So no rubbing at full lock now? It looks really good. I want to do the same, but I'll probably get grief from the local police.

No rubbing, turning radius is great. Do you think the police near you would even notice it?

I don't think they would even notice that little bit of tire. Maybe it's just where I'm at but there are trucks and jeeps around me without flares and they don't get hassled as far as I know.

My tires stick out quite a bit more than Lu's with the spacers. I have 3.75" BS and the standard TJ flares which cover an inch less than Rubicon flares. I also have no license plate light, no rear bumper, no back up lights, a fuel cell and a cage that obstructs my view through the windshield and have not had problems with LEO driving my jeep anywhere from MoCo to Ocean city a few times. Maybe it's luck or they just don't care that much/have better things to do

Maybe not. I sure would like to get my full steering radius back. Might have to give it a shot. It sure does look better.

So where the pic showing where you moved your lic plate to? I want to mount mine in the center of the spare with an LED 3rd brake light.

Damn, I totally missed that. Is that one of those setups with the LED plate light and/or 3rd brake light?

Paint on the ultimate steering has dried and got the brand new RC xflex lowers and my engine and tcase skid in the mail today. I know RC isnt the highest quality CAs but I got 3 of the 4 pairs used and at a really good price. Figure Ill save some coin on the arms for now and focus on other areas of my build until I make changes to the suspension in the future.
