Those look tough with no flare! Have you considered just the "rock rail" like I run? A little more coverage, but not wing looking like the others. Get going on that rear shock outboard!

I might look into that but I will have to modify the fenders to allow the rock rail since Mike cut off the lower mount point for his rock sliders. I need to purchase a welder before I can start

Making up a lower mount won't be hard, but yeah gotta get the welder! Learn from me and get a 220v right away if you have the power outlet, and if you don't, get a 110/220v combo! Cause eventually you'll need the 220!

Ya the lack of a 220 outlet has me thinking the combo would be the way to go its just sometime before I'll save up enough since I'm still doing the home remodel. Silly me for thinking I could budget two projects

That was my other option. I'm tied between getting the 140 or 210MVP. Lots of people use the 140 and it works well for them but most upgrade in time to something with a 220 use. So my thoughts are to just go with the 210 from the start but the 140 is half the price......its a tough decision when money comes into play

If I wasnt currently working on my house I would go with the 210 MVP and call it a day.

What are you re-gearing to? I wish I had gone with 4.88's instead of 4.56, but I don't think I'll have the same axles even I go to 35's and definitely not if I go to 37's so I'll probably end up getting 5.13 or taller. Depending on how I'm feeling lol.
