Are there laws where you live about fenders or about the flairs? I ask only because the metalcloak fenders have options for 4 or 6 inch flairs. But for the fenders and flairs it is pricy.
I live in MI, but travel to MN where they require full tire width coverage. So I think as long as I could flare it wide enough I'm good. I'm really only there for 2 weeks out of the year but don't need the attention from the fuzz.

Gotcha' .

But when you can I would highly suggest Metalcloaks because you can fit 37s under there with only 3 inches of lift.

Uncle Wilson: When you get this one decided on in its entirety, post it up. I'm in this process as well so all this is great info for me. I thought anything under 4 inches was considered LCG myself, but hey, what do I know?

I was under the impression that if your vehicle met requirements in the state in which it was registered that you were OK to travel through other states where rules might differ. For instance, I live in the NYC area. I happen to live in NY which has no tire coverage rules, but yet I drive often to places in NJ where I am told they can be pretty picky for vehicles registered there.

I'm about to start my LCG build. Right now all I have planned is 53" military goodyears, 52" short arm lift, skyjacker skid loweing kit, and a locked dana 35. Am I going to need a drop pitman arm with this? Also, don't worry guys, I've decided to keep the 3" body lift!

no. what you will need is a regear. you will need at least 3.07s.

back on topic though, i have kept my mouth shut just because you seem to have everything thought out just fine already.

Mail crawling.

Very interesting. I might have to call the DMV and check it out.

no, you're wrong. the JKS bar (#126) doesn't clear the stock cover either with N66 shocks...needs 2" of bumpstop IIRC.
