    I just finished putting on my new axles, a 60 and 14ff rear locked. I did have to make a little room for the 42's though. Let me know what you think.

    Looks good. I was wondering what lift you have and how much uptravel do you have. I have a 6in. lift with 37s and cut fenders. I would like to go with 38 to 40in. tires next year.

    I have a 4 inch suspension and a 3 inch body. I ran 38 before I did my 42' and never had a problem rubbing. However my suspension is pretty stiff.

    Your clearancing looks really clean. Got any pics from further back? Looks sweet. What are you planning bumper wise?

    Post up some side-profile shots....

    42" is a lot of meat, the cutting would/will have to be severe to make that work.

    ist been raining for days here so once it stops I will get some all around pictures. The trimming wasnt that bad, I love how it tured out. I trimed it to fit with the look of my bumber and as for that I will have it done in a couple of weeks. I'm going to mount a winch on it, It will be a tube bumper with a skid plate. It will look close to this [​IMG]

    I went offroading today and my new stuff performed better than I expected. I only rubbed in 1 spot so my trimming was almost perfect. I did break one thing however. I flexed to much and cracked my top!

    Leave the top off, go to 4wp's and get a Jeep bikini top for 30 bucks and run it from your windsheild frame to your roll bar and your set!

    Im impressed with your rig, was fun riding with ya thomas, i wondered what that crack was when we where going through that last hill-to-ditch....
