Looks good dude! And yes the 31s look bigger than normal. Maybe its the offset of the wheels. Maybe my tires wouldnt look so bad afterall if i lifted mine. hrmmmm the mod bug is biting me. but its like twice as expensive to lift a 4wd suspension.
I have a similar manik guard. I jacked it up last time i went wheeling. Had bend it back into shape
You don't hear anyone jumping their stock Explorers 4' in the air eitherOriginally posted by SCEXPLORER
Its all about torque. Since the 3" lift spindle is longer and brings down the location of the force there is more torque to bend it. Just as it is easier to bend a bar at the end of it then it would higher up on the bar. But, who knows, the stock one could've bent also, is just that i don't hear anyone bending their stock spindle.
