Looks good. If you kept what you cut off the front flares, you can make a closure to cover the gap between the front inner finder liner and the sheet metal.

Did you do new driveshafts with the RK kit and the body lift? I am about to do the same type of setup and am unsure if the stockers will be okay for a while. Looks awesome.

Your stock driveshafts will be fine to run for a while. If you're a 2door auto you may want to look into shafts though.

I'm 2 door 6 speed. What does a while transfer to exactly? 10k miles? 30k? I've heard both numbers. Lol Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the comments.
And yes i changed the drive shaft i had no issue with it rubbing i put the teraflex exhaust spacers and shimmed the skid down a little bit was fine the issue with the 2012s the motor is tilted back so much the boot gets pinched where the drive shaft comes out of the transfer case. I ordered one before i had a problem. I learned from my 09 with a 2.5 lift jku auto ripped the front boot on the tranny.

Rig looks great!

How do you like the 4.10 gears and the 37s.

Nice flex! Keep in mind even with the rubi sway bar disco, we recommend disconecting the sway bar links at the axle because you can have it flip your sway bar right around and you will bend the link pin.
