OREO's build (RC series 2 or rustys 4.5)

Here it is guys I and pretty committed to a low cog build at 3" and 33s but today I was recommended to the Rustys 4.5. I will be building my jeep off of one of these platforms and this is starting my build thread here are a few pics of her. It's sits now on a skyjacker 2.5 30s trimmed and a bunch of little mods, thanks guys

Sorry for all the pics I waited way to long for a build thread. no pics stock

I'm sticking with my guns and going lowcog 3" 33s. I'm going to bump stop, get longer shocks and go long arms, what I lose in up travel I will gain in down travel. I do Highway driving back an forth so it will also ride like a dream

Rustys, if I can find some cheap RC long arms used I'll snatch them up and swap out bushings
