Nice build. What made you decide on 4.5" BS? I thought for the larger builds you needed to go to 3.5"
I'm about to pull the trigger on the same suspension - RK 3.5" suspension with Fox 2.5.

Thanks Joe.........That’s RK recommended backspace for Rubi axles, probably would need 3.5” BS on Sport/Sahara axles beings there not as wide.

I like the look of the wheel sunk in, but I didn’t want to go to -38 offset which the 3.5 backspace is, so I opted for the -12 offset/4.5 backspace. I’m about 1/2“ to 3/4”away from the lower control arm at full lock turn.

Congrats on your new build.

Helping the wife understand the importance of picking her line. It’s just a small example but it was perfect for her to see the difference. You can see how slick it was when it stopped, you can see it slide back down.

This post is also exiting for me because I’ve just recently learned how to post videos on here... :)..... I’m not a very educated man, I can hold my own with a wrench but technology has left me in the dust I’m afraid.......😕. I know this is silly and mundane to you techy dudes, but I’m the old dog that learned a new trick even though they say it couldn’t be done.....🤣.

For you guys using long travel shocks or coil overs and a Rancho diff skid, and are hearing a clunk when flexing rear wheels, it’s probably this......

Diff skid is hitting gas tank skid, when drooping drivers rear wheel......just a heads up.....:)

Very nice build Roky! Are you thinking of adding the Artec Truss kit to your axles?

Thanks brother........ probably not unless I decide to go bigger tires, but I think for now I’m just going to run it like this for a while. I’ve got some parts on the shelf, dynatrac ball joints, rock jock upper control arm joints, Yukon rear axle shafts, etc.. I’m just waiting till I need them, trying to get a feel for how long oem parts last running 37s.

Word on the street is you and some buddies are heading my way, if so , be sure and reach out.
