there have been some changes to my rig lately, in the form of more lift, and some parts missing as they are no longer required,,

this was the back axle swap, complete, take out the old LS 373 diff, and in with the new 410 geared with aussie locker, and new shocks, trailmaster ssv , and superlift springs,

No , i cut off the tab and tried, but a 33 won't go under, gets caught between the sway bar, and the back bumper .
we looked at Jons and it was different in the back than mine, oh well, may have to get a basket, or just clan out all my crap, and put the spare in the back,
