Thanks man!

Your beast should be about ready right?

Do you ever make it up to Superlift in Arkansas or is that still a pretty good haul

It is.... except for the little sh*t. I might post the list in my build later today. I am just about itching since it has been so long and I am getting sit of doing all the little stuff without some seat time. I might go somewhere local this weekend to see what bugs fall loose and for motivation. Superlift is about 6 hours north but it is on the short list of places to go to asap.

EDIT: How close is superlift to you? Meet there one weekend?

Good luck on your shake down run

Sounds good.

Got my Beard seats in yesterday, and ordered the Poly seat mounts. The 42 inch Corbeau bench that was thrown in on the seat deal is pretty snug. Hopefully I don't have to clearance the tub to fit it in back

Welp.... Finished welding the rear Antirock on. Having some major clearance problems with the tires.

Should I try to flatten out the AR arms, see if currie will swap them for straight arms, or get wheel spacers (last choice)

Any suggestions on flattening out the arms?

I'd probably try to get some straight arms. But first I might throw it in a vice and see if I could just take some of the angle out.... without completely flattening it. Just to get enough tire clearance.

You need to angle the arms up higher so they don't rub
