Maybe..





This is at actual ride height. Here is clearance with the tires.





I think I may shift the tank back a couple more inches and bump the axle back another inch. Here is current clearance, it actually looks like it'd tuck up now, just would like a little more breathing room, easy enough.



Obviously still have to locate the lower shock brackets and sway bar brackets on the axle, adjust pinion and measure for a driveshaft when I get the t-case. Then mount the brakes and hubs, plumb the brake lines, etc.

Thanks guys.

I plan on devoting a solid portion of Saturday to it. Hoping to get the front in.

If I can get the suspension and axles buttoned up then I can have small projects until the transfer case gets here.

I'm impressed how quickly you're putting it all together. This build is barely over a month old and already you're talking about finishing up the axle swaps. Well done!

Hmmm your pretty darn close to the garage door motor. This is where you have to check to see if you'll be able to get out with this thing lifted. The embarrassment you'll feel if its stuck in the garage lol. I'm just playing, but this thing looks incredible. Keep up the solid work, making me jealous.

he can always just let all the air out of the tires for a few extra inches of room

Hah. Somewhat of an illusion. I had almost 15" over stock height to the garage door. And that was to the roof rack cross bars which are coming off.

15" to spare from stock and you're going to 6.5" of lift and 37's (6" gain from tires). You'll be only about 5"-6" from rubbing after removing the roof rails. You might need some pull down winches if you ever throw on a roof rack!
