It's looking good. Should sit as tall as mine. The 37s are fine.

Stock front and rear. Who needs to protect the thousand dollar locker in the front anyways...

I'm keeping them stock til I have to replace the gear oil during the break in period. Gotta spend my money where I need it first. Hopefully a 14 bolt ruffstuff cover will fit in front of the gas tank.

I think when you buy your covers, I'll buy mine. We should get a good deal if we go in and pay cash for 4 covers at once. When I got my 8.8 cover I paid $80 cash. Walked in.

What's the 14 out of? What's the backspacing of those rims?

Please and thank you

That 37 has lost some air... ha. But yes, that's on its own weight.

The 14 bolt is out of a late 70's Chevy 2500. Its the older style so there aren't many ribs on the bottom, which I wanted so the shave will be easier. And backspacing, I'm not sure. I'll have to double check. I was expecting to be wider, but I may get some new rims and tires when these wear out.

And yes doorjamm, we are in nor Cal. Agitatedpancake is in sac and w2001j and I are in grass valley. Takes about an hour to get to Greg's (AP) shop.

There are 2 more guys that I talk to on here that are from Folsom. Both with white wj's. One has 6.5" lift and another with 4".

When mine is done, and david (w2001j) gets his **** finished, I'm trying to plan out a fordyce trip late may if the weather is decent. Also with a few buddies with toyotas.

Also going on a Rubicon trip late July.
