    I didn't think I moved the front axle that far forward but it look sliek my bumper can only be as wide as the spring hangers otherwise I'm gonna rub when flexed and turned,LOL

    My bumper sets right at the front spring eye bolt. but I was hopeing to make it a little wider and taper the ends out so it didn't look like a snow plow ( 2" x 8" tube .25 wall)

    who else is rubbing thier bumper??

    we can do the shock kit anyway you want, I would perfer to have them both angle forward, like what I'm doing with mine (I think I showed you the crossmember when ya came down last time) so they angle in and up towards the front.
