Those look big and schweet. Very nice.

May need to think about changing out those bump stops so you don't rub the inner fenders in the front.

Maybe. I know the rear has more room than the front does. About the only way i could think to test it would be an RTI ramp, fork lift, some random sloped piece of concrete. And then check to see how much you need to add. May be able to add just a spacer to the rear one to extend it, i am not sure. I think Uphill runs 315 nitto;s. PM him or check his build up thread and see if he runs extended bump stops.

p.s. i saw you had the pics linked up to photobucket earlier and switched them.
If you click on the "img code" line under the picture in photobucket and then just paste into a post it will place a direct picture of what you want. That way the pics are big and don't require a click. If you were trying to do that.

Looks great. Adds a bunch of ground clearance. The alloys look good with them. I am wondering what the height is to the bottom of the rocker panel.

It drives great! I don't feel much, if any power loss yet. I do plan on re-gearing eventually, but have some other higher priority mods, first.

I'm running 1.5" spacers up front and I'm not anywhere NEAR rubbing the UCA's.

The only time I rub is when I turn hard left in reverse. I think Kris (projekt4) has the same issue.

I will be putting in extended bumpstops next week, as well as cranking up the front shocks.

Projekt4 and I both jumped on a GREAT deal we found on CraigsList.

They were take-off's from brand new Hummers. The tires all still had the little nubs on them, basically BRAND NEW.

We got them for $150/each. :bigthumb:
