Inspiring! Now that I've decided to go with 35's, your build has peaked my interest! How much bumpstomp did you have to add?

I figured I would try to list some of the few mods I need to do.
1. upgrade steering
2. Replace frt CA's with currie control arms
3. outboard frt and rear shocks 10frt 12 rear
4. level spring perch in rear with outboard
5. build 4 link rear
6. plan out 3 link frt

These dont need to be accomplished at any particular time. I might start after my trip to moab, maybe knock off one and two before the trip.
Why 10" in the front and 12" rear?

Thanks man, glad I could be of some inspiration. I added about 1' or so I used my old TC drop pucks and added them to the upper bumpstop.

Minor work needed for the front for 10's and 12 in the rear to give me the right amount of length before it becomes useless flex. I may go 12's all around. I'll decide that once I start working on my shocks.

Maybe he didnt want to risk having the hole be to big and it never hurts to file it for a bigger hole.

Still a little confused. Fitting rear 12" will require more work than the front, cutting your frame that and moving the lower tabs...

Sorry I left out many key points with the rear. Since I will be working on my suspension with the 4 link it wouldnt hurt to put in some necessary mods ie the spring perch and shock towers. You have got me thinking why not just do the minor work up front with the shock towers as well. I will admit I have my moments of idiocy

Well work is intervening on my weekend again so the regear will have to wait until next weekend.
