i have 4.88's with 37's and they push them nice. when i had my 35's it was very easy to spin them on the road, and offroad is just awesome with both tires. hope that might help a decision.

I think that the instructions were a bit confusing and it made a lot more sense when I just looked at it and put things where they made sense. Also the top doesnt work unless you have the plastic door surrounds which I did not. So I bought some off of ebay with the top still on and stuff blankets in the gaps until they showed up. I couldn't get the knobs into the door surrounds without taking the top completely off but it worked out. I'll just put them in whenever I take the top off next time. Other than that just make sure its warm outside when you do it so the fabric can stretch. It's not hard at all really, especially if you already have door surrounds.

Nice, not sure being you have an ax-15 tranny and me having a nv3550 would make any difference. But, I am pretty sure I'm going with 4.88s.

Yesterday I received my Corbeau LG1 seats and my jks 1'' motor mount lift. Hopefully today I'll be receiving the rest of my order, Currectlync HD, JKS 1.25'' Body Lift, IPF H4 Headlights and Fatboy Lenses, Riddler Covers for both diffs. Fingers crossed. Pics when I get home for you that are anxiously waiting...

Okay..got the Currectlync on. I am by no means a super mechanic but that was a PITA to install for me. Maybe I am just dumb, but I do know those are some damn stubborn cottor pins. If anyone has installed it before you know what I mean. And then my grease gun stopped working when I needed to fill the bushings. But, I am glad I was replacing my tie rod, all the bushings that I had greased when I installed my Rusty's HD Tie Rod about a year ago were done. All of the backs of the bushings were no longer there, so there was no more grease in the TRE's. Not sure if anyone has had any issues with Rusty's Tie Rods. But once I get home today I am going to get more grease and get pics of it all done.

Still have yet to get pics of the steering, but it drives so much better. I can't recommend enough the currie steering setup. I just go smoothly over things that used to give me dw. But I am sure that the bushings going out on my old tie rod. Ill also maybe get some sneak pics of the seats that I hope to put in soon and I may put in my new headlights tonight depending on how tired I am and what I need to do at the house.

Well I think I tightened my steering too much..It called for 55ft-lbs and I'm pretty sure I went way over that. Now I have to deal with those stupid cotter pins again and regrease the bushings....*facepalm*

Hey angry yeah I got it handled. The steering wasn't tightened too much. I just really needed to do my front end alignment. It was really off. But I only get slight vibes every so often now. I think its my tires being unbalanced. I really want some aluminum rims like WE's or some Racelines

For all my loyal readers, of which there are plenty as you can tell, you guys get a heads up. I am going to list my RC LA 6in X-Series Suspension for sale and my tires and rims soon. PM me if interested they only have 4kish miles on both the suspension and tire/wheel package.
