Bette late then never to start a build thread. It set up decent right now. But am starting to make it bigger and stronger.
current set up:
35" procomps
15" soft 8's
Rustys long arm
6 1/2" RC coils
Custom rear leaf set up with extended shackle
Procomp exporer shocks with piggy backs
Slipyoke Eliminator
Ford 8.8 rear w/disk 4:10 gears
stock d30 w/4:10 gears.

It trails fine. But I want to lock it. And don't want to lock the front running 35's ..

Got the rear axle under and new rim mounted. It looks to sit nice under the Jeep I'm loving it so far can't wait to do the front. Just not sure if I wanna sell my rustys long arm and do a custom 3 link..

Got any pics of your axle front mounts?
and maybe do inner sleeves on the front since it has the vacuum disco housing on it
