Sorry about the lack of pictures. I forgot the camera the first day of the long arm installation. Here are a few with the 4.5" RC LA and 34" LTB's. Putting the 8.8, 4.88's and lockers front and rear in this weekend. Im gonna drive it around as is till then. Only about 1" of clearance as it sits, hopefully Josh will take care of that with some custom flares. Let me know your thoughts.

Tires and wheels look perfect under the flares. Can't wait to see some outside pics of it. By the way are those coil springs silver or black?

If its not broken then lets take it apart and lose some of the pieces and then it will be.

The springs are silver. Why, does this matter?? Im gonna add an additional 1.5" in the front and then Josh can build some custom flares to give me the clearance needed to flex out.

Was just wondering I've never seen RC send anything other then black parts. Was the control arms powder coated silver also.

Yep. all the part are the same color. The long arm setup is awesome. Im gonna put the stock tires back on it to see what kind of flex it has. lol
