    25" would be a tiny lookin' little tire... mine are 29" OD and I think they look too small... what size are the whitewalls you put on there, they look awesome

    My tires don't hit at 29", but I had to notch the floor for the driveshaft and raise the tranny crossmember

    You didn't have to do anything with the front end and you lay the frame in the front?

    had to relocate the shocks and get creative w/the exhaust on the passenger side... but the arms, ball joints, fender wells, etc are stock

    I have an EDC and no battery at the moment or I'd get under there and snap some pics... I'll see what I can do this weekend though... I realllllly don't remember having to notch/relocate the arms... the crossmember, shocks, and floor were the big ones

    kevo, if you are still running a 205/75R15, your tire is about " shorter and 1/2" narrower than my G78-15

    I'm running 205/75/r15's... so if I use a tire height calculator... it says my OD should be 27.11"... no wonder they look tiny to me
