Thanks everyone. It should work out well

The spindles do not add any to the overall width like a 2wd lift spindle. So its a total 3.5" per side.

The tabs? Or the uniballs? The uniballs are high strength 1in. Same as most kits out, even on some TTs. And Ive had similar tab layouts that ive built on other vehicles with other kits. Itll be all bueno

Not as many pics as i hoped, but I will hopefully have shocks and steering clevis' friday


Kit cycles 14.5 from inner fender to cv bind (will be bumped and strapped right around 14). The shock will be setup to cycle the suspenison up past the inner fender by 2-2.5in so if joel ever decides to remove them, he can run around 16" of travel



There will be some sheetmetal massaging to fit a 35in tire at full bump and crank. We should be able to just roll over the weld seam and that should be the clearance we need.

Yep you are correct. This is the first spindle that uses stock hubs, brakes, speed sensors, and cv joints.
