      I guess following me around Moab and looking at my Rock Crusher cover gave you the bug for your own! :p:

      Looks great, that cover is serious armor and has that "Bling" factor to boot!:thumbsup:

      Bought the shackle outriggers from ruffstuff. As for placement you have to measure the leafsprings. And I did my own alignment, not much to change on a solid axle.

      Drives great at highway speeds, it is my DD. Although I think my tires need to be rebalanced.

      Great! I love the work and how clean it looks. Great work! One year and mine will start. Got to buy the house first, wife says so! Can't wait, another benefit for me is I can unlock the hubs and the front D-Shaft and the T-Case wont always be spinning at freeway speeds seeing as how mine was AWD so the front Axle doesn't disconnect. I get a front D-Shaft vibration over 72MPH. BTW your sliders look great as well!

      Probably... I dont think mine would be confused with another ST that has a SAS done.:) i am in St.Charles on the weekends when I go out and see my family, I live in So.County off Tesson Ferry. I always wonder when I see other Explorers/Rangers, etc on the road if they come here. I get alot of people pointing and looking at my suspension when driving around, seems like most people realize what i did.
