TIRES ARE ON!!! TIRES ARE ON!!!

I'm having slight rub on the passenger side pinch weld (even after mod) and moderate rub on the driver's side. I guess I'll just have to bring Mr. BFH back to the scene once again and really flatten out that ****ing pw this time. Any one got any more tips for this? I think I need like 1/4 of an inch more clearance.

Might not be everyone's cup of tea but I LOVE IT!!

Teaser pics. Sorry for the crappy quality of the last one but it was taken in the parking building at work today which has the worst light ever. Promise I'll get a proper photo shoot as soon as possible.

Thanks guise! I promise I'll upload some trail pics by Sunday. I reckon she might not be as trail capable right off the bat now as it would've been with a 32" tire. I guess I'll have to do the extended bump stops in the back and wait for Lifted_Up and Omelet to be done with their Modded OME lift so I can just reap what they sowed. Or just man up and get the SL.

WK-916: No spacers. Wheels are 17x9 4.75" backspacing, -6mm offset. Perhaps the tires stick out 1" more than I would've liked but it's a small price to pay for the tire/wheel combo I fell in love with.

looks sick man, I used hockey pucks for bump stop extensions, they work great and only $6. Just drill a hole through the middle and get a longer bolt

Thanks brother! Just checked out those XD's and they look good, but yes. You should consider the Procomps, these babies are beefy!

Both are excellent choices anyway...

Thanks! I'll have to look into that option. I might need to stack a couple of them on each side though...

Thank you as well, AJ!!

Input and Output speed sensors are exactly the same. P/N 4799061AB for 545RFE trans. Under $40 a piece and like I said 10 minute job. Just remember to let the trans cool down first. You might need to top off the fluid if you let a lot of it drain out.
