The picture of freshlikefruit's Jeep shows a lot of flex with all four tires in contact with the trail. I see a lot of rigs with large tires and very little room to compress the suspension. I'm saying if I only have a dollar to spend I'd rather spend it on the suspension and driveline than on bigger tires while still leaving the door open to go larger later. When I need tires again I'd like to change the fenders, etc. to gain the clearance so I can keep the CG low.

Warranty and customer service won't matter if your equipment fails during a zombie attack.
Torture numbers long enough and they'll tell you what you want to hear.

Personally, if I had five grand to spend on my own rig right now, I'd call ECGS and get an 8.8 and hpd30 built. I'm saving towards axles right now and I wish I had done them earlier.
