Hey guys and gals:

Well done! I'm excited to see what they look like. What tires are you putting on them?

Re: WK2 going to Moab's

They look good.

Do you have the HD brakes?

Where did you get the spacers?

Thanks.

Stock laredo, painted the breaks, the spacers i bought because the fat weld from the front caliper was touching, so i went to the local auto parts, since it was just a very small amount needed, i didnt want to buy expensive 1.5" spacers

The tire fits just right inside the fender
