So I was trying to decide between the First Responder Hi Lift and the normal Hi Lift...ended up going with the xtreme Hi Lift. Should be here Wednesday.

Sweet build so far man! My aunt lives in albany, youll need to travel up north and take a browns camp trip sometime.

What LED light bar is that you got? I was looking at Lifetime LED, pretty cheap for a 50" compared to other name brands.

Is it the ones around 250 bucks? Can you get pictures of it mounted with the brackets?

So I really want the Teraflex Pre Runner kit, but I don't wanna shell out $4000 on it, so I'm thinking for now I get the Rock Krawler 2.5" Max Travel lift. I will also be getting 35" Duratracs soon.

Here's a stock flex picture
