Look's great! Could you add pic's of the rear? I would be interested in seeing that if possible.
Yes- just realized there are none, here are a couple different ways I have run it - always changing!

Wow thats one heck of a build...
Titan swapped , with 35's and properly re-geared.
Thank you very much ! Its been a labor of love, started with the 4.56's and found the 5.12's to be perfect with the manual
