    Hitting Uwharrie as soon as I get my lift and tires on. I feel like you do a little hesitant to hit the trails hard before I get my skids at least. Good build thread I think I will start my own.

    Well my 35's should be here next week, then I need to order an axle rebuild kit and rear 4:88's then have them installed, and in the middle of all that find time to bob it, do the rear shock re location etc etc. haha. After that ill be ready to go!

    If you ever need any armor let me know!
