Thats the custom part. I'm working on a bracket system to relocate the upper link to help with the geometry issues

I like the look of the UCF fenders, but one question, does the fender roll under where it could come in contact with the tire? We had talked about doing something similar looking, but with small square tube so any rubbing wouldn't cut a tire.

Stance looks good! Would you say there is room for 40s? Also what axles are you running?

If I did some trimming 40s would clear. I have a factory 44 rear and a Rubicon 44 for the front.

Ok cool. Im running 35s now with flat fenders and a 2.5" suspension with 1" coil spacers. Looking at going to 3 or 3.5" coils taking out the spacers and running a 1.25 body lift. Probably should run 3.5" coils then?

Plan on running 37s then 40s one day

If you run across another front Rubi44 please let me know. I'd like to upgrade. Also, in the coming weeks/month I might be chatting with you about doing some welding for me - I ordered some Rokmen Highlines. You got any pics of this thing wheeling then?
