fairly thick and get the rest of the fender behind it. So far so good though!!
