    Ha no need, the 33s already take care of that.
    I'd have em too if I could afford them and a regear. :(

    Gonna adjust them up some more only turned the collar about 1/4" to level it with the AAL at the moment. Rides 1000x Better then the spacers, But the real ride quality was effected by the BL. Sway Bar has been removed. Body sits lower but frame is same height as before.

    Lookin good man, you sure it wasn't the coils that made it ride better?

    How does it feel to have a full length J-shifter now?

    It definitely rides way better offroad with the coils haha but even when I had just the BL off it rode way better. These things just absorb bumps off road
