    Finally got the trim package on yesterday. :D 885's, 5100s@ 0, 13mm(1/2") OME spacers. Then, went playing last night to test it out. Only rubbed a few times, but WAY less than before with just the 885's. Maybe an alignment will cure the rest of the rubbing.

    After

    Also, while doing the install, I noticed my sway bar had been rubbing the shit out of my 5100 on the driver side only. So, I went ahead and removed the sway bar even though I really didn't want to :(

    Also, I notice my LCA on the passenger side has been rubbed somehow. Idk if the LCa bottomed out(doubt it), or if my tire has been rubbing the LCA. And, idk if it was rubbing it before the spacer or after the spacer.

    Thats an interesting mark on the LCA. Can you turn your wheels and check clearances?

    I turned my wheel all the way to the right, and there is about an inch clearance between my tire and the two spots you see, so I'm pretty sure it's the tire rubbing, but it might have been before I installed the spacers.

    A sway bar relocate kit should fix that problem.

    Yeah. I might leave it off for a while. I couldn't really notice a difference on the road. It was night and day off road though.

    You do get more articulation with it off. I plan on taking mine off too, i want a power wagon electronic sway bar disconnect feature lol. Now that would be badass if the Off Road package came with that.

    idk compared to eibach, but compared to stock they are mucho bueno.

    Definitely. I went through a spot with ease that I'm usually left with two wheels off the ground spinning.

    Do you have aftermarket UCA? If not, how is the alignment?

    Suggested, and required if you want proper alignment. Before, I was running stock UCA's with billies set at 2.5", and the outsides of my tires were getting worn pretty bad.
