Got the tires on today - I will try to take some pics and post them up tomorrow. Everything went well and I got it done for cheap. The tires cleared without a problem but I decided to do some fender trimming anyway just to get the corners out of the way.

I am no longer stock Mr. Green Mr. Green

You shouldn't have to trim the front fenders, just disconnect and go on some trails, they'll trim themselves Finger

Lookin good. You might want to look for lighting at harbor frieght.

Dissconnect the front sway bar...you'll get more flex out of the front end that way when offroad.....

Disconnect your front sway bars, once you get more lift where your tires won't shred your fenders/flares (and in turn shred your tires) you need to buy/make some sway bar disconnects (see my write up in tech) so that your front tires can pivot independant from each other.

All that I just said= Mad Flex.

I figured that's what you were talking about. Heard a lot about disconnecting the swaybars but never really knew what that meant. Now I know what you're all talking about. I am assuming that sway bar disconnectsare some kind of "quick release" dealies so that you don't have to wrench em out everytime..?.. I will go read the write up now....
