Will do!

So after reading a bunch of build thread, I want to join the group of fairly highly modified 35" tire jeeps. Like Hendrix, MO2500, Imped, etc.

Plan this winter is some sort of fuel storage change, either a stretch tank or a fuel cell. And regearing my axles.

Hopefully a BL and MML also to prepare for other mods.

Goal is a flat skid, trans crossmember, 5-6" rear stretch, high clearance arms and some fox 2.0s. Also need to replace these terrible wheels and a cage.

That is all

ya all of them have great builds I'm leaning towards Imped's build with how he did his suspension.

agreed. Although saying you like Imped's suspension is like saying you liked Michael Jackson's nose job. He's gone through a couple versions.

MO2500's build makes me drool the most I think.

I would pick phase 2 after Imped's RK truss was replaced. But I am liking the rear stretch he's currently working on

I hear yah, I really like the way MO2500 did his, but need to look at Imped again.
