    3 weekends? So at some point you were driving around with a huge hole in your fenders? Lol.

    The first side took 2 weekends, a whole day of cutting, a day of welding the firewall back. And then the next weekend a day of welding the inner fender (so yeah there was a week with that huge hole). And then we had a better feel for what we were doing and knocked out the other side in one weekend

    I have the kit for my 2nd gen along with the axles UCAs and spindles with double sheer steering. So what has been mentioned about moving the contact point forward is true but it's only moving 1/2 the equation. The other thing it does is correct caster throughout the travel of the suspension due to the 23* antidive of the UCA so on droop you aren't going to be into 0-negative caster. He does admit to having to trim other areas and points to those areas as well as set bump right. there is mention of a inner fender assembly as well as there has been discussion of cutting the inner fender to take full advantage of the bump. Like all things your tire and wheel selection will play a factor in where and how bad you hit things. I think the biggest point should be made that unless you are making a pavement princess you are and should expect lots of cutting and modification to allow full range and use of the travel of the front suspension

    Did you install it already? One thing I’ve been curious about is the skid plates. Do you need Fully custom skid plates now? Or minimal cutting to fit them?

    I have not installed yet nor did I get their skid plate with mine. I am doing something different. You could modify your current ifs and mid to work with theirs or make your own. It will take some custom work to do so though

    @literallynothing and @In4aride would scoff, but finally did some legit wheeling where my HC bumper and sliders got beat up a little bit and definitely saw the need for 35s+ and front locker.

    Take the spare tire crank off all I heard was that dangling and clanking :rofl:
    Nice run the less built the rig the more challenging and fun some of the easier stuff is!

    Back when I had a bed rack I pulled it out from down there and bolted it to the bottom of that. Fit my 315 spare perfectly on top of my cooler

    Hill climbs are always fun. Videos never capture how steep they really are though.



    This one I'm locked in 4L and flooring it in 1st and just bumbling along. I took the line furthest on the right with all the rocks.

    If you look at the trees where you started and use that as a reference to your vehicle and distance traveled it makes it easier. As in im fairly sure those trees are 150 to 175 ft tall and in less than 200 feet you were well above the tops.

    It's not that hard you can figure it out with a pencil or stick and known distance to a tree
