    Can any of yall who have this combo please post a few pics to show me what I'm going to get. My first gen k5 is going to take this route....i think. I would just like to see what i'm going to get. From what i've read, 33's fit with no problem, 35's with a little trimming right? Thanks in advance.

    this pic here is with about 4" in front (using 52" springs) and 5.5" (or so, shackle flip, zero rate and revolvers) in back...

    I know it looks like the front sits higher than the back in that pic... but its just the perspective, the back sits atleast 1" higher.

    Mine came drilled and an NMO mount installed ( near flush mount threads ) I just bought an adapter for a regular antenna at Radio Shack .

    Yes it does leak if I don't put silicone on it every summer ( AZ heat cooks silicone ) , but it is minute , like maybe a real hard rain fills the dome light cover a 1/4 way ( holes above dome light ) , pop cover drain water , and I'm good :D

    6" in rear and 4" in front, buying a set of 6" fronts to level it out, I think it looks kinda funny... :crazy:
