    Do you have some pics of the crossover itself?
    If you used zerorates to move the axle forwards, did you have any problem with the draglink hitting the right spring?

    I dont have any pics of that but I can get them later. I redrilled the spring perches to move it forward. I didnt want any more lift. I have plenty of clearance on the spring for the draglink. In fact the hi steer will end up going even futher out and should be fine from what I can see.

    That is a 6" suspension and a 3" body with the fender trimming. I can stuff that tire way up in there and it seems to clear everything. Looks like I could do that even with 42's but it would be close. the rears are on backward because I was short on time and didnt pay attention when I put them on. I'm thinking about running all 4 boggers in Moab this spring. I'm not sure though. It handles much better with the TSL's in the front. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
