I bet he's counting tire size increase over stock & maybe a body lift, but still...how are you getting 16" of lift. Let's see some pics, that thing must be ginormous!!!

I don't need to change the angle. The Atlas gives a little more length, plus it is high pinion to begin with so no issues. I am running Tom Wood's Super Flex joints though.

Thanks! Yes I agree, I need 37's. I'm going to goneMOAB in May and hopefully will have 37's by that point. I will probably end up going to a 17" rim at that point too.

Been running nitrous through it for about 10 months. Been through well over a dozen 10lb bottles. Had a couple bugs early on & bent 2 throttle blades, but it's all fun & games now
