I've been reading through this and there is a lot of great information. Now that you've had this for awhile has there been any long term alignment issues with your setup? Thanks. Great pictures.

Saw your link to this thread and this is exactly what I want my 08 V8 to do. Love it. Have any regrets or anything you would have done different?

Besides a huge drop in gas mileage (ha)? Heck, I knew this was going to happen once I start modifying my rig 8). We didn't buy a V8 for economy, that's for sure. Well, actually it's not too bad. I'm getting about 14.3 mpg avg, while I was getting 16-17mpg brand new. However, I'm runnning heavy 34" LT tires. Originally, after all the mods, I was running 33" P-rated Wrangler Silent Armors and I was getting around 15-16 then. So tires will be your biggest factor.

Nope no regrets. If you read my objectives in the OP, my truck now exceeds my expectations.

I had problems originally aligning the rear, but eventually worked it out by taking to a place that specialized in alignements for modified rigs. Everything up to specs and no long term tire wear problems.

So why did you go with the ARB bumper instead of the Shrockworks? Also what winch did you install and have you used it yet?

Ahh.. because it was FREE! My Pathie was the prototype of the new ARB bumper. See here:

Recognize the Pathie? Went with the classic Warn XD9000
Also was the guinea pig the for the air locker. While I was up there, picked up the new ARB fridge as well. :D
