Well, today I added the tires. Over the last few months, I have been buying lift parts kinda piece by piece and bolting them on as I could (gotta love livin on a budget). And busy fabricating some of the simpler parts that I need for this size of tire when I have had time. I can't wheel it for a few more days, I have to see how much bumpstop I need after the fender chop, and fabricate them.

Going for minimum lift with maximum tires. Keep the COG as low as possible. =2.5" suspension lift, 1" body. Gonna take a lot of trimming now so the 37s don't rub when fully flexed. If I didn't take it crawling, the lift would be just fine for the street. Only thing that rubbed was the front air dam, so I ripped that off this morning.
