    Kind of a bummer, as I know it would be nice to keep that increased backspacing (as I would as well).

    So my next question...and what I've been debating, is will you be going with 68.5 Dynatrac axles keeping the 3.5" backspace or go to 72.5 axles with 5.5" bs? How close is the end of the Dynatrac hub face to the face of a typical 8.5" wheel with a 5.5" bs? I can't tell you how many hours I've been contemplating these options.
    With Rubicon axles, 3.5" of back spacing is what I would recommend if only because there are so many wheel choices available. When it comes time to upgrading axles, 72.5" would be ideal and I would probably run a wheel with more back spacing. 5.5" is ideal but they are hard to find.

    This is correct. Even the rear sway bar drop brackets come with tabs for limiting straps. The amount of travel you get with this kit is unreal especially being that you can still run it at a low stance.

    Thanks as always, you and Cindy make great video's.
    So glad you enjoyed the video and yes, if having Off Road Evolution do the work for you is an option, I would highly recommend it if only because you can be sure they will do excellent work.

Trying to get an idea of what it would cost an average Jane, like me. As always, thanks for the AWESOME content!

    1. It took 2 guys 2 days to install everything.
    2. Off Road Evolution charges a flat rate for the install.

    Hope that helps

    LOL - it'd be nice to have Off Road Evolution do the install for you but I have a feeling it'd cost a whole lot less to get it done locally.

    Finally watched, some serious work done there. Looking fwd to part 2. Thanks for sharing. Maybe part 2 will answer this, but did you have to get any Drive shaft work done?

    So, unlike some coilover kits that force you to have a sky high stance, EVO has always been known for making kits that allow you to keep a nice low stance. Needless to say, we set ours to sit at about 3.5" of lift and that's pretty much where we were sitting before. This made our existing drive shafts work just fine

    For whatever it's worth, Mel's been running this setup with OE drive shafts.
