Iím getting the impression that Andrew doesnít like our feedback?
I would like to suggest the heart beat of America from the 80ís corvettes or possibly something that says Miami vise.
Both will work with the teal colored springs.
Tint looks good. Canít wait to see it in person.
That sounds amazing.

The tint looks quite stealthy. Beastie needs some mud on it.  Too clean.  :twocents:

Very nice. Carful with that e-brake cable when you are wheeling, it sits so low it wants to grab everything. I cut the mounting tabs off the axle and welded them back on about a inch or two Higher. That helped a ton

Running stock arms in the front. Short of a 3 link there isn't really an upgrade. They do very well.

Looking good! I canít wait to see this thing in action.
We need to plan a test run soon so the pressure gets turned up a notch on us. I know I work better when I have a goal. You, mark, Travis, and I are all going to need the bugs shook out of our new updated rigs.

I would have thought longer arms might have been an option to maintain the axle location at the new ride height.

Looks good.  Any pictures of the wheel in the tire without the ring on?

Is it setup for a tow bar on the front?

EDIT: The reason I ask is the mounts sticking out of the front bumper appear to protrude quite a bit and could be spaced about right for a tow bar mount.

Drop brackets for the frame side mount for the arms is what you are talking about.
