    Hey! Looking good. Thanks for the pics, that watts link on the back is looking nice.

    if I may though,
    I was looking through your pics and your front end has a small issue with steering.
    not huge, but you will get a bit of scrubbing on dry pavement turned full lock.
    looks like the outer steering links you have are meant to be used mounted to the rear of the axle, when you use front steering the tie rods gotta be almost right up against the brake disks.

      Hey Burnin#2, honestly Didn’t think about it at the time. I was very limited on what I could run for steering with no room behind the axle because of the airbag cross member and where I wanted the grill. At the time we didn’t have access to a machine shop and I said screw it, we’ll see what happens lol. We’ve got a couple ideas brewing for it and now have access to a machine shop. For now the arms are on the back burner, we’ve got a bunch of other things to button up first.

            The only reason I noticed the steering issue is that I had the same problem with the front air bags taking up all that space.. I built my own backing plates to remedy the problem.
            albeit a small problem.
            It's lookin bad ass!

                              Lol thanks man!
                              Little more work on the arms and started to get the harness all plugged in. Still gotta pick up a few sensors i forgot about. Also we started to get the AN fittings on the fuel line. Finally put the computer in the badass bracket my other buddy built for me!
