Spacers aren't coming for a bit. I want to have extended swaybar links and an adjustable tracbar in hand before I add those. Those UCAs are my first priority. Check out BoraBora's build thread. He has spacers in the rear.

Installed my Suoerchips programmer. Opens up that HEMI unbelievably. Just ordered a BT catch can and I'm gonna try and get the TB cleaned tomorrow

Looks good man.

Look forward to seeing updated pictures when you get the rear back higher than the front.

What PSI are your Duratracs at? I haven't checked since they were mounted and was wondering what others running this tire like/reccomend.

At 40 right now. I need to do a chalk test to find out if they are wearing evenly

Did you notice a drop in fuel economy after the Superchips? I have an 07 Overland I want to start modding and would like to start with some performance gains.

Got new UCAs and front swaybar links replaced today. Went with RRO control arms and OEM sway links. No more sqeaking and no more creaking.

After the above, my front end still sounds like a creaking sound from an old mans rocking chair. It usually happens when I'm coming to a stop or going over a dip. Any ideas?
