Man, that thing looks sweet! ive got those same axles sitting in my building already built just waiting on a few small parts like u joints and wheels. do you have a pic from the front? and how you ran your rear brake lines?? and what width wheels are those and what backspacing? what pitman arm did you use? also i have those same tires aswell. I really like it and am considering rock rings aswell, only i cant weld as good as you so ill probably grind mine smooth. anyways Great build man!!! Oh, have you taken it down the rd yet? does she ride smooth with the tires?

I haven't ran the brake lines yet. The wheels are 16.5 x 9.75 with 4.5" backspacing. Stock pitman arm, just drilled out the taper. I haven't driven it yet. Still need to get brake lines, install the SYE, add a leaf from my extra springs, cut the driveshafts down. Once I can move it I'll throw it on the trailer and take it to work and flex it out to measure for shocks. I was going to build my own shock hoops but I like the MORE setup and since they're pretty cheap I might just go that route. If only I had more time and money!

Here's a picture of the front

Will do. The plan is for inner air locks once funds allow it.

Yeah factory front shaft. I need to cut it down just a little bit, we'll see how far once I get the extra leaf in there.

It's not that close. I have turned it to full lock both ways with no problems.

It barely fits at ride height, I have to have it all the way collapsed and even then I have to spin it just right to even get it to sit in the yoke.

Not nearly as much as I wanted, but I did get some pictures of the steering for you.





Also pulled the transfer case



and almost finished the SYE kit before I ran out of time, hopefully sometime this week I'll be able to finish it up so I can put the transfer case back in.

Looks great man! Did you have any issues with the tie rod contacting the diff cover in that position? Im running my tie rod just like you and I know with my SOLID diff cover I had to adjust my steering stops out a little to keep it from contacting the cover. Looks really good btw!
