Chris, glad to see you are posting your build on here bud! Jeep is looking awesome. You think you will make a big dogs run this year to break in the new setup?

I have seen some of Chris' work first hand and it is top notch to say the least Keep up the good work!

Hell yeah man! THat thing looks solid... I would want a stubby though, and more along the lines of your with a comp stinger. Full width with no fender flares would probably look kinda funny.
