RE 5.5 installed, it\'s on little tires!!

I finally finished up putting the lift on yesterday, the Jeep looks funny with 6 inches of lift and 30's under it. I'm going to finish up tomorrow with getting the rear shock mounts welded on and trying to adjust the arms a bit(any pointers, I set them up to RE's specs).

Also, today, I ordered my HS9500I, that should be in next week. I'm still waiting on the rear gears and front and rear install kits to come in(UPS said there was damage to the package and sent it back), once that stuff comes in, it'll get put in. Hopefully my 37 MTR's will be in by next weekend too!

I'll have pics of my "little" Jeep tomorrow[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Please say you aren't driving it like that! Keep it covered until the tires come. [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: RE 5.5 installed, it\'s on little tires!!

I still need to adjust the pinion angle. Also need to work out all the "perks", any suggestions as to how to adjust all the arms for optimum performance. Also, I ain't got no exhaust on it yet, the rear gears and install kits haven't arrived yet, I just ordered my winch yesterday, and I'll probably have to get either coil spacers or a body lift to clear the 37 MTR's. Other than all of that, things are going well.

that looks like a lowrider with hydraulics pumped up. just don't tell me your new tires will be wraped around some dubs or i'll think that you've been smoking to many dubs.
