About 3 or so inches of poke

just got a chance to look at the stretch looks damn good man! I agree they ride alot better. You dont see many shocks in the rear mounted that way but whould allow more travel as there closer to he center of the axle i suppose.

Got out fine. But I think I got water in the fuel tank. It ran fine for a minute after I got out. Then stalled and wouldn't start. Got towed to the stealership closest to the park

Waiting on injectors as they are on back order. The mechanic will be doing a compression test when he has the injectors and plugs out.

Also been on the look out for some half doors. If anyone has an idea where to buy it'd be sweet
