Nope, I like the jeep look. Hydro steering, fuel cell and 42's maybe next year. Then unless something breaks, and I know something will, i'll be letting it stay put for a bit.

damn benny you must of cut a shit ton out of your tub for this rear frame section..i had to cut all the back sheetmetal below her rear tailgate,all the side metal.she has more clearence in her rear now. i cut your old hoops off and moved them.didnt want to cut into her tub. that was one heavy duty tailsection you had. was fun prying it with a bar and tacking it at the same time to get it all lined up.i used ratchet straps,a 2x4 and a piece of dom to hold it all in place.

Your tires will rub on the coils when flexing. But I'm glad to see you're making progress.
