Yeah, I'm armored up pretty good, have the Rokmen belly pan and gas tank skid. Weak point are clearance on the 35's and gearing. The 4.10's just do not cut it. I'll be switching to 4 inch springs just to get a solid 3 inches of lift. The armor is really dragging it down. Have to open up the rear wheel wells, I'm grinding front and back. Also the four link, all the pieces are laying here I just need to lock down the geometry and put it together. Oh, yeah, and triple the thickness of my link tubes. Turned one into a horseshoe last weekend.

Other than that I'm good to go (snort!)
The rocks were sticky, kinda like slick rock. I amazed myself today. Haha

Sounds like it will be a good setup. I feel you on gearing. It was obvious my 3.73 gearing were my weak link today.

Yeah, gearing is my big thorn right now. I'm going to be setting up a high pinon D30 this winter and that will be geared to 4.56. I dropped back to 32's this weekend for slaughterhouse and the combination of gears and tires worked really well. So 4.56 with the 35's will get me to the same place.
