    Have you cycled it yet? Tie-rod hits the coilover at just over half turn on my friends kit and many of their other kits. I wonder if it got corrected

    I was just teasin' ya' Zach :) most of us have been there...and changed our minds down the road. Kit looks rad ! Doesn't the fab'd spindle add a bit more width or is it just a regular 3.5 axle and a stock 4wd hub ?

    Kit uses TC +3.5 axles and the standard 4x4 hub. The spindle is definitely wider than the stock ones with gussets but I think it is just built into the rest of the kit so the total width is +3.5". According to product thread and others who have installed it, the kit should cycle about 14" with out removing the inner fenders so it is on par with most of the other +3.5" kits

    Nice ! Yeah completely believe it will cycle that much with the " race kit " uniball configuration. Heads up though... although they say you don't have to remove the inner fenders you will definitely have to tub the fire wall a bit and do a small notch toward the front of the inner fender roof/corner just IE just behind the OE air intake hole if you want to cycle that full travel lock to lock. Even with my +2 kit only cycling 11.5" I had to do the aforementioned tubbage and trimmage

    Yeah I figured I would have to mess with things a little. I already have my cab mount cut back pretty far, also have beat the firewall wall back quite a bit to full cycle 34s with my mid travel setup. I am hoping that with the wheel moved forward an inch and pushed out more I won't have to do much in the rear of the fender well, just the top of the inner fender and up front. We will see though. Still have to build my axles so I probably wont get around to cycling suspension till the weekend.

    I believe most are running 1.25-1.5" to clear their shocks. I'm running 2" since I already had them

    Yes
    I run 1 1/4" spacers but only because I need the clearance from my links and CO's. I have been told multiple times that it is better to have the rear end a bit narrower for handling purposes... and right now I am equal width f&r and it feels more twitchy / loose than when the front was wider.

    I'm running 1.25 wider in the front and the handling is pretty solid.
