I used the RC rear track bar bracket. I didnt do anything to the front. It drives fine.

Thank you for the reply. Your lift is bigger than mine also.It looks like the front tires are pretty straight to me.

Well, the upgrades continue.

Installed the Pre-runner guard on my Rugged Ridge bumper on my lunch break the other day. After work I installed the Rancho Oil pan skid plate. That thing is stuck on there good, easy install for both.











I am very happy with both products so far. The prerunner guard is heavier than hell and I ended up adding about 250 pounds in all including the bumper, guard and winch. I may have to add a larger spacer up front to compensate but I will prob wait till I upgrade tire sizes.

I thought I would do a quick update on how the mods are holding up. I went wheeling with my club at Rock Run in Western PA last weekend and put all the new mods to the test. The winch did great, needed it on three occaisions, the prerunner guard did a great job of protecting my fenders and winch from damage and the oil pan skid plate took a couple of good hits, two spots the metal is gouged out good and it held up great and is still stuck to the oil pan. The lift performed well and gave me very good articulation. I did blow a tire so I will be in market to get a better and larger tires that will perform better in the rocks.

here r some pics:

Got a new update for the build thread. I just put on 34 inch (305/70-17) Good year MTRs. I am very happy with them. They fit the wheel well nice, they fit on my stock carrier without a problem and they seem fine with 3.21gears with 6 speed. I actually think that the white letters look fine with the black rims.
