One of these days when I have the time to make the trip, I'm gonna go see Blaine and let him take a look at mine and get some recommendations. I really like all the shock mounts and have been wanting to 4 link mine anyway.

Thanks for posting the pics and the reply..

The fabrication on mine was finished just before Thanksgiving and its been in the dirt once. The Savvy armor also covers up quite a bit of previous damage. Post up that other pic you have before you went to the 37's

Well, i finally made it to the end. Amazing work! I love how so many things were "recycled" to keep it affordable. I do have a couple questions though. Is the front diff cover custom? It appears that the upper portion is stock at the least. Also, have you had any issues hanging up on the body mounts now that they are raised? Im guessing there's not much chance to hit them now between the sliders and the frame.

The front and rear diff covers are from Barnett:

The hold up nicely and also provide good clearance for steering linkages and the trackbar.

Can't comment on the raised mounts as I have not wheeled anywhere yet that they would be tested. I can say my factory mounts were pretty trashed so I expect improvement now that these are 1" higher.

Thanx for the compliments.
