its looking awesome. did you end up making the front fenders too? i want to see more pics of the wheels and such, i have only talked to him about it and it seems like it is snowballing into an awesome rig.

i like how the upper link mount is near the lower link mount on the frame. would this cause a greater pinion rotation during suspension cycling? if we could get away with strengthening and lengthening my links without moving my cats, i would love that.

yeah, those cats are right where the link mounts would go.  Your pinion move down as the axle droops more because the upper link is shorter than the lowers.  We need to move the cat slightly to the inside to clear a longer link.

this does look pretty awesome though. Basically acts how any custom link set up would. I hope he doesnt brag about how jeeps are awesome because they can flex a lot.
