Jeep looks so much better now, so when can we expect wheeling pics?

Thanks!

There is a cross member right below the front drive shaft and you have to cut out a chunk to get it to fit after the whole diff is lowered. Theres a piece that gets welded in to fit the whole. On the diff, theres a bracket that gets put on and i had to slice off a tab to get it to fit right. Also there was another ear on the diff that i cut off the get the new superlift skid plate to fit. None of it has anything to do with driving or anything, just clearance.

Also, for trimming, i do have to bend over the pinch weld in the front cus its rubbing. But that shouldnt take to long

Yeah, I'm looking to hopefully make it through the winters as well with the one set and they had the best snow and ice and overall ratings for a mud tires according to JP magazine (that was with the old MTR though).
