Ditto, but I like the mad max look.

You'll definitely need some mudguards on the front if you want your paint to stay in good shape.

looking nice! Hows the clearance on that back wheel? It looks like its really close to the wheel well.

Where did you order your setup?

The tires themselves or the wheel offset/tire combo of the wheels?

I would have never expected that to look good, but I like. I like a lot actually, nice job and GREAT job not doing the norm!! Those tires look thick, any pictures of it in access mode w/ the suspension lowered??

Good job.. and I second the mud flaps, look great on black RRS and will help keep it cleaner (just a bit though).

Thanks for all of the compliments. My search for a used set of LR3 rims fell though, but I was able to find the Redbournes for a great price. They only came in chrome, so I had them powdercoated. I currently live in New Orleans where the streets are terrible, so I wanted to go with a larger tire after bending a rim on my other car. No rubbing in the rear so far. I had to trim the hard plastic lip off the fenders in the front. I will post some more pictures in normal mode and access. I am thinking about running a small rod-rod full-time, installing it before I get it alligned. Maybe 1.5" in front, 1" in rear. Has anyone run a setup like this for any extended period of time?

I've been running around on MT/Rs and Johnson rods for about 500 miles. No issues other than a squeaky sway bar bushing that some SI lube fixed. Love the lift kit.

I've not done an alignment yet, as I'm going to run 22s and a lowering kit in the summer, so I'll take a bit of extra tire wear, as I only drive about 3000 miles a year (i travel a LOT, and ride my bike to work a lot).
