You had to get in early, they don't like large groups

Just letting you guys know that I'm about 4 hours from Harlen just incase something happens, not that I think I could help but the offer is there

Take lots of pictures!

The driver, not the rig. Looks good. I'm very interested in that front end set up.

Good luck on the trip Kirby. I might be waiting on your porch to check out the rig when you get home.

That whole front end setup is going to haunt us in our dreams for at least 6 months. If anyone with a TJ stretches their front end, do your self the biggest favor in the world and get Coil overs. Moving all this stuff 4" forward was probably one the hardest things we have done around here.

We are still waiting on the wheels. They should be here today. If they are not, we will be screwed.

If your going full hyrdo to make the stretch easier, go single ended ram.

I think moving the steering box 4" forward would have been easier then packaging this double ended ram... but it sure looks mean in there

I have a set of plain 15x10 black wheels with about 3.5" of backspacing and 5 on 4.5" pattern sitting in the barn that could be used in a pinch if all else fails. No clue what he had on order though. Something with a lot more bling I would hope, such as beadlocks and shiny.

Awesome looking upgrades. I am jealous. You get a bigger lift and cooler Jeep. All Kim is getting is a rebuilt engine after the original blew up at 30k with no warranty. :stan3: on Chrysler.

I was too lazy to go back and look at the pics to see the bolt pattern. That shouldn't be too difficult to find something to borrow at least.
