Radius arms tacked together, radius arm mounts mocked up, rear tires on at ride height, love the stance.





I'm really liking the direction this is going.

It's tight, but a little trimming and I'm sure you will be fine. If it were me, I'd cut as little as possible, I like the big tire, low stancelook.

Now to just figure out a way to get nicer pictures

MetroFab™ has no time table. I will have stuff to get done on it after the axles are done. Gotta finish up the motor, run all new brake lines, shocks all the way around as well as do some trimming.
It will be going by summer I hope.

I have to unload some more parts to cover the cost of the upcoming stuff. I'll have to list them Mickey Thompson rims as well as the rims and tires that came on it. I also can sell off one of my winches and get the other up and running.
I also will be unloading all my extra TTB and 8.8 stuff.

Whenever MetroFab gets his stuff done send that thing west and the rest will be handled
