Not a whole lot of it, but boy is it balanced:




And that's with BDS 2"ers in ft, RE reverse-eyes in back.

I can't wait to see how good it will do on an incline. And that huge D30, that's almost as bad as a toyota diff with D60 outters.

How can you say that you beadlock/stock wheel thang going on doesn't rub that bad... It looks like it's close to rubbing already, and your wheel's barely turned... Like I said, 80' turning radius

unless he's running spacers on there it would rub like a sonofabitch. mine rubbed pretty bad when I was running 32s with stock wheels. that is a nice looking jeep though.

Right now it doesn't rub at all except on the shock, which I'm gonna relocate fwd (I moved the axle fwd 1").
Steering stops are set the same as I had with 35s. Turns OK, used to it I guess. Too much angle blows ujoints anyway.

I'll measure the turning radius sometime.

Oh yeah, mine sags a little on the passenger side also.

Ok so I'm stupid.........

I have to ask. What does this do better than someone "unbalanced"? I mean to be perfectly balanced, what does it do or prove?

How balanced are you when you are on a sidehill?
