Going to get her dirty next weekend! I am not scared to beat on her that's what I built it for! Proof that I have had it dirty this was right before the long arms went in!

Looks good. How bad do the 35x13.50 rub? Also what rims size and BS you running. Would like to run 35s but afraid it will limit my flex to much.

I don't rub at all even when flexed out! (I did trim some of the cladding got rid of the pinch weld in the fender and also cut and folded the lip of the fender! I am running 15x8 wheels (at 25 psi I have a nice wear pattern this way) with 3.75 backspaceing! I am only running 13.50's because toyo does't sell 12.50's and because I work at les schwab and get a killer deal on toyo's!

How are the axles holding up to running the tires? I want to change out mine to 35x13.50 but afraid its to much. Thinking I might just go with 33x13.50 toyos. Also, didn't see on the thread but did you ever do the SYE?
