    Yeah right, I wish, Nate from Blitzkrieg Motorsports in Irvine is doing all of the dirty work. He's an awesome guy to work with. Those welds would be all boogered up if I had done the work.

    what size tires you going to run? Shocks? Looks like you are aiming for a near stock ride height, nice man.

    35x12.5x15 MTR's on 15x8 (supposed to be Alcoa but they are out until at least mid summer) probably MT Classic II's unless I can find another nice looking Forged rim.

    The front shocks are 16" 2.5 Dual Rate King Coilovers. It should ride a little higher than stock but, yes I am trying to keep it as close as possible.

    I like the radius arm idea. Blueblazer62 has talked about doing it in the rear of his own rig.

    Looks sweet, nice work.

    If you dont mind me asking, what length did you make the arms, and how far appart did you do the axle tube mounts eye-to-eye?

    I'll have to get back to you on that. When it finally comes home I'll be able to get some measurements.

    Yeah, I can't wait to run it. I think the front half of the cage is done, deavers are on in the rear, driveshaft should be done by tomorrow or the next day, back half of the cage should be done hopefully by the end of the week. Hopefully I'll have it back in the next couple of weeks here.
