Haven't really looked at it flexed up but I know I haven't ever hit it. There is plenty of room. The only issue I could see happening is it hit my tank skid, because it sticks a little past the actual tank. If it ever does hit I'll just trim some out of the skid and it will be fine. I took a pic for ya though of the distance between the two sitting on the ground.

Alright well I sold my axles...kinda. So will be starting up on the axle swap here soon. My dad is the one that ended up buying my axles for his Jeep. He is paying me half and I have to get the other half out of his old axles.. Which is very doable do to the fact that he has the factory Dana 44 and 3.73s. So hopefully will be getting a move on here in the next few months and most likely done before April for the OSCAR trip with Offroadsc.com.

Picked up some 8 lug stuff today.. Will be ordering gears and bearings tomorrow. Hopefully can have all the parts I need by the end of the month and can build and install during the month of march in time for Harlan.

Got some 37s yesterday.. Goodyear Military MTRs. Got them for a decent price with about 95% tread left so I'm happy. Yes they are a little harder then most other off road tires but they'll get me rolling till I can order something better. As for the gears and bearings for the HP44, I was going to order them Tuesday but after some noise in the front end of my truck and a trip to my mechanic turns out I need all 4 new ball joints so that took priority. So have to hold off for a little bit on all of that. However! I should be starting a new job monday, on my 21st birthday , But I should be bringing in a steady pay check again! So I'm extremely excited about it!

Happy Birthday to me!!!!!!! 21st at that!

In other news picked up some humvee locks yesterday.. Since they have a major amount of backspacing.. I am just going to run some spacers till i can either get these re-centered or buy some already re-centered. I think with the large backspacing and the wider axles if i run a spacer I might come out at the same track with I have now with stock axles.. Which i am ok with for the time being.. Really just looking for these to get me rolling without dumping a ton of $$$$ into tires and wheels.

Got my gears and bearings today! Was going to order a spool but a buddy of mine has a Detroit that needs a little work that he's going to sell me cheap. All the work I've had to do on my truck lately has really put a damper on the axles. So I'm going to be cutting it close for having them done before April but hopefully I can get them done.
