I have never seen that tummy tuck that you have. Looks like it gives you more clearence then some of the other brands. Also the blue and yellow looks great.

Why did you get rid of the 36" tires? Did they rub very bad?

Did you ever end up upgrading axles, gears, or lockers? I love hearing about what people have done with their axles
Great job though! Love the color combo.

The 33 engineering tummy tuck is not made any more as far as I know, It is custom attached to my skid row oil pan skid and i also raised the oil skid about 1.5"

The 36's did not rub at all with the flat fenders. I got rid of them because the class that I compete in only allows up to a 33" tire and i got a brandy new set of the GY MT/R w/ Kevlar through a sponsorship. I was going to keep both set and run the 36s on the trail, but decided the cash was needed elsewhere!

My front D30 has 4.56 gears(now wish it was 4.88) an Aussie Locker, and Yukon chromoly shafts.

The rear is a swapped in D44 with just the 4.56 gears. At one point i had an aussie in that as well, but again the class I compete in only allows 1 locker, and since I cant shut the Aussie off, I had to remove it. Eventully it will be replaced with something!
