Still stock 4.10's.....which is another reason 35's would be costly....to do correctly anyway.

It's your trans that wants the 513s right? Auto trans 42rle wants deeper gears, blame it in the car after you get 35s

Did you upgrade the hardware with the rear flares or reuse stock junk? I love the looks of the flares. I think the rears might need some massaging. They are suppose to come up flush with the corners.

Yep, the 42rle blows, so bigger shoes will be deeper gears and more money spent....that's why things will stay the way they are for quite awhile.

I ditched the stock hardware when I put the corners on, so the hardware that came with the Xenon's never left the bag.

I know they don't quite line up with the rear corner, but it's fine the way it is. Going from flush with the body to flush with the corner pushes the flare out a bit, which actually makes the gap on the top of the flare look worse than it would be if it flush all the way, say with a full corner.

Hopefully I'll be able to hit some trails in late July early August and stop looking at this things and start using it again.

I want my sliders back!

I need to sell some stock front fenders w/flares and some rear flares, maybe then I could buy something else....I don't know what, but something.

The sliders will tie it all together. Looking good Jeff! The stance looks level too, bonus! I've been fighting with mine to get the arse end level!

Still looks like a Toy in pictures. Guess cause its so bright. And you keep it so clean.

That's not a bad thing...

I know, I can't wait till they are done. The 1" Rokmen spacer seemed to level it pretty well.

The toy look is the dof I shoot with....very shallow.

It really isn't all that clean...especially since being caught in the rain topless....the yellow helps.
