SFR, how are those bushings holding up in your crossmember/trans mount? And what the hell are those hill sensing things?
So far so good.

And those are struts/air shocks

Cool man, thanks. How do they sense hills? I have heard of air shocks, but have zero experience with them.

they're a really advanced form of an air shock

the DP3 has dual pressure chambers and are connected to each other via stainless lines. they adjust spring during decents and off camber situations to increase stability. they eliminate the need for sway bars, along with eliminating the need for a limiting strap and bumpstop as its all handled internally

Making room. Getting ready to mount the ORIs. And re tubbing the fenders because while my previous fender work cleared the 35s nicely. ...the 37s rub like crazy

And its already got a small 1.5-2" stretch

Ok, was thinking it did. The angle of the pic made it a little hard to tell what was going on exactly. I figured the 37s were in need of a little extra headroom haha.

Looking good man, love the rig as always.

Yea, I suppose I could just bumpstop it. But I've found I like a decent bit of uptravel, and don't want to lift it any higher
