    I might sell my stock spindles if the price is right
    they are non-ABS spindles with total chaos gusset, tig welded by local welding shop (certified welding)

    The back side is fully welded and he said that was adequate cause welding the front fully would cause warpage

    Added some icon add a leafs, truck sits level at the moment but i need to crank the coilovers to gain some up travel upfront.

    Oh, and looking for options on where/how i can mount a full size spare. Ill just throw it in the bed if needed but hoping for some others ideas (if they exist)

    ill throw some pics of the new ride height after its adjusted, aligned, and washed

    Nice video. Got some decent jumps especially for mid travel. When you put the bushwackers back on, did you cut the top of the stock fender at all in the front? I have bushwackers and only 33's and they rub pretty bad at full flex. I was thinking of taking them off and mounting them higher up on the fender. Just seeing if that's what you did.

    Edit: Looks like you cut 3 in. off the stock fenders. Did you cut the bushwackers at all? Haha sorry so many questions.

    One thing, I lost the lower mount (wher the fender bolts up under the door) on the flare to i could turn lock to lock, so if u can pull the shock and cycle your suspension so you have adequate clearance. Im going to trim more off my bedsides because my tire decided to become good friends with it and the bedside has a nice bend in it under the flare

    Cool ya I'm going to cycle it for sure. I should be okay because I only have 33's but we'll see. Ya my tire tries to rip off the fender in the rear when it flexes too much. Makes a horrible sound haha

    I like it a lot! Why not keep the cut down bumper on? I would think it'd look super clean.

    If your referring to the stock bumper, it's cause I drilled holes through it for my offroad lights and old turn signals

    Took a trip up saddleback mountain friday night.
    All went well till the bolts holding the driveshaft sheared/fell off only found one it looked more like a nail and less like a bolt.
    Put a hole in my fuel tank and did this...

    Did get one decent picture on the peak though
