Is it me or does your rear tire seem likes it closer to the center of the jeep. No, worries when you get your adjustable uppers for the rear for the SYE you can push it back some, as long as clearance permits.

Looks good man. You and me can try some of the black trails in July at RC.

your right it does look like its more forward than before. I have the control arms all the way in..pretty much same length as stock, this way the shaft angle is as best as I can get for now.
So i guess the sye and cv will be on the way. And adjustable uppers are next on the list.

Once I get those things all setup I'll be able to lengthen the arms to recenter the axles, right??

As long as you have lower and upper adjustables, you'll be able to push it back out to stock maybe even a little bit farther if you have the clearence.

I hated that thing too.

Looks good man! Although yeah, I don't have the lower adjustables, but your rear does look really close to the front of the fender. There wasn't anything in the instructions as far as how far to thread them out? If anything, they should be .5" longer than stock arms(center to center). I know the rear uppers on mine are somewhere around ~3/4" longer than stock (c2c). I would get adjustable uppers ASAP as well as a new rear track bar. Using the stock one annoys the hell out of me because the axle is so shifted to one side.

Not on this trip. My money is not right. I need a soft top and mirrors.
