    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

    Price will be around $4-4500 for upper arms, lower arms, spindles, heimed steering, and all necessary parts (minus shocks and glass)

    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.

    Looking forward to the test run videos. Way to put worth the effort and design that 4wd spindle.

    Do those spindles add any sort of lift? Is that even possible with 4wd spindles?

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