Noted! That rig can go anywhere your willing to take it. Not a lot you can do with it for after market applications but I'm sure there are lift kits even if its just up to 4in that would allow you to get 33in tires under it. At that point you can atleast trail ride 1's-3's.

I actually have a 2 inch lift on it now. Planning on moving up to a 3 inch by the end of the year. She already has 32's with the 3.7L and 3.07 gearing she takes her time.. haha

Rig is coming along nicely. I'm getting back on my CJ7 build that had some redneck engineering like yours. I just got a new frame instead of trying to fix the old owners "fixes". I'm wanting to go full width also but no stretch. How is the BTF full width kit?

Thanks for the support! Let me know when you start a build thread and any suggestions I have along the way I can always help! The BTF Kits went in without a lot of hassel. We added strengthening in areas we though might need it but in most cases it was over kill. We will see how it holds up when I go to 42's in the next two weeks! Excited!

Well the All Breeds Jeep Show was a complete success! I sold eveything I brought other than my stubby drive shaft and a set of rims! We were able to really make some great connections for the club and expand on our No Profit "4 Wheel to Heal" Charity!!! Should be picking my set of 42in Iroks in the next two weeks before vacation. I can't wait to see these HUGE tires on the Tank Killer!
