    I have 6" suspension, 2" body, and not enough fender trimming(yet).

    I'm not done with the cross over steering or the front axle install. I can atleast say the doubler will be done this week.

    Justin, come check out our forum on details about the next meeting. Everyone's welcome (except Larry).

    Im about to go to 42" TSL's too and was checking out the hummer rims. Is that the stock back spaceing and offset or did you get coustom centers? Do the 42's rub the springs when you turn? Did you move your axle foward? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    The stock backspacing is about 7 inches for stock hummer wheels. I had them recentered to 3.5 inches. I haven't been able to drive it yet, so I can't answer the rubbing question.

    And Esteban is just jelous.
