    I stopped by the shop and the install is going fine. Man, that Core4x4 stuff is beastly.

    Based on my actual before measurements, with the new tires and suspension, I'm predicting fender height increasing from 36.5"-F to 39.38" and 39"-R to 41.38", with the rake decreasing from 2.5" to 2".

    Looks sweet. How's the ride/handling? Any tire rub? What'd the lift measurements end up at? I have so many questions, haha. I ended up ordering Icon Stage 1 w/Delta Joint UCAs (not installed yet), but Fox 2.0 front & rear w/Zone UCAs was my other consideration.

    So, I only have about 15 minutes driving, and it seems fine. It’s slightly firmer around town than the stock stuff. I haven’t measured yet; but will soon.

    Have you tried turning at full lock in reverse? Also curious about rubbing. Btw I love the tire set up.

    Not in reverse; but full lock going forward and so far, no rubbing. I will experiment tomorrow.

    The shop did say there was no rubbing at all; but I will experiment tomorrow.

    AA41643D-37DD-497F-9E28-DEEE456CEAF4.jpeg Ok, here’s a before and after pic. Sorry it isn’t in the exact same spot or orientation.

    Before fender height was Front-36.5”, Rear-39”

    After fender height is Front-39.5”, Rear is 41.5”

    I can’t wait to clean off the tire shine goop the shop put on. Also can’t wait to get up to speed on the sandy forest roads. It should be fun.
