I didn't want the tires to stick out, its still wider than stock and its a daily driver. Plus i didnt want 12" of lift to clear them. I still use it for haulin stuff around. Plus i can get it into tighten spots. Nobody likes a big sloppy hole.

After all that time and work i at least want to keep it looking nice until its first meeting with a rock. Really the pictures don't do it any justice. It drives perfect.
