Nice!

Did you get the AEV Geometry Correction control arm drop brackets with that lift? Noticed your front ca's in photo #2 are almost parallel to the ground.

Yes the control arm drop brackets were installed. It rides great! I didn't know what to expect from the ride, but so far it feels like it rides as good or better than stock

Cool. There's a thread going around about the drop brackets. Just curious how they were working for you.

Congrats!

The front bumper is a smittybilt XRC.

I didn't pay attention to how much the caster changed. Those brackets were the last thing we installed and I was exhausted

Those duratracs make the stock bicycle spare tire look puny. What size tires are they btw?

Yes they make my old stockers look pitiful. They are either 305 or 315/7017. I can't remember exactly now. Basically 34.5"

Ya the next plan is to regear. I just have the stock 3.73 gearing in it now. She won't win any races and my mpg is not going to be great, but I'll be alright with it... For now
