You mean you were out living rather than at your computer eagerly replying to my post? Shame on you.. :wink
How gnarly did you cut your bmc to fit 37s with wheel spacers? I could probably read your build thread since I'm 'scribed to it. :lol:
I haven't talked about it much. Mostly 'cause I'm just a poser right now. The biggest issue for me is the plastic fender flares. You can see where I self clearanced the driver side the other day. I'm going back to 34's this week for a little weekend wheeling but have been DD'ing on 37's without issues for a few weeks now. Just planning out my turns. I can only go about 80-90% each way without rubbing at parking lot speeds. Any unexpected bumps while turning (think 1/3 curb height) kills the plastic flares. I know I should just remove them but have been waiting for the Marlin RCLT kit which pushes the tire forward a few inches away from the firewall and then I know I can fit them easily. If RCLT doesn't pan out for some reason I would consider putting 35's on.How gnarly did you cut your bmc to fit 37s with wheel spacers?

Full lock:Street driving is actually not that bad right now if I go slow. I have actually rubbed the rear tire mudflap area when I turn going too fast tho. I'll leave them on until this weekend. If I was serious about keeping the tires on my current setup I'd have to cut the body mount back a little further, put sway bars back on, go a full 3" lift front and rear and remove front and rear fender plastics and mudflaps, and improve my alignment. Maybe put on 1.5" wheel spacers instead of 1.25" and still it would rub the firewall will stuffing and turning.
They're still having some issues at the moment. No A-trac with lights on the dash. He's thinking bad wheel speed sensor. At least the locker works now!Good to see Bumblebee up and moving . You have about 308 days . to be ready
For sure the MT long travel is a great kit, especially on 35's. I would recommend the MT setup to most people. I also like to try new things as you guys know so I'm really excited. Its sad I was just looking back at old pics and its taken about 2 years in planning to get my FJ build moving again in this direction. And my shocks have been in the basement for a year and a half...Tell them to just get a locker for the front . COs are cool and i really thought hard about getting them BUT what i learned this summer is that my FJ works really well with the MT long travel . The only thing that has held me back is the approach angles and i have a fix in the works for that . I have 1 more trip in 2 weeks MCR and then i will start phase 3
