not trying to bust *****. just trying to warn you but you should just trim the fenders. that thing is gonna be so ridiculously unstable at that height. im at 7.5" trimmed with 35s and they clear perfect. i could also be a lot lower.

the only reason why i went so high is for the water the ground in fl isnt to bad with the hills and stuff but once i get the offsets for the front that will def help

What type of axles you got under there? Hate for you to try to have fun and break one cause it wasn't strong enough for the tires. I take it that it'll be a home brew snorkle to save 400+ buck. Love to see some actions shots to see why it needs to be so high

No kidding. Unless you have some ACOS in there and they would have to be spun to the bumpstops.
