Yeah, they bolt onto the knuckle and use a new tie rod and drag link. I lost all leverage in my steering and overheated two ps pumps and when I brought it to they're attention they told me to add a hydro assist and offered no further help so in my opinion there products are garbage.

I learned my lesson the hard way. They even claimed it would work well with 35's, the second go around I didn't try to cheap out on high steer and did it right.

It sucks to learn the hard way, but now I know to stay away from that kit. I was considering it a while ago.

My air intake came in today. It will move the filter over to the passenger side to get it away from the heat on the driver side. Plus the setup that Hesco supplies is just plain ugly and has been bothering me for a while. No pics until I install it.

I thought so too, and now it should take in a little cooler air too.

Still lookin good as usual!

What's your opinion of the spyderlocks? I love their design but, Ive heard that they are heavy, however, after some research it seems that just about all bead locks are in the same weight range

Thanks, I still love the spyderlocks even with some rock rash. Your research is correct they are way less than a steel beadlock but any beadlock is going to have some weight to it even if it is aluminum.
