Any more pics or description of this routing? I'm planning on getting my cb set up tonight and I'm putting my mount in the same location.

The mounting plate provides enough gap at the bottom of the taillight to run the coax thru. It will make more sense to you once you remove the tail light housing. The hole for the factory wiring is big enough to route it thru.

Do you have any better pictures of the rear shocks? Especially mounts? I am looking into these and wanted to see if they hit on anything in the stock rear.

What exactly to you want to see? I have these shots. If there is something more specific you want to know I can take some more pics.

That is it. I thought you were running some other shocks for some reason.

Thanks! The STT's are a great tire. They track nice, good in rocks, sand, mud, snow, and rain, and I've had them in all these conditions. My only complaint, and I think it's a given for running a mud terrain, is they are noisy on the freeway. They are noisier than my BFG KM's were. In all honesty, the STT's were my second choice. I was going to go with Goodyear MTR's, but at the time Goodyear had that size on backorder for ever, and I gave up waiting.

As far as 32's with my 3.73's, it is managable, but I do have to kick down into 4th when hitting any kind of grade. Offroad, I have no issues. 4.10's would be perfect IMO. I'll have some more wheeling pics up next week. Going on a big run this Saturday to put er thru it's paces!

Had a great run this weekend. Good turn out. Trails were pinstripy, but fun. Really need to do something about that damn shovel!

I'm gonna be stuck with these 32's for the forseeable future, so I want to focus on doing a TT in the short term. Question, can I adjust the rear pinion angle if I only have rear adjustable lower CA's? I know it's not ideal, but with funds being tight and needed to still purchase an SYE/DCDS, plus the skid I may not be able to get the rear uppers yet.

Looked like a great turnout for the trip and a good time!

As for the pinion angle... With how little you actually lengthen the upper arms to rotate the pinion, I bet shortening the lowers would work for the time being, till you can spring for uppers, but it will effectively shorten your wheelbase slightly. Also with 32's you shouldn't see any rubbage issues I'm guessing.

Ok, thanks. Now I just need to decide which skid to go with.

I wish I could wheel in CA!

Id get uppers rather then the lowers. Itll be alot easier to adjust pinion with the adjustable uppers.

What skids are you currently considering?

Yeah, I should probably just be patient and save up for the uppers. Unfortunately that's $250 I could be spending on a SYE. I need to plant another money tree, lol! Savvy's UA is way out of my $$$ ball park, so I'm considering UCF or Rokmen.

You already have lowers right? If not def get the uppers first. Obv not ideal to be adjusting the pinion with the lowers, but I bet it would work ok.
