Tomorrows rough game plan:
Rear brakes, maybe move the tank back a little more, route OX cables, re-install spare tub sheet metal.

Love long weekends

I'm sure you've posted it somewhere but what size springs you running? I've got RC 4" with bb up front and IRO 6.5" in rear but I'm thinking about leaving the BBs in the front when I change them over to IRO to counter the weight of bumper/winch and plus I like the look of the front sitting a lil higher.

Sweet build

As it sits in the last pics I have 6" Clayton springs with 3/4" rear spacers and 2" fronts. Not sure what I'm going to run but I've got 3/4" and 2" spacers for front and rear to play with my final ride height once I get everything mounted up.

Hard to tell, it looks lower but I think the garage is slightly sloped. I also have the front bumper on and not the rear. I'll let ya know when everything is bolted on

I think once I get everything on I'll need to pull an inch off the front or add one to the rear FWIW.

To the pinch weld below the doors Im @ 25.5" in front of the rear tire and 24" behind the front.



Ignore the mess, me and brake bleeding don't get along.

And one more front end pic because I can.



And back out I go to move the tank back another inch and route the Ox cables.

Looks better every day. How far forward from stock is your front axle? And what did you do for a pitman arm? Stock?

Roughly an inch maybe inch and a half.

Stock pitman arm, I havent built the steering yet but it looks like the front hole of my high steer arm lines up just about perfect with the pitman arm. Rough eyeball wag though.

Hah, it should make it out OK.

If you look closely you can see your future hitch on the right side of the garage.

That last pic really shows how high the lines of the front bumper go out on the wings. I like it more each time I see it.
