Do not have any specific questions...
However I like the idea of this as I would get discouraged looking threw multiple post quotes with pictures and see 2 pages of the same thing. Hopefully make for a better main thread. Or at the least easier to read threw.

Yes I think @Quader1 hit this one out of the park. So with that said @jermil01 , how wide are those wheels? How have you over come the turning radius? Any issues with breaking knuckles, or did you change them over to Crane, Reid racing? Or do I have to wait :popc1: until you post up the answers:deal to those questions :shrug

Best part is I also found a second family here at FSB, made some great friends along the way. Hard to explain it, but you form a bond with other folks that drive Broncos, and as corny as it sounds owning a Bronco (or maybe it owning you) gets in your blood.
You hit the nail dead square on the head here!!

10 inch wide rims..I think. With this set up I have to mindful of my turning radius, they have a tendency to rub the R/A's pretty good in a tight turn.
knock wood no broken knuckles and they are stock. adding a set of the duff tubular arms is on my to do list.

@warhoss

I dig the darker tailgate panel, but there are ways of cleaning the original back up. I used an acid solution made for wheels, followed by mothers mag and aluminum polish. Sucker shined like a diamond in a goat's ass

@RicksBroncoBeast hows the mileage with your setup?
Mileage is great. I went from 11 MPG's to 16 MPG's. If I were to change the gears to 4.10:1 it would increase to about 20+. These engines are super torque monsters, even for their relatively small size cubic inch size.

@RicksBroncoBeast How in the world does the stock 8.8 not snap with a 4BT and all that compound gearing!!! You should change your name to "FeatherFoot"!
Not much of a feather...lol just fortunate so far. Even towing around that heavy Trailer Beast the 8.8 is holding up which is a testament to the 8.8... But I do know that they are the next week link that needs to be upgraded and I am going to be upgrading to 1 ton diffs in the near future. I think I am going to go with leaf-sprung front using Alcan springs for as much wheel clearance as possible. Alcan also offers what called an "orbit Eye" bushings that give a sick amount of twist for even more articulation...

Sweet. So SAS up front?
I Love the TTB which is why I invested so much in the TTB RCV axles. But now that I am upping the game, I really want the stability of the SAS. After researching all the designs at this point I have decided on the Leaf instead of the coil. Both have their pros and cons and in the end I may change my mind again, but I am pretty sure that the Alcon leafs are the way I want to go. I will also be doing a high steer with hydraulic assist. Unfortunately, I do not have a excessive amount of cash so I have to do one thing at a time. Right now I need to pay off the Atlas 4 t-case...lol. Then the axles...
