I don't have the axle lined up yet so one side sticks out more than the other.

Extended Radius Arms

I extended the radius arms with .250" wall 2" DOM tubing. They are about 2' longer than stock radius arms. I used 2.63" Ballistic Fab Joints and made my own mounts out of 3" c channel.

Got a ballistic fab welded cover off of ebay that was used.

Looks way better with the body lift out.

Yeah I think so too. Before it made the 35's look tiny. Now I think they look perfect for the lift.
