I just noticed the little light inside the front fender above the tire. Very cool!!! Any details on that?

I ran into the same issue with my front 3 link. Spacers solved the problem.

Agree. I was lucky and only needed 1.25" spacers.

Jeep turned out great! I run 1.5" spacers on my 8.8 to clear the coilovers and the tires still rub a touch when aired down. How bad are you getting into the coilovers? Got another question what did you end up running for spring rates?

Really bad!!!

150/250, but that still might change to lighter spring?

See how it is you may want togo lighter I was 175/250 and just swapped to 175/175 and the ride is noticably better. Can you just move the lower mount in on the axle some how close is the coil to the upper mount at full droop? Or it also looks like 1.5" spacer would probably do the trick. What do you have from the outside framerail to the inside buldge of the tire so I can compare it to mine for you.

If I move the lower mount in to the diff then the shock goes passed vertical at full droop.

At the time of the photo I already had a 2" spacer on the axle.

Inner tire to frame is 5"

Dumb question...can you pull your hoops in to get rid of that rub? The angle will make them slightly softer too.

The rear hoops? No, beside I would weaken them. I'm building 60's, just bought a front tonight.

Yeah I've also got 5" with an 8.8 and 1.5" spacer. Your backspacing may be the difference in needing 3" spacers to clear.
I run 12" shocks so its prob more of an issue with the 14's. You gonna try to find an e350 60 for the back?

I really haven't sat down and added it all up, but I did need to get a larger box for all the receipts

That's one of the reason's I'm building my own 60's, in fact I got the front axle last night. It was out of a 87 F350 SRW HP KP Drivers, in really good condition, king pins look almost new. Cali truck for sure!

So far I have;

Rear Wilwood brake calipers
All new axle brackets and bridge from GenRight
New 39" BFG Krawlers (red label)

Still need,

ARB lockers
Front inner and outer axle shafts
Drive flanges
New 8 lug Beadlocks wheels
Chevy F & R brake rotors

Seem like I've been down this road before.........................
