Next weekend Fun

So I have just recived all of my lift kit and shocks... And today put my tires and rims on order also . I ended up going with the RK 3.5 mid arm Flex system and got Blisten 5100 shocks. Tires are Nitto Mud Grapples 315/75-R16 and rims are Pro comp Rock Crawler series 52 flat black 16x8. Cant wait for them to be in and get to work on my first phase of my build. If anyone has any suggestions or tips for anything it would be greatly appreciated.

Quick question, do I have to wait for the tires or can I do the lift then put on tires when I get them in?

How DO you bolt a lift kit to a dining room table?

Bumpstops?
Brake line relocation for the rear?
Welder for rear trackbar bracket?
Driveshafts? (if you plan on flexing)
You may need wheels because of the backspacing.
Did you get no more that 4.5" backspace wheels ordered?
Other than that have fun!!

looks awsome

In 2009 a crack commando wheelin' unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the South Florida underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as wheelers of fortune. If you have a problem. If no one else can help. And if you can find them. Maybe you can wheel with The 50/50 Off-Road Team.
