    Mine are in the mail right now! My 36's rub the floorboard/firewall at full stuff. I was hoping the zero rates would cure this. How much did you offset? I want to go to 38's.

    Does anyone have experience using the ZRAAL to move the front axle forward while still using the stock steering setup?

    I think I need a set too... what did you pay for them? And I see your u-bolts over again... I think I could too, since there is about 2" extra over the plates right now... /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Someone has misinformed you bud! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif I am 25 yrs old, have one full time job, my wife and four (YES, that's four) kids stay at home in my house (which I pay a mortgage on) that I rarely ever see 'cause I'm workin' all the damn time for pennies. And I have too much money??? Yikes...

    Only somehow do I manage to grab a few cents from the wife now and then for truck stuff! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif I consider myself very lucky to have a hobby like this one that cost me over 14k last year... and that was with absolutely no trips. This year I expect Moab to cost about $1200! Sheesh...

    Thanks for the kudos on the webshots, and on the truck BILLY RAY! Yea, the truck is coming along very nicely... now I just need to get it out of the driveway and into the mud! I swear, I've had the darn thing broke more time than I've had it on the road! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif But I guess that is the nature of the beast! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Thanks again BILLY RAY! BTW - you ever get that keyboard of yours fixed yet? (caps lock problem) If not, can I send you one for free?

    Quick Question about Zero rates. If you choose to move your axle (either 1" or 1.5") the way Stephen describes on ORD, it seems that you shifted the weight 1-1.5" off center of your axle. I guess that's not a big deal since the springs are virtually flat at that point anyway (thinking out loud again). But any Thoughts?
