I actually like it with those, but I am a fan of the old school look

I like the os rims to but i have about an 8th of an inch from my tire to the HS arms and TRE's. I think if i air down they will hit. I guess i could run a spacer in the front but i dont really want to.

Brimmy's rims are pretty fly.

It's looking really good, Rob. Nice work. If I don't talk to you before then, have a great Christmas, too.

bump for some attention whore action.

tell me how you think my axles will hold up, tell me i spent too much money on my axles (around 1000$ for rear d44 and front wt d30 HS).

tell me how much space i should have between my HS arm and my tire.

any criticizm is good, I am new, its my first non stock build and I would like some feed back.

I am also thinking of putting a stencil of the Quake3 symbol on the hood, dorky - probably.

good question, i dont know, there is no stamping and i got them from dave from Cascade 4wd. I will see if i can the name from him.

I noticed someone elses HS arms and theirs bent in whereas mine are straight now potentially causing problems with me running stock rims.

That is what I was thinking they look like they point straight forward where some angle in as they go out.

Yea i am kinda screwed now really...

1.) get new arms 150$
re drilled for tre's 25-50$ = 200$

2.) get new rims with proper backspacing = 3 to 400$? dollers plus mounting etc.

1 and 2 = lame in my book.

Looking good Rob. We'll have to get a group together and go wheeling soon. Of course I still have some stuff to get done on mine, and Joel, well still needs a motor...

Spacer could still be an option for the front. I'm not sure the cost but I have to imagine it's cheaper than rims..
