wheels and tires

Thank you so much for following through with the pictures of the wheels and tires mounted. They look great! Do you have ANY rubbing at all? Did the backspacing work out well? Did you have to move your front bumper forward at all? Depending on your response.....I will be ordering the EXACT same set up. Thank you for taking the chances I can't afford to. I plan on ordering the springs from amazon for $70 a pair and the wheels from summit for $107 each. Thank you for sharing your build. It looks great!

No rubbing anywhere so far. I trimmed the inside corners of the front bumper after I put it on and I shimmed it out about an inch too.

Bought my springs on amazon too. Bought my wheel on eBay for $97 each with free shipping and no taxes

Ok, based on your success, I just dropped the money on 2 Moog cc824 springs, 4 Raceline Rockcrushers and 4 Mickey Thompson ATZ P3s (My trails are the beach). I also may have gotten carried away and purchased the Viair 444C dual compressor On board air setup as well. Thank you for all your help.

Here's a picture of how I cut my bumper. Used a 4" grinder

Looks great! I'm jealous. My planned $1500 beach buggy has turned into a $5000 overhaul. I saw the bumper pic earlier in the thread but didn't realize how much you shaved. I went back to day and compared and I will do the same for sure when I space the bumper out an inch. I have my engine out and am rebuilding it currently but realized today if I put a new engine in front of a 228K mile E4OD, I will be sad when it fails. So I pulled it today to rebuild as well. Your thread is keeping me going though, realizing that soon I will have a great ride again. Keep up the good work and thanks for keeping us posted. Another mod I realized I needed today was a 200 amp alternator and the list goes on.......
